Lit fiber is fiber-optic infrastructure that is used to transmit data through pulses of light over cable consist of thin components of plastic or glass. Lit fiber is significantly used in fiber-optic infrastructure projects, owing to its capability to provide enormous bandwidth connectivity for high-speed internet and data services. Lit fiber is also commonly known as high-speed connectivity options for businesses. Lit fiber is used by businesses that are engaged in wholesale ISP services, wholesale Internet access, and telecommunications services to provide a wide bandwidth for customer applications such as web hosting, video, VoIP, file sharing, data backup, and email.

One of the primary factors driving the growth of the lit fiber is rise in adoption of broadband internet connection, smart TV, smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc. among users. Since the inception of lit fiber in IT and telecommunication industry, demand for lit fiber has increased significantly, owing to its capability to transmit the data at a higher speed. In addition, compared to traditional copper lines, lit fiber interconnections can transmit data quickly and more securely. Further, in IT and telecommunication industry, dependability on lit fiber has increased, as it enables network experts to manage and repair the network easily and efficiently. As a result of these factors, demand for lit fiber has rapidly increased in networking, IT & telecommunication, industrial, and aerospace & defense, sector which is expected to boost the demand for the market during the forecast period. For instance,
