News and Business

Technavio has published a new report on the global submarine fiber cable market from 2017-2021. The analyst has announced the top five leading vendors in its recent global submarine fibre cable market report. The report also lists eight other prominent vendors expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global submarine fibre cable market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 5% during the forecast period. Huge investments are expected from consortia and private enterprises due to the exponential increase in demand for high-speed Internet services.

As there is a huge increase in Internet use and cloud technology, the existing cable networks will not be sufficient to meet the needs of the users. Therefore, a huge increase in the number of projects of submarine cable networks is expected.

Gaurav Mohindru, a lead engineering tools research analyst from Technavio, commented, “The key vendors will witness only a moderate level of competition from new vendors as the market requires them to make huge initial investments to enter the market.

He added, “Also, technological needs create a barrier for the new players in the market. Moreover, there is huge competition within the existing vendors to obtain new projects as the number of projects in this field is low and each project is worth billions of dollars.”

In the report, Technavio market research analysts have identified the following key vendors, with associated comments about their position and prospects:
