The recent development of polymer optical fiber (POF) at home and abroad was summarized. The special characteristics of the perfluorinated POF were introduced and its wide potential application was predicted. POF is the most suitable in conjunction network project, especially using with quartz optical fibers. Facing this market opportunity, it is a right choice to unit colleges, research institutions and manufacture corporations to accelerate the industrialization of POF.
