According to the 2018 Q3 global optical module market research report released by market research organization LightCounting, global optical module sales achieved 8% year-on-year growth in the third quarter, while data center operators have strong demand for high-speed optical modules, only the number of DWDM 100G ports. The year-on-year growth was 48%, and the 200G port sales increased by 189%. Although the shipment of 400G is still very small, it has increased by 272%. In LightCounting's sales forecast for the whole year of 2018, it is expected that the global optical device market will be controlled within 3% within 2018 due to the surge in cloud services and data center market demand. LightCounting described "God bless the Cloud!" as a drop of less than 3%. It can be seen that the market space for optical modules used in cloud service data centers is huge.
In addition, according to statistics and forecasts of Ovum Consulting, 100Gb/s optical modules began to grow rapidly in 2017, and it is estimated that by 2022, 100Gb/s optical modules will have sales revenues exceeding US$7 billion. In the application of 100Gb/s optical modules at different distances, the growth rate of 2km and 10km is large. Ovum Consulting believes that the optical modules for 2km and 10km applications will exceed US$3 billion and US$2.4 billion by 2022, respectively, and the market prospect is broad.
Faced with such a broad market prospect, Guangxun Technology's non-public offering of funds is used to invest in high-speed optical module capacity expansion projects for data communications, continuous improvement and upgrade of 100Gb/s related products, and further expansion of high-end optoelectronic devices and The production capacity of optical transceiver modules will also further increase the localization rate of high-end optical modules.
