PON Equipment Market to Reach $13.57 Billion in 2019

NEW YORK - The global passive optical network equipment market was valued at USD 3.97 billion in 2013, growing at a CAGR of 22.7 percent from 2014 to 2019 to account for USD 13.57 billion in 2019, according to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, "Passive Optical Network (PON) Equipment Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019."

Rise in FTTH Subscribers Bolsters European PON Equipment Market
Rising demand for energy conservation coupled with rise in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) subscribers in the European region has bolstered the growth of passive optical network (PON) equipment market. Furthermore, low cost of ownership, high return on investments, advanced security, optimized bandwidth connectivity and simplified network operations are other factors driving growth in passive optical network equipment market. High investment in research infrastructure, technological advancements and growing demand for higher bandwidth serve as excellent opportunities for the market and are expected to reinforce the passive optical network equipment market in the years to come.

Gigabyte passive optical network (GPON) equipment accounted for two-thirds of the market share in 2013, due to rapid usage of PON equipment. The GPON equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.5 percent over the forecasted period.

Rapid Usage and Wide Range of Applications Boosts GPON Market
GPON optical network terminals (ONTs) accounted for majority market share in the year 2013 owing to the growth in GPON. As ONTs are components located at the subscribers end, the number of subscriber is similar to the number of ONTs. Thus, the GPON ONT and OLT technology is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.5 percent and 28.4 percent, respectively, over the forecasted period, owing to its rapid usage and wide range of applications served by GPON.

In 2013, the Asia Pacific market was the leading revenue generator for the passive optical network equipment market. The dominance by Asia Pacific is due to large number of countries such as Japan, India, China and Taiwan among others demanding higher bandwidths owing to increased internet penetration and also investing a great deal in research and development infrastructure. On the other hand, North America and Europe accounted for over half of the market share, owing to continual usage of passive optical network equipment for networking purpose and have a strong optical network setup.
