the optical fibre market

1.1. Presentation and market definition

Optical fibre, a technology that has long been mastered, particularly in underwater telecommunications cables, is becoming the main technology for Internet access. This allows data rates to circulate that are unequalled by other technologies currently on the market (ADSL, satellite), both in transmission and in reception.

To make this technology operational for as many people as possible, it is therefore necessary to deploy these fibre optic cables to every home and house that may need them. Thus, the French government has established several guidelines as part of its France Très Haut Débit plan, which is expected to link the whole country to fibre by 2022.

The optical fibre market is therefore undeniably a very rapidly developing sector, now and in the coming years. French manufacturers are also Europe's leading specialists in the production of optical fibre cables. However, there are some limiting factors, such as the threat of foreign competition, particularly from China, the risk of a lack of production capacity for this major plan, or technological competition linked to the advent of 5G.

Finally, on the side of access providers, the four major French operators have obviously seized this opportunity, and are more or less equitably preparing for the deployment of fibre, mainly over the last few kilometres of deployment (connection of housing).
