A submarine fiber cable with a high-capacity communication capability is an essential wireline communication medium between two continents, countries, or islands. Most submarine fibers use the optical amplification technology to carry high-speed data traffic across geographies. The length of the submarine fiber cable varies over a distance of few kilometers to more than 35,000 kilometers. Most submarine fiber cable projects take several months or years for completion. Currently, most submarine fiber cables have a capacity of 10-40 Gbps. However, the adoption of 100 Gbps high-speed submarine fiber cables started only after 2010. Because of their high-speed capacity, the fiber cables carry a huge amount of data traffic every day. Currently, more than 97 percent of global data traffic is carried through submarine fiber cables, with the remaining 3 percent carried through satellite systems.
One trend that is expected to boost market growth is the rise in upgrade activities. The number of systems upgraded in 2013 was 19, and it was reduced to only six in 2015. Most of the vital submarine cable systems have been already upgraded to 100G. With the 400G technology expected to hit the market by the end of 2017, the demand for upgrade activities worldwide is likely to rise in the coming years.
A key growth driver for this market is the growth in bandwidth. The penetration of Internet in Africa is less compared to other regions in the world. Africa accounted for an Internet penetration of 27%, whereas the ROW registered nearly 50% penetration in 2017. This is a clear indicator that there is significant scope for expansion of telecommunications in the continent. With growing number of businesses in Africa, the demand for Internet connectivity is bound to rise. In order to capture this market potential, telecom operators and ISPs need to offer products that can meet user requirements such as reliable network and increased bandwidth.
