The ROADM WSS component market is predicted to grow at a 9.5-percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2011 to 2016, says Infonetics Research. "Growth in the overall WDM ROADM equipment market hasn’t been stellar, but it has far outstripped the declines seen in ROADM WSS units and revenue," says Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst/Optical. "I think we have learned that the WSS market is more cyclical and tied to the ebb and flow of common equipment deployments." Other findings: Unit shipment declines coupled with price reductions caused ROADM WSS component revenue to fall 34 percent in 1H12 from 1H11, ROADM WSS component revenue as a share of WDM ROADM equipment fell to a five-year low of 6 percent, and no single vendor controls the WDM ROADM optical network equipment market.
