Broadband CPE Shipments to Reach 151.9 Million

  • ABI Research
SINGAPORE — Worldwide broadband customer premise equipment (CPE) shipments are expected to reach 151.9 million by the end of 2014, according to new findings from ABI Research. “The residential gateway segment continues to grow at a rapid pace: ABI Research expects global shipments will grow more than 9 percent in 2014,” comments Jake Saunders, ABI Research's VP and practice director.

Although DSL and cable CPE device shipments still dominate the market, DSL and cable shipments are likely to drop slightly in 2014, due to slow subscriber net additions. However, as subscribers continue to switch to more advanced broadband access, VDSL and DOCSIS 3.0 device shipments continue to grow robustly. “North America and Europe are the regions with the highest VDSL device penetration. This is because operators in Western Europe are upgrading DSL infrastructure with VDSL and VDSL vectoring technologies. Total VDSL CPE shipments in the two regions account for around 50 percent of worldwide VDSL CPE shipments,” adds Khin Sandi Lynn, industry analyst.

DOCSIS 3.0 Devices Dominate Cable CPE Market
ABI Research expects shipments will grow 11 percent in 2014, representing nearly 85 percent of total cable CPE shipments.

The expansion of the fiber-optic broadband subscriber base is a key driver of the rapid growth in fiber-optic CPE shipments. In 2014, fiber-optic CPE shipments are likely to grow around 16 percent YoY from 2013, reaching 41 million. ZTE has the top position in the fiber-optic CPE device market in 3Q 2014, followed by Huawei. ZTE also has the top ranked position in the overall broadband CPE market. ARRIS owns the second largest market share in the overall broadband CPE market, followed by Huawei.
