Asia-Pacific PON equipment market: 32% CAGR between 2012-2016

Press Release   •   Feb 26, 2013 10:45 GMT

The Passive Optical Network Equipment market in the APAC region is to grow at a CAGR of 32.4 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing growth of PON equipment in China. The Passive Optical Network Equipment market in the APAC region has also been witnessing the evolution of optical network architecture. However, the limited infrastructure for fiber-optic networks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Increasing consolidation of the Semiconductor industry has intensified the competition in the market. In recent years, the industry has witnessed several mergers and acquisitions along with forward and backward integration of companies. Network equipment companies, integrated circuit (IC) chip manufacturers, and telecom companies are entering into strategic alliances, and this trend is expected to continue for the next few years. Moreover, vendors from developed countries are now focusing on Asian countries to increase their global market share. This is not only due to saturation of the market in developed countries but also due to the huge potential which is left untapped in the APAC region market.

The technology adoption in developing Asian countries is one of the major drivers in the Passive Optical Network Equipment market in the APAC Region. The growth of the Passive Optical Network Equipment market in Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea have saturated, due to high optical deployment in previous years. However, the vendors in various other Asian countries such as China and India are adopting passive optical network solutions for their fiber-optic infrastructure at a rapid pace, ensuring healthy future growth of the Passive Optical Network Equipment Market in the APAC Region.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Sumitomo Electric Networks Inc., and ZTE Corp. The other vendors mentioned in the report are Calix Network Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Freescale Semiconductor Inc., PMC-Sierra Inc., Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Tellabs Inc., and UTStarcom Inc.
