SAN MATEO, Calif. -- According to a new study from ElectroniCast, the global market consumption of DWDM Filter Modules was $406 million in 2000. North American communication networks consumed 69 percent of DWDM filter module value in 2000. The North American share will drop to 56.9 percent but grow in value to $2.20 billion over the forecast period, as shown in Table 1. The Japan/Pacific Rim and Rest of World shares will climb rapidly, to a combined 22.7 percent of the market by 2010. According to ElectroniCast President Stephen Montgomery “Thin Film technology held the highest global consumption value, in 2000. Waveguide Array Gratings were second in relative market share. As the requirement for more channels (wavelengths) per module increases each year, Thin Film will demonstrate a smaller market share, conversely, Array Waveguide Gratings (AWGs) are more accommodating to higher channel counts; therefore AWGs will lead the marketplace by 2010.”ElectroniCast Corp.
