Passive Optical LAN Market: Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Trends, and Forecast up to 2023

Request Discount Enquire Before Buying

Global passive optical LAN market size is expected to exceed USD X.xx billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR between 21% and 22% over the period of 2017 – 2023. Passive Optical LAN is a point to a multipoint architecture of local area network, which allows transportation of data, voice and video services at gigabit speeds through one optical fiber to multiple end users. POL is based on passive optical network technology. POL is an all-fiber network that is replacing traditional copper based cables and copper UTP patch cords are only utilized for connecting devices at the endpoint. Passive optical LAN has better reach and scale than conventional copper LAN. Reach is obtained by using single mode fiber in the cabling plant due to its ability to provide a footprint worth 12.4 miles. Passive optical LAN provides capability of carrying unlimited bandwidth, better immunity against radiations and better network security. Passive Optical LAN is available for residential and enterprises customers. POL architecture comprises of switch for enterprise access, passive optical splitters and workgroup terminals containing Ethernet ports connected by optical fibers. Aggregation switch can handle thousands of IP connections and TDM phone connections. POL does not need the external power source for operation. POL is cheaper when compared to the traditional copper based LAN.

Market Insights 

Alcatel –Lucent SA, Huawei Technologies Co.Ltd and ZTE Corporation are the major players with two-thirds of share in the global passive optical LAN market. Huge investments in research and development, entry of more vendors, acquisitions for market consolidation, capacity expansion, promotion of enterprise & residential LAN solutions, and partnerships with telecommunication companies for 4g & next generation services characterizes the global passive optical LAN market.

Increasing demand for bandwidth is a major factor that drives the growth of the passive optical LAN market. The factors such as flexibility, scalability, better security features and ability to handle the huge number of devices in enterprises with greater bandwidth drives the demand for POL from the corporate sector. Passive optical LAN is eco-friendly as it uses optical splitters and limits the use of non-renewable equipment and it drives the demand for the passive optical LAN worldwide to replace copper based networks. POL networks maintain HVAC standards to reduce power consumption and it is a major driver for the global POL market. Ease of upgradation of POL networks, as it requires only replacement of electronic equipment, while maintaining the existing fiber cables, enhances the demand for POL. Among applications, SDHS and SONET are anticipated to attain major share in POL market, as they are data protocols, which have the ability to expedite steady voice conversation. Wavelength division multiplexers & demultipliers segment accounts for the significant share in the POL market. Growing usage in networks with ultra-high capacities, the demand for variable optical amplifiers is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period 2017-2023.

Passive optical networks have lesser range than the active optical networks. Data transmission may slow down during peak time due to latency factor. These two are major restraints for the global POL market. As the initial investments, installation costs of passive optical and operational costs are less when compared to copper based networks, the major players in the market are anticipated to gain a lot of opportunities for network upgradation worldwide. Rolling of wider 4g & next-generation services and applications by telecommunications is anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the major players in the POL market.
