The Total Market Opportunity for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Component Suppliers Is Projected to Reach $8 Billion Over the 6-Year Period of 2015-2020

LightCounting Releases a Report Titled "Next Generation FTTx Optics: Catching the Second Wave 2015-2020"

EUGENE, OR--(Marketwired - July 30, 2015) - China closed 2014 ranked first in the world in terms of total FTTx subscribers. However, the latest Akamai's State of the Internet Report ranked China 84th in the world in average broadband connectivity speed.

The latest decisions of the Chinese government further accelerated deployments of Fiber to the Home with a target to replace all DSL connections in urban areas with fiber by the end of 2017. Realization of such a program would boost the number of FTTx subscribers in China to more than 200 million -- up from about 70 million at the end of 2014.

"The FTTH component market is red hot in 2015 and it should remain strong in 2016-2017," commented John Lively, Principal Analyst at LightCounting Market Research. "What happens in 2018-2020 depends on deployments of next generation PON technologies and the use of optical connectivity in the densely populated, developing countries of South Asia. There is very little doubt that China will be exporting their broadband networking expertise and technology, just like it does with its energy and transportation programs."

This new report provides 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 provides a five-year forecast of transceiver, BOSA, and triplexer shipment volumes, 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.
