The optical IC market will reach $1.8 billion by 2006, predicts In-Stat/MDR in a report entitled "Optical ICs & PHYs Keep Bits Flowing at Light Speed."

"IC vendors will enjoy a bountiful future as new networks are constructed, existing ones are upgraded and the yet untapped access and enterprise markets are penetrated," said Eric Mantion, a senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR.

According to In-Stat/MDR, the current production-grade ICs will be sold into two major end-user markets: module suppliers and communication equipment vendors. The company also stated that while there is growth for all speed grades of optical ICs. The 10Gb Ethernet market is expected to experience a phenomenal growth rate. At the same time, short range OC-192 will also have a healthy growth, since it will be very popular in the MAN as the most inexpensive SONET method for connecting separated meshes of 10Gb Ethernet based equipment.
