Latest Research Report Totally Dry Cable Market discusses latest developments and trends in the Global Totally Dry Cable market, and the evolving business strategies being adopted and leveraged by key players operating in the Totally Dry Cable market.This new report adds to our expanding repository of trusted industry reports, which enable our clients to assess the most promising commercial areas in the Totally Dry Cable market and identify key business opportunities.

The Global Totally Dry Cable Market is anticipated to grow and reach USD 8,993.2 million by 2024, according to the report published by Report Bazzar. Gels have improved application in hair, shoes and deodorants. However, anyone who has worked with gels in fiber optic cables knows that gels tend to be messy and follow wherever we go. OFS has manufactured high performance fiber optic cables that are less expensive in nature and more reliable.

Through their research and development progress, they have kept steady pace with customers demand to provide them with innovative, cost-effective solutions to everyday network challenges. Traditionally, cable cores were once water-blocked with gels. In an effort to reduce the overall deployment cost and improve the customers’ installation efficiency, OFS introduced gel-free cables. They essentially introduced super-absorbent polymers (SAP) to suit the fiber optic cable designs. These gel-free cable products have been used in both aerial and underground applications with resounding success. In fact, it has been reported that owing to its favourable properties, gel free cables are often used compared to gel-filled cables.


The preparation time drops by 80% for gel-free cables over gel-filled cables. This means that splicing process is much faster. Such faster splicing process means quicker restoration in the event that an errant vehicle takes out a poll. Moreover, if there is absence of gels, this means that no cleaning materials are needed. This in general helps to reduce the cost, “ickiness” and potential irritants. As a result, the “ick” factor drives the consumers to go through deep cleaning of the splicers and cleavers more frequently than they would otherwise do. Such cleaning saves thousands of dollars over a short time period. Such factors have driven the overall market in recent past and is expected to witness similar trends over the forecast period.

Gel free cables or “no gels” help to reduce the cleaning solvents and paper towels, which makes it more environmental friendly. The additional benefits of gel-free cables relate to installation and cable operations. As reported by OFS Company, gel-free ADSS cables are up to 20% lighter than comparable gel-filled cables. This leads to have further advantages also. A lighter cable is easier to handle and install. Moreover, lighter cables have longer lengths compared to heavier cables, which results lower tensions on poles and makes the hardware in certain circumstances less expensive. The lower hardware costs leads to more savings opportunities.   

However, super absorbent polymers(SAP) has one major drawback which is in the presence of salt the SAP chemistries suffer greatly reduced water blocking performance. For this particular reason, a number of network operators have opted not to deploy dry cables or even if they opt for such cables, they should be in contact with sea/salt water. Such factors are expected to cause a restraining factor for the global totally dry cable market over the next seven years.

Totally dry cables have its application in both aerial and underground installations for nearly a decade. Introduction of totally gel free ADSS cable is a significant milestone for the company OFS.  They wanted to introduce products that would meet the customers need in such a way that would cover their requirements. The PowerGuide ShortSpan DT cable enables the customers to reach their service reach and to serve the remote rural locations cost-effectively. Totally Gel-Free PowerGuide ShortSpan DT ADSS addresses IEEE 1222™ Standard and is used in underground facilities. These cables generate less waste and are lighter compared to other cables. There is no need of special cleaning solvents required to clean the gel-free cables.

The multimode mode fiber type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 8.5% over the next seven years. The most common fiber used for data centre backbone cabling and premise is multimode which are available at different bandwidths and grades. These fibers are chosen for various application according to the customer’s needs and which are cost-effective in nature. Each spool of multimode fibers are tested and graded based on effective modal bandwidth (EMB) and differential mode delay (DMD) measurements.

 Middle East & African region is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR of 9.6% from 2017 to 2024. Growth in telecom industry would positively affect the demand for totally dry cable. Rising demand for internet connectivity countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE and Iran would assist the regional market growth over the next seven years.
