The global optical time domain reflectometer market was valued at US$239.614 million in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 11.72% over the forecast period to reach US$465.933 million by 2023. An optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is an optoelectronic instrument used to characterize an optical fiber by injecting a series of optical pulses into the fiber under test. It is an important instrument used by organizations to certify the performance of new fiber optics links and detect the problem with existing fiber links. The demand for OTDR devices is increasing due to the evolving enterprise network and data center architectures across the globe. As enterprises consume more storage resources and adopt higher bandwidth data center architecture, the resilience of the cabling infrastructure becomes highly dependent on OTDR’s as to ensure fiber reliability. The global optical time domain reflectometer market is expected to show an impressive growth owing to the increasing number of data centers and expanding telecom infrastructure across the globe.
