and China Optical Fiber Preform Industry Report, 2017-2021″

report has been added to Research and Markets’ offering.

Optical fiber preform, a core raw material of optical fiber products,
accounts for around 70% of the profit of optical fiber. Global optical
fiber preform output and demand were 14.9kt and 13.8kt in 2016, up 16.0%
and 10.2% from a year ago, respectively, and are expected to reach
30.2kt and 25.6kt in 2021 separately, driven by rapid development of the
optical fiber and cable market.

China, the world’s largest producer of and source of demand for optical
fiber preform, produced 6.1kt and demanded 7.668kt in 2016, 41.0% and
55.4% of the world’s total, respectively, indicating a supply-demand gap
of 1.568kt, still in a state of short supply. However, as Chinese
enterprises improve optical fiber preform technology and put production
lines into operation, the gap has narrowed gradually, from 68.4% in 2010
to only 20.4% in 2016 and estimated 18% or so in 2021.

There are about 20 major optical fiber preform producers worldwide in
this highly-concentrated market, including Corning, Sumitomo Electric
Industries, Shin-Etsu Chemical, Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable, and
Hengtong Optic-electric. Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable ranks first by
global market share (based on output), 13.4% in 2016, followed by
Corning (about 12.9%).

The country’s efforts to promote tri-networks integration, Broadband
China, 5G Construction and Internet Plus have brought unprecedented
opportunities for the Chinese optical fiber and cable market, driven
rapid development of the optical fiber preform market, and stimulated
Chinese optical fiber preform producers to expand capacity.
