Optical fiber preform, a core raw material of optical fiber products, accounts for around 70% of the profit of optical fiber. Global optical fiber preform output and demand were 14.9kt and 13.8kt in 2016, up 16.0% and 10.2% from a year ago, respectively, and are expected to reach 30.2kt and 25.6kt in 2021 separately, driven by rapid development of the optical fiber and cable market.

China, the world’s largest producer of and source of demand for optical fiber preform, produced 6.1kt and demanded 7.668kt in 2016, 41.0% and 55.4% of the world’s total, respectively, indicating a supply-demand gap of 1.568kt, still in a state of short supply. However, as Chinese enterprises improve optical fiber preform technology and put production lines into operation, the gap has narrowed gradually, from 68.4% in 2010 to only 20.4% in 2016 and estimated 18% or so in 2021.


There are about 20 major optical fiber preform producers worldwide in this highly-concentrated market, including Corning, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Shin-Etsu Chemical, Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable, and Hengtong Optic-electric. Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable ranks first by global market share (based on output), 13.4% in 2016, followed by Corning (about 12.9%).

The country’s efforts to promote “tri-networks integration”, “Broadband China”, “5G Construction” and “Internet Plus” have brought unprecedented opportunities for the Chinese optical fiber and cable market, driven rapid development of the optical fiber preform market, and stimulated Chinese optical fiber preform producers to expand capacity. Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable began construction of YOFC Qianjiang Science Park in Mar 2016, put its Phase I into production in Mar 2017, and will build Phase II and Phase III. After reaching designed capacity, the project will deliver capacity of 1.5kt/a optical fiber preform and 20 million core?km /a. Meanwhile, the company also initiated PCVD11 capacity expansion project with the aim of lifting optical fiber preform capacity. Hengtong Optic-electric reorganized its optical fiber preform business and established a wholly-owned subsidiary- Hengtong Photoconductive New Materials in 2017, planning to add 1.5kt/a optical fiber preform.

In addition, the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China announced in Aug 2017 that it decided to conduct a one-year expiry review investigation into the anti-dumping measures imposed on the imports of optical fiber perform originated in Japan and the United States, and during the expiry review investigation of the anti-dumping measures, the imports of optical fiber perform originated in Japan and the United States will still be subject to anti-dumping duties at the scope and rate released in the Ministry of Commerce Announcement No.25 of 2015. Affected by this, coupled with short supply of the product, optical fiber preform prices have risen since 2015, hitting RMB1,011/kg in 2016 and expected to go up further to an average of RMB1,100/kg in 2017.
