Global RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) Market valued approximately USD 279.1 million in 2016 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 11.65% over the forecast period 2017-2025. Rapidly growing entertainment industry, increasing use of mobile phones and other cellular communication after innovations of fast internet technology like long term evolution 5G are driving the growth of Global RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) Market. Increasing market of cable television networks, and the growing demand for high-speed cellular connectivity because of the increasing use of smartphones, the growing use of internet worldwide, increasing military applications like improvement in communication are the factors that are rising deployment of RF over fiber products. The Radio Frequency over Fiber is a technology which is used to transmit radio frequency over a fiber network. By using the RFoF, a large bandwidth can be modulated so it supports a greater number of users as compared to regular wireless technology. The RFoF technology consists of RF signal and fiber optic link, and this can be used to send wireless signal in outdoor ranges. RFoF technology has numerous advantages over other coaxial cable like low signal losses, hence RF signal transmission over a long distance using fiber optic network is possible with no need of signal amplification. The RFoF has an attractive property that Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) has almost negligible effect in optical fiber communications.   This feature of fiber optic communication, has made it suitable for transmitting microwaves. RFoF have many good features, but the cost of installation of RFoF such as antenna and other broadcasting products depends various factors such as the distance and frequency range, and therefore the overall installation cost of RFoF varies as per requirement. This is the factor that hinder the growth of the Global RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) Market.

The whole RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) industry has been divided into various segments i.e. Product, Component, Application, Vertical, End-Use and Regions and each of which is studied as an individual study by our research analysts and consultants. Each of the subsegments has been analyzed and estimated at country level to form a regional scope. After finalizing the regional and segmental revenues the total revenue for Global RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) Market is calculated as a sum of all the different segments.

Some of the key data points considered under the Research Methodology to calculate the revenue for Global RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) Market includes:

  • Revenues from key companies
  • Company market share analysis
  • Consumer spending analysis
  • Regional export and import analysis
  • Regulatory Trends
  • Sales revenue generated by various products/applications in different countries/geographies

The Research Methodology starts with extensive data mining, using paid & free authentic information sources such as white papers, industry journals, trade magazines, Hoovers, Factiva, Statista, news websites, technical publications, independent studies etc. a team of dedicated research analysts and associates work on all of the gathered data to extract relevant information. Key factors such as ongoing & upcoming industry trends, external & internal driving factors, restraining factors, growth opportunities and value chain analysis have been verified in order form qualitative part of the report and to back the estimation team for quantitative analysis.

We utilize a combination of top-down and bottom-up methodology for industry estimations & forecasts. Additionally, we employ data triangulation techniques to verify each of the estimates and forecasts through primary interviews and feedbacks. An extensive primary and secondary research have been conducted with the key industry people, through questionnaires, telephonic conversations, email conversations, and interviews to verify industry trends and estimations. Various government websites/portals and paid data sources are considered as a key source of secondary research.

All of the estimates are derived from simulation models which is our proprietary technique. Each of these models is different from another. These models are a combination of correlation, regression and time series analysis. Each of these models is basically divided into two types namely economic and technological. Economical models are used to determine short-term market estimates and technological models are used for long-term estimates & forecasts. Both the types are used collectively in order to derive market estimates for the base year as well as for forecast period.
