The Global Market for FTTx Optical Components and Modules Is Set for a Second Wave of Growth In 2015-2020

EUGENE, OR--(Marketwired - June 04, 2015) - 'Fiber-to-the-X' is a key enabler of today's high-speed Internet, and is seen as a key enabler of future economic growth by governments and corporations alike. FTTx networks consumed more than 30 million optical transmitters and receivers in 2014, with a market value of $500 million. LightCounting Market Research projects that this market segment will exceed $1 billion by 2020 driven by adoption of next generation FTTx technologies in many developed countries and increasing deployments of FTTx in emerging economies.

"Demand for FTTx optics rose sharply in 2010-2012, as the Chinese government launched an ambitious broadband program" -- commented John Lively, Principal Analyst at LightCounting. "The market growth moderated in 2013-2014, but we expect a new wave of growth to start this year."

A preview of the FTTx market forecast is available for LightCounting subscribers now and the final version of the forecast will be released along with the report in July 2015. LightCounting has also shared its research notes from the recent FTTH APAC conference in a newsletter (

This report will provide a detailed look at the FTTx optical component opportunity, focusing on how product requirements will evolve over time due to changing operator service models and network architectures. It will also provide a five-year forecast of transceiver, BOSA, and triplexer shipments, prices, and revenues, with breakdowns by architecture and by OLT/ONU. Current and future FTTx architectures, service provider deployment strategies and trends, component requirements, products sold today, and the products needed for future systems are discussed. Leading vendors of FTTx equipment and components are profiled, and historical shipment data is included, along with a visual guide to FTTx networking.
