An optical fiber drawn from glass or plastic is a flexible and transparent fiber. It is faintly thicker than human hair in diameter. It is used to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber, which transmit higher bandwidths over long distances than cable wires. These fibers use fiber optic technology for transmission of information. These fibers carry more information than a conventional copper wire carries. Optical fibers comprise of three major components namely core, cladding and buffer coating.
There are different type of fibers such as multi-mode step-index fibers, multi-mode graded-index fibers and single-mode fibers. Single-mode fibers is the highest performing fiber amongst the other two. Communication and sensors are the major applications of optical fibers in the global market. Optical fibers are used in areas like telecom & broadband, oil & gas, utilities, private data networks, cable television, biomedical and many others. Modern telemedicine devices are the emerging application use of optical fibers system. It is used to transmit digital diagnostic images. Space, military, automotive, and the industrial sector are the various sectors where optical fibers are used widely.
Investments in information technology and telecommunication sectors and industrial and economical development of countries like U.S., China, India, Brazil, and few European countries are driving the growth of the global optical fibers market. Leading companies in the optical fibers industry are Corning Inc., Prysmian S.p.A, Sterlite Technologies Ltd, Yangtze Optical Fiber and Cable Co. Ltd., Fujikura Ltd, and others

CUSTOMIZATION OF REPORT:
Optical Fiber: An optical fiber (or optical fibre) is a flexible, transparent fiber made by drawing glass (silica) or plastic to a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. Optical fibers are used most often as a means to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber and find wide usage in fiber optic communications, where they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths than wire cables.
