Direct Attach Cable Market Worth $13.3 Billion by 2025

The global direct attach cable market size is expected to reach USD 13.3 billion by 2025 at a 36.4% CAGR during the forecast period, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising adoption of direct attach cables for data storage is likely to boost market growth through 2025. The data center landscape is changing rapidly due to increasing utilization of direct attach cables for data storage. Increasing investments by manufacturers in high-speed pluggable products have been driving demand for active optical cables and direct attach cables. This is in order to meet the requirements of high-density and high-bandwidth applications, whilst keeping power consumption low. Additionally, active optical cables act as the main transmission medium in data centers and High-Performance Computing (HPC) to ensure flexibility and stability of data transmission. The cables are used for short-range data communication and interconnect applications.

Expanding Internet penetration across the world is urging manufacturers and suppliers to invest in research and development activities with a view to develop better products for data transmission. As the production of active optical cables is a complex and expensive process, researchers are increasingly focusing on innovating reliable high-speed pluggable products, whilst keeping the cost of the final product low.
