DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "FTTx Coverage and Capex: Worldwide Trends and Forecasts 2019-2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This report forecasts that the percentage of global premises covered by next-generation access will rise from 55.2% at the end of 2019 to 65% at the end of 2025.
The business case for investment in FTTP access networks has become clearer in both emerging and developed markets. FTTP roll-outs will drive up global next-generation access (NGA) coverage from 55% at the of end 2019 to 65% at the end of 2025.
This report provides:
- 7-year forecasts for flavours of FTTx and cable (DOCSIS3.0/3.1) coverage in 8 regions and 64 individual markets
- Analysis of the key trends, drivers and inhibitors of network roll-out of FTTx
- An assessment of the level of capital expenditure to 2025.
Key questions answered in this report
- How quickly will next-generation access (NGA) coverage grow across different global regions and individual markets?
- Which markets represent the most-promising opportunities for vendors in terms of NGA coverage expansion?
- To what extent can NGA coverage grow in emerging markets across the globe?
- What will be the scale of roll-outs from non-incumbent FTTP operators?
- What are the coverage levels of Gigabit-capable broadband?
- Coverage (premises passed)
- Capex (network and connection)
- Split by architecture/technology:
- FTTC/VDSL or G.fast, FTTB/VDSL or G.fast, FTTB/LAN
- FTTP (split by incumbent and alternative operator)
- Cable DOCSIS3.0 or 3.1 (note: capex is not provided for cable DOCSIS3.0 or 3.1).
Key Topics Covered:
- Worldwide trends
- The analyst's forecast that 2019 was the peak year for global FTTx capex worldwide
- FTTP will increase its dominance of the global NGA landscape during the forecast period
- FTTP and cable networks are the only viable options for meeting coverage targets for gigabit-capable broadband
- Roll-out plans in most countries in Western Europe currently miss the Gigabit Society's targets by some margin
- Much work remains in Central and Eastern Europe in order to meet the EU's Gigabit Society's targets
- The rate at which FTTP can be built out depends on the existing level of usable infrastructure, but regulation can help to speed up roll-outs
- Non-incumbent operators can also rapidly increase FTTP coverage, particularly if they have access to their own or rented infrastructure
- There are opportunities for FTTP vendors to benefit from significant coverage increases in some, but not all, large emerging markets
- Western Europe
- We forecast strong levels of investment in FTTP networks in Western Europe throughout the forecast period
- Central and Eastern Europe
- The number of non-incumbent FTTP deployments in rural areas in Central and Eastern Europe is growing, but not dramatically
- Middle East and North Africa
- Government intervention is driving an increase in fibre coverage in the Middle East and North Africa, and the focus on wholesale access in the region is increasing
- Sub-Saharan Africa
- NGA coverage in Sub-Saharan Africa is constrained by affordability, the high cost of deployment and the lack of availability of fibre backbone infrastructure
- FTTP coverage is already very high in China and the focus has shifted to upgrading to next-generation PON
- Emerging Asia-Pacific
- The number of FTTP deployments in several countries in the EMAP region increased in 2019 and this momentum will continue
- Developed Asia-Pacific
- Several drivers explain the growth in the number of next-generation PON deployments in developed Asia-Pacific
- North America
- The number of new fibre entrants in North America is far fewer than in Western Europe
- Latin America
- Investment in FTTx networks in LATAM continues to be strong, although this will slow down during the forecast period
- Forecast methodology and assumptions
- Geographical scope: forecasts are provided for 64 countries in 8 regions
- We take baseline costs for each technology and then apply several context-specific variables to determine total capexTop-level breakdown of the relative costs of FTTx technologies: basic topologies
