Some of the active optical cable companies profiled in this report include Finisar Corporation, FIT-Foxconn (Avago Technologies), Amphenol ICC, 3M, and Hitachi Cables America. 
 
Lucintel forecasts that Ethernet active optical cable will remain the largest protocol type and it is also expected to witness the highest growth due to the increasing usage of active optical cables for high performance computing and growth in inter and intra rack connectivity within a data center.
 
Data center will remain the largest application and it is also expected to witness highest growth due to increasing demand for high speed connectivity between switch racks and server racks. The increasing migration of networks from 3-tier to 2-tier in data center architecture, will lead to growing deployment of active optical cable to support high data traffic rate and fast signal transmission. 
 
Quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP), C form-factor pluggable (CFP), small form-factor pluggable (SFP), 10 gigabit small form factor pluggable (XFP), and other form factor type active optical cables are used for the high speed data transmission.  QSFP will remain the largest segment; it is also expected to witness the highest growth because of its ability to support a wide range of data rates up to 400G. 
 
North America is expected to remain the largest market due to the presence of mega data centers of technology giants such as, Google, Facebook, IBM, and Microsoft. Asia Pacific will experience the highest growth over the forecast period supported by growth in data centers, high performance computing, and consumer electronic devices.
