About the Fiber Optics Industry: Fiber optics is the future of communications and fiber optic connectors are one of the major profit centres within this market. The signal transmission business is in the early stages of a fiber optics bull market. All signal transmission, in their many and various forms, are being converted from electrical, using copper wire and coaxial cable, to fiber optics. In the USA, the Obama administration has recently pledged US$7.2-billion for 100 million Americans to have access to super high speed internet. This high speed internet will require significant fiber optic infrastructure. An increase in demand for shorter optical links is fueling the market for fiber-optic connectors and mechanical splices, according to ElectroniCast Consultants (www.electronicast.com). Demand for high speed access is bringing fiber closer to end users. Demand for shorter links, where connectors represent a substantial share of the total installation cost, is accelerating. According to Stephen Montgomery, president of ElectroniCast, "Worldwide multimode connector consumption value is forecast to nearly double during the 2010-2015 timeframe."
