Passive Optical Network Equipment Market

Passive Optical Network Equipment Propelled by Rising Demand for High Speed Broadband Services

Passive optical network equipment such as optical line terminals, optical network terminals, and related hardware enable fiber to the premises connectivity by facilitating transfer of data, voice and video signals from the central office to businesses and homes. These devices are adopted for applications comprising fiber-to-the-home services, high-speed internet access, cable TV signal distribution, and business ethernet connectivity. Deployment of PON networks promotes scalable, cost-effective and reliable broadband services to cater growing data and connectivity needs.

The global Passive Optical Network Equipment Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 22.92 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 22% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

Growing implementation of smart cities and homes across major economies has resulted in rising demand for reliable high-speed internet connectivity. This has accelerated deployment of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks based on Passive Optical Network (PON) technologies. PON systems enable higher bandwidth capabilities and improved network capacities to meet burgeoning data traffic arising from IoT devices, HD video streaming services and cloud applications. Major service providers are extensively upgrading their access networks with next-generation PON solutions such as XGS-PON and NG-PON2 that offer data speeds over 10Gbps. On the back of sustained investment towards broadband infrastructure development and network densification initiatives worldwide, the passive optical network equipment market is expected to showcase pronounced growth over the forecast period.
