Shianfu Optical Fiber and Cables Co. Ltd is constructing a new fiber-optic cable manufacturing plant to expand production capacity by 50 to 60 percent next year. The plant is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Company executive Bai Xining, remarks, "The supply shortage that was experienced during the second half of 2000 has been eased this year. Fiber-optic cable output in China recorded one million kilometers last year, a 20 percent increase over 2000."

Bai likewise notes that the upturn in the optical fiber sector is likely to result in an oversupply of fiber-optic cables in the near future. "There are too many makers in this line, and manufacturers continuously boost capacity. Overall fiber-optic cable output will possibly exceed local demand, thereby provoking a fierce competition."
