The fiber-optic cable industry has soared since the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This legislature included large investments for domestic upgrades in broadband infrastructure – with a goal of bridging the digital divide in the U.S. – helping the industry reach new heights.

Furthermore, during this period, the need for these broadband connections for both consumer and business continues to grow. Just look at your phone and think about how you personally use apps, video, and Internet access in your daily lives. Count how many devices in your house are now connected to the Internet (phones, computers, tablets, gaming consoles, etc.) and how many will be in the near future (refrigerator, electricity, even full homes).

Regardless of the so-called "Internet of Things" (IOT) in use, all of the functions and communication are eventually delivered over fiber optics. The demand for fiber is insatiable and growing. It is the conduit of choice to deliver high-speed connectivity to the last mile for business and residential consumers.

But with this demand comes increasing pressure on optics manufacturers. Over the last 10 years, a number of factors have contributed to production delays and delivery.
