The FTTx market is estimated to grow from USD 9.70 billion in 2018 to USD 14.31 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.10% from 2018 to 2023. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing penetration of FTTx network architectures in commercial, industrial, and residential verticals.

This report segments the FTTx market by architecture, distribution network, product, vertical, and geography. By architecture, the FTTx market has been segmented into FTTh/p/b, FTTn/c, and FTTa. The market for FTTn/FTTa is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2018–2023 owing to the growing use of optical fiber in mobile backhaul for communication and rising implementation of FTTx architectures in telecommunication networks.

By vertical, the FTTx market has been segmented into industrial, commercial, and residential. The commercial vertical is expected to dominate the FTTx market during the forecast period. The increasing penetration of 5G and VoLTE technologies is driving the growth of FTTx network in the commercial vertical. FTTx is widely used in industrial, commercial, and residential verticals. The industrial vertical includes applications such as telecommunications, railway, transportation, utilities, and energy & power. Commercial and residential verticals include buildings, apartments, offices, homes, multiple dwelling units, single dwelling units, and malls.

Fiber to the x Market

The FTTx market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand for broadband, especially in APAC countries such as China and India, which account for about one-third of the world’s population, is likely to drive the FTTx market in APAC during 2018–2023. In APAC, the residential vertical is expected to witness strong demand for FTTx owing to the increasing requirement of fiber networks to overcome shortcomings such as narrow bandwidth, data overwhelming, interference, and higher maintenance and operating costs of copper networks. The major factor affecting/hindering the growth of the FTTx market is high installation cost.

Major players in the FTTx market are Allied Telesis (Japan), CommScope (US), AFL (US), OFS (Japan), Huawei (China), Shanghai Sun Telecommunication (China), ZTT (China), Fiber Optic Telecom (China), ZTE (China), Alfocom Technology (China), Verizon (US), Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (India), AT&T (US), China Telecom Corporation Limited (China), Vodafone Group PLC (England), MTN Group (South Africa), Telkom (South Africa), Altice (Netherlands), America Movil (North America), Nippon Telegram and Telephone Corporation (Japan), Corning (US), Himachal Futuristic Communications Limited (India), Pactech (US), Fibernet (Israel), and Tellabs (US).

Drivers

Increasing demand for higher bandwidth

The existing internet subscribers commonly use internet for surfing web pages, downloading songs and movies, and exchanging data over the internet. These applications do not need higher internet bandwidth; hence, the required bandwidth can be obtained through traditional copper cable networks. However, applications such as feature-length movies, software as a service (SaaS), IoT, and smart TV/internet TV require higher bandwidth, for which fiber cable networks are used.

Internet video communication is growing at a rapid pace, especially after the inception of Long Term Evolution (LTE). Presently, video communication accounts for nearly one-third of the internet traffic. This growth is due to the increasing demand for applications such as video sharing over the internet, instant messaging, video calling, and video on demand (VoD). All these forms of internet video communication are accelerating the demand for higher bandwidth. Also, the increasing penetration of applications such as video and web conferencing, AirPrint and AirPlay, and virtual cloud storage apps such as Dropbox, iCloud, and Google Drive is driving the need for higher bandwidth internet connectivity.

Growing use of optical fiber in mobile backhaul for communication

Mobile data consumption is rapidly increasing day by day due to the growing use of smartphones and tablets. Continuous increase in data consumption is creating heavy data backhaul in mobile communication. The existing network infrastructure usually faces problems in efficiently handling the huge volume of data at the backhaul.

Fiber network is capable of carrying data over long distances with minimal loss. According to the FTTH Council Europe, using fiber for mobile backhaul is becoming the norm in advanced mobile networks. Presently, operators tend to choose gigabit passive optical network (GPON) with various configurations, such as FTTp and FTTh, for handling higher bandwidth requirements. Key operators such as AT&T, Verizon, Cox, and TeliaSonera are currently deploying FTTx networks for their LTE network backhaul. Also, many service providers are shifting toward fiber-fed networks for mobile backhaul.

Opportunities

Rising number of mobile subscribers

The number of mobile subscribers is increasing owing to the various services, such as mobile TV and video on demand, provided by service providers. As the number of subscribers is increasing, the existing copper cable network is getting overloaded, affecting network performance with respect to speed, efficiency, and reliability. The common problems arising due to the increased usage of data over the same network are data lagging, video buffering, data dropping, and data congestion. FTTx architecture can overcome these shortcomings of the copper cable.

Increasing demand for video-focused data or information

Video is transforming the way we understand/interpret content; businesses and individuals are more interested in receiving content in the form of video. This is encouraging service providers to convert the content into video format to engage and attract customers. This, combined with the rise of IPTV, video calling, e-learning, and many more video-focused applications, is pushing telecom service providers to transform their networks.
