The submarine communication cables market is set for a rapid growth over the forecast period. In terms of revenue, the global submarine communication cables market accounted for USD 22 Billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 35.3 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of around 7%. The submarine communication cables carry around 90% of the data traffic across the world. In addition, their total carrying capacity is in terabits per second. As a result, they are the most valued cables for the OTT and communication providers, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft. Most of the economies consider submarine cables as a vital component of the economy and have set regulations to protect it from threats. For instance, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) have created safety zones that prohibit activities that can damage these cables, which are linked through Australia & Rest of the World. In addition, it legalizes the installation of new submarine cables projects.
Submarine Communication Cables Market: Overview
A submarine communications cable is a cable that is placed on the seabed in between stations that are present on the land in order to transmit the telecommunication signals across the ocean. The modern submarine communication cables make use of the optical fiber technology for transmitting the digital data such as the data from the private data traffic, telephone, and Internet.
