With the pace of time to accelerate, 2016 has quietly come to an end, not far from the 2017 is waving to the majority of fiber optic cable. Increase power fire poured oil on the industry this year, the entire industry confidence, has made impressive achievements, so here, small make up the optical fiber cable people analyze the rough industry trend next year.
According to the related data analysis, combined with the optical fiber and cable industry market situation in recent years and the development of international telecommunication business, for the future market, generally should have the following several aspects: domestic optical fiber and cable demand will still continue to grow, is expected to increase by about 15~20%; the overseas market potential to be tapped, especially in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America most expected, compound growth rate of 10%; submarine cable is still a large market demand growth, the key is to upgrade the 400G cable.
The three network operators in the domestic market, high-speed fiber-optic broadband network is a key project in 2016, the basic layout of the network related to the future of the market cake proportion, therefore, not in the short future, will this one region have fierce competition. From the data point of view, China Telecom will strengthen the construction of all-optical networks, plans by the end of 2016 to achieve 100% all-optical City coverage in the country. China Unicom will fully complete the transformation of the optical network this year, providing users with end-to-end high-speed all-optical network access services. According to the 2015 annual report disclosure, China Unicom in 2016 will invest 16 billion 900 million yuan for fixed broadband and data services, investment of $21 billion 300 million for infrastructure, transmission network construction. China Mobile 2014-2015 in 4G construction has achieved absolute leadership, and broadband access is still lagging behind. December 2015 to 31 billion 900 million acquisition of China Tietong, officially sounded China Mobile vigorously build fiber-optic access horn. We expect China Mobile's 2016 net profit is expected to reach 150 billion yuan above, for three years to become China's largest broadband access operators to lay a solid foundation.
Apart from the domestic market, in foreign markets, in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America's huge market potential, in more than and 100 countries around the region, only 12 countries can independently produce cable, therefore, these countries need to import the cable is extremely large, the relevant data show that in 2014 the demand for fiber optic cable a total of 30 million core km. This figure is equivalent to 20% of China's total demand in 2014. And the three regions still have strong growth potential, I believe that with the operators to enhance both fixed and mobile broadband services continue to expand and upgrade the network, is expected next five years the average annual growth rate of more than 10%.
In the optical fiber and cable industry, submarine cable is also a huge piece of cake, the transmission of information of submarine cable way than satellite transmission, more secure, more flow, higher efficiency, in 2015, 97% of the world's information is transmitted through the submarine cable, only 3% are delivered via satellite, and submarine cable connecting continents and countries and islands, usually in the distance of thousands of kilometers to several million meters, the market is extremely large, according to the analysis of the relevant departments of statistics, the global submarine cable next few years of compound growth rate can reach 57% in the future.
In the analysis, the domestic needs in the fiber optic cable to meet the majority of the market at the same time, to enhance their strength, in order to get a space for one person division of the fierce competition in the future market.
