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

Request Discount Enquire Before Buying

Global passive optical network size is expected to exceed USD X.xx billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR between x % and x% over the period of 2017 – 2023. A passive optical network is a faster light based multipoint telecommunication network system that brings optical fiber cabling as well as signals to the end user.In passive optical network operation, there are no conversions such as electrical to optical and optical to electrical. PON comprises of one optical line termination (OLT) at the carrier’s premises and numerous optical network units (ONU) near the end users. PON is ecofriendly and provide better bandwidth compared to copper based networks. PON provide higher efficiency as well as security, and uses packets which are larger as well as variable. In passive optical network, a single fiber can support 16-128 end users. One fiber can handle both the upstream and downstream data traffic. PON helps in reduced operating expenses as it involves shorter installation time, reduced power expenses and provide high reliability. PON with higher bandwidth helps telecom companies to provide faster data, voice, video and some other services. PON is enabling telecom operators to provide fiber to the home, fiber to the building, fiber to the cabinet, fiber to the premises and fiber to the neighborhood, unlike fiber to the business alone in the past. BPON, EPON, GPON and WDM-PON are major passive optical network structures.

Market Insights

Fiber to the home (FTTH) application is gaining more demand from telecommunication operators and it is expected to drive the growth of the PON market. Increasing data traffic is necessitating upgradation in infrastructure for enabling higher capacities and it is driving the growth of the market. The growing demand for conservation of energy and presence of robust optical network setup are anticipated to enhance the growth of the global PON market. Growing investments in research & development and in physical infrastructure by both private entities and public entities to improve the broadband connectivity and efficiency drive the growth of the global passive optical network market. WDM segment has the largest market share among components due to the rising broadband traffic, growing demand for cloud services and increasing deployment of FTTH/FTTP. The technological upgradation of networks infrastructure by major telecom companies is anticipated to drive the growth of the global PON network market. Increasing demand for GPON equipment and EPON equipment to meet bandwidth requirements and data intensive services are anticipated to drive the growth of the global PON market during the forecast period 2017-2023. 

Higher installation as well as operation costs, due to the higher component costs, hinders the growth of the global passive optical network market. Moreover, difficulty in handling the failures of passive optical networks and the shortcomings of ranges available for the operators in their premises is some other restraints for the market. Growing demand for higher broadband bandwidth applications and high capacity optical networks are anticipated to present growth opportunities for the major players in the global passive optical network market, especially in the emerging economies. GPON segment provide growth opportunities for market players due to advanced technology in terms of technology and network operations, reliability and better return on investment.
