An analysis of the global submarine cable revival as over 25 systems are expected to be built in the coming years due to increasing demand for bandwidth
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the Global - Infrastructure - Submarine Cable Revival
report to their offering.
After the collapse of the previous submarine cable boom at the end of 2001, BuddeComm predicted a revival in this market before the end of the decade. The first signs began to appear in around 2004, coinciding with an increasing demand for bandwidth. Activity in the submarine cable sector has been continuing through-out 2008 - in recent times there have been many cable build-out announcements around the world, and some major systems are again being constructed. Over 25 systems are expected to be built over the next two to three years and network upgrades are also on the agenda for some existing systems. This report provides an overview of the submarine cable sector, with a focus on developments since the last boom. It also includes information on major in-service and proposed submarine systems. Further information on submarine cables in the Asia-Pacific region is available from a separate report.
Key topics covered:
• 2008: the revival continues
• Historical overview
• Boom/bust cycle starting up again - brief analysis
• Demand for bandwidth grows
• Construction costs overview
