Types of Attenuators Covered in this Study
This is the worldwide market forecast of the consumption of component-level fiber optic attenuators in communication applications. The optical attenuators, which are covered in this study, are fiber optic devices used to control (reduce) the power level of an optical signal used in an optical fiber. Fiber optic attenuators are an important part of the optical communication link by allowing the adjustment of signal transmission into the dynamic range of the receiver. Either a fixed or variable attenuator is generally positioned before a receiver to adjust optical power that otherwise might fluctuate above an extreme range of the receiver’s design, causing it to generate errors. The fiber optic attenuator market forecast is presented by the following product categories:
-Bulkhead/Plug/Panel Mount (Build-Out) with Connector
-In-Line Jumper with Optical Fiber (not connector)
Fixed-type (not adjustable) fiber optic attenuators refer to the attenuator that can reduce the power of fiber light at a fixed value loss, for example, 5dB. While variable fiber optic attenuators refer to the attenuator that can generate an adjustable Loss to the fiber optic link. Fiber optic attenuators can be designed to use with various kinds of fiber optic connectors. The attenuators can be female-to-female, which are referred to as bulkhead- types; or male-to-female, which are referred to as plug-types. In-Line fiber optic attenuators are designed with a piece of fiber optic cable at any length and/or connectors.
Variable optical attenuators (VOAs) are either manually adjustable or electronically adjustable. VOAs have been widely used in fiber-optic communication, optical signal processing, fiber optic sensing as well as testing instruments.
Below, are three levels (or “food chain”) pertaining to the fiber optic attenuator marketplace. For the purposes of this study, we quantify and provide a market forecast for “Level 2”
-Level 1 - The chip, die, specialty fiber
-Level 2 – The component-level fiber optic attenuator
-Level 3 – Module/Device (array attenuators, integrated modules, other)
This market forecast report quantifies stand-alone component-level fiber optic attenuators, as well as component-level fiber optic attenuators that are inside value-added or integrated modules or device/equipment.
When counting (quantifying) variable optical attenuator array modules and integrated modules, which may have more than one component-level attenuator, each component-level attenuator is counted separately. For example: with an integrated value-added module, we count only the complete (component-level) fiber optic attenuator as well as cost-adjusting for the optics, optical fiber alignments, and optical fiber and associated packaging, and other required materials.
Variable (adjustable) attenuators are ideal for simulating cable loss for research and development (laboratory) testing of optical communication link power limits or reducing power in the links where receivers are in the process of being overloaded. Fixed in-line (cable assembly/jumper) attenuators can distinguish the color band coding process to simplify the specification identification of the optical communication link components during field installation, stocking, or maintenance operations. VOAs (variable optical attenuators) enable adjustment capabilities, so the injected loss may be simply reduced as specific components degrade and increase their own attenuation over a few years.
The variable optical attenuators (VOA), also known as variable fiber optic attenuators (VFOA) is a basic building block for several optical systems such as wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) transmission systems, optical beam formers, fiber optic adaptive controls, and other applications.
For over 25-years, has been tracking the worldwide use of component-level fiber optic attenuators in communication applications. In the market forecast, when counting (quantifying) variable optical attenuator array modules and integrated modules, which may have more than one component-level attenuator, each component-level attenuator is counted separately. For example: with an integrated value-added module, we count only the complete (component-level) fiber optic attenuator as well as cost-adjusting for the optics, optical fiber alignments, and optical fiber and associated packaging, and other required materials.
Attenuation is the reduction or loss of optical power as light travels through an optical fiber. The longer the fiber is and the farther the light has to travel, the more the optical signal is attenuated. Attenuation varies depending on the fiber type and the operating wavelength. For silica-based optical fibers, single-mode fibers have lower attenuation than multimode fibers. Typically, the higher (or longer) the wavelength, the lower the attenuation. This is true over the typical 800 - 1600 nm operating wavelength range for conventional datacom and telecom optical fibers.

Market Research and Analysis Methodology
-This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually over the past several years, but updated through the beginning of October (2021). During this period, analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the fiber optics industry plus telecommunications, datacom, and other communication industries, instrumentation/laboratory – R&D and factory/manufacturing, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of fiber optic link products. The interviews were conducted principally with:

The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics.
Customers also were interviewed, to obtain their estimates of quantities received and average prices paid, as a crosscheck of vendor estimates. Customer estimates of historical and expected near term future growth of their application are obtained. Their views of use of new technology products were obtained.
The analyst then considered customer expectations of near-term growth in their application, plus forecasted economic payback of investment, technology trends and changes in government regulations in each geographical region, to derive estimated growth rates of quantity and price of each product subset in each application. These forecasted growth rates are combined with the estimated baseline data to obtain the long-range forecasts at the lowest detailed level of each product and application.
A full review of published information was also performed to supplement information obtained through interviews. The following sources were reviewed:
Professional technical journals and papers
-Trade press articles
-Technical conference proceedings
-Company profile and financial information
-Additional information based on previous market studies
-Personal knowledge of the research team.
In analyzing and forecasting the complexities of the world region markets for optical interconnect products, it is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. members who participated in this report were qualified.
Bottom-up Methodology forecasts, as illustrated in the forecast data base structure, are developed initially at the lowest detail level, then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product used in the base year (2020), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data. analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward digital broadband communication equipment usage and economic payback.
