Optical Components Market Remains on the Upswing

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on JDS Uniphase and Oclaro

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - After posting significant gains to begin 2011, Optical Component stocks have plummeted in recent weeks. Gloomy forward outlooks from industry heavyweights have caused investor panic throughout the sector -- offsetting positive growth predictions from the analyst community. The Bedford Report examines the Optical Components Industry and provides research reports on JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ: JDSU) and Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR).

The independent research firm, Ovum, claims that the optical components (OC) market grew by 35 percent in 2010 to earn revenues of $5.6 billion. What drove the majority of the OC growth in 2010 were the ROADMs and filter segment, which grew 46 percent during the year, compared to 2009 and posted annual revenues of $0.9 billion. Darryl Inniss, an analyst at Ovum, says that Ovum expects the OC market will "continue to expand in 2011, but at a slower rate."
