PON market on track to hit US$7b in under 5 years

31 Jul 2018

The worldwide PON (passive optical network) market will grow to over US$7 billion by 2022, according to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, a source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data centre IT industries.

Next-generation PON technologies, including 10 Gbps EPON, XGS-PON, and NG-PON2, will drive the increase, growing at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate of almost 40% from 2017 to 2022.

“Where PON technologies are used for residential broadband services, 2.5 Gbps GPON will remain as the dominant technology due to its lower price and sufficient speeds,” says Dell’Oro Group senior analyst Alam Tamboli.

“However, for a number of growing use cases such as business services and mobile backhaul, next-generation PON technologies have capacities and capabilities that current generation technologies lack.

“10 Gbps EPON has already begun shipping strongly in China where current generation PON is widely deployed. Shipments of XGS-PON and NG-PON2 remain small for now, but we anticipate that XGS-PON will grow more rapidly. XGS-PON and its 10 Gbps symmetric bandwidth should meet operators’ needs for business services and mobile backhaul.”

The Dell’Oro Group Broadband Access 5-Year Forecast Report provides a complete overview of the Broadband Access market with tables covering manufacturers’ revenue, average selling prices, and port/unit shipments for Cable, DSL, and PON equipment.  

Network infrastructure equipment includes Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS), Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers ([DSLAMs] by technology ADSL, ADSL2+, G.SHDSL, VDSL, GFAST), and PON Optical Line Terminals (OLTs).  

Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) technology reflects Voice-over-IP (VoIP) or data-only.

Dell'Oro Group provides in-depth quantitative data and qualitative analysis to facilitate critical, fact-based business decisions.

According to the Dell’Oro website, this report aims to guide IT leaders within organisations to answer critical business questions.
