Weakness

Opportunity

1. Spend on optics to continue to increase as speeds increase: With the development of advanced technology and new applications, the information available on the Internet is travelling at lightening speeds. According to Cisco Visual Networking Index, the Internet Protocol (IP) traffic is increasing at a CAGR of about 25% per year globally. Web browsing, high-definition video and other common applications contribute about two-third of the traffic. This growth can be only supported by the use of Optical fiber. Hence, the increase in the amount of spends on Optics is proportionate to the increase of speed. As of 2020, Cisco invested almost $6 billion on Optics and Silicon companies which includes Core Optics ($99 M), Lghtwire ($271 M), Leaba ($320 M), Luxtera ($660 M) and Acacia ($4.5 B). As optics enables high-speed internet with greater bandwidth, businesses are highly investing in it, thus, increasing the demand of the product.
