Global Direct Attach Cable Market Overview:
Direct-attach cable is the factory terminated cable assembly that is used in the data centers, networking for point to point connections of network equipment. This DAC consists of a fixed length of shielded copper coaxial or fiber optic cable with a pluggable transmitter and receiver. DACs are found both active and passive, the active cables provide more advanced electronics inside which boosts the signal leading to longer distance coverage whereas passive cables are used for the connection of up to 10 meters because they don't have an amplifier to boost the output signal. The increasing demand for next-generation high-speed pluggable-products is boosting the growth of the market over the forecast period. However, the high costs associated with the set-up of optical cable networks, as well as the expensive raw materials used in the manufacture of optical cables, for instance, silica and plastic, are additional factors that can be the market hindrance.
