Total WDM equipment market to reach $8 billion for 2013, Huawei leads

Telecom Lead U.S:  Total WDM market which is comprised of both metro and long-haul applications grew 14 percent year-over-year in 3Q 2012 and is forecast to reach $8 billion for the full year 2012.  It is expected to climb further in 2013, according to the latest market report by Dell’Oro Group.


Huawei leads the WDM equipment market in 3Q 2012. Ciena was ranked second while Alcatel-Lucent and Fujitsu were ranked 3rd and 4th respectively.

“It was the year 2000 when the WDM market peaked at $7.7 billion and then promptly burst downwards to $1.8 billion,” said Jimmy Yu, vice president of Optical Transport research at Dell’Oro Group.  “Since then, it’s taken twelve long years to reach this milestone but we are finally on a path to best this previous revenue peak and to attain a new record revenue marker for the WDM market.”

“We’re forecasting the total WDM market to be $8 billion for the full year 2012 as a larger number of service providers roll out 40 and 100 gigabit DWDM wavelengths to meet the rising demand for bandwidth,” added Mr. Yu.
