World FTTx Revenues to Reach $195 Billion in 2019

  • IDATE
MONTPELLIER, FRANCE — Superfast technologies represented nearly 37 percent of broadband access subscriptions at end-2014, 8 points more than one year before, according to new findings from IDATE, a research firm that tracks global telecom, Internet and media markets. For the definition of superfast platforms, IDATE have considered three main architectures: FTTH/B, FTTN and FTTx/D3.0 deployed by cable operators)

IDATE has released the latest issue of its World FTTx database, which is part of its ongoing service covering the ultra-fast broadband market. It provides reference data on this market across the globe, covering more than 70 countries and 150 key players, and providing forecasts up to 2019.

Valérie Chaillou, FTTx lead analyst at IDATE, notes “growth perspectives remains still high with superfast technologies represent 37 percent of broadband access subscriptions at en-2014, and we expect ultra-fast broadband revenues will growth from 91 billion EUR in 2014 to reach 175 billion EUR in 2019.”

FTTH/B is still the leading superfast broadband solution, far ahead of FTTx/D3.0, followed by VDSL:

  • FTTH/B represented 62 percent of FTTx subscriptions at end-2014. Growth of FTTH/B subscriptions will continue until 2019, but at a lower pace than during 2014, year of real success in China.

  • FTTx/D3.0 represented at December 2014, 27 percent of FTTx subscriptions. After two years of significant growth, proportion of FTTx/D3.0 on superfast broadband is lightly decreasing (29 percent at end 2013).

  • VDSL, for its part, lagged behind, representing 11 percent of subscriptions at end-2014; same proportion than at end-2013.


The regional breakdown is very heterogeneous

  • Still a geographical predominance of APAC on the FTTH/B market.

  • FTTH/B is also the main deployed technology in both Middle-East and Africa and Latin America, but it is meeting stronger competition from cable-based technologies in Latin America.

  • FTTx/D3.0 is still dominant in North America and is generally growing more rapidly than other technologies.

  • There is considerable space for VDSL in Europe where incumbents still wish to optimize their copper networks.
