GPON is a fiber optic network which provides connection from one point to multiple points. It is a fiber-to-the-premises type of network, which offers several connections through unpowered splitters and a distinct optical fiber. Optical splitters are energy efficient and they do not require power for transmission of signals. The GPON chipset market is witnessing significant growth, due to rapid changes in technologies in the FTTH/FTTB sector. The global GPON chipset market is projected to reach value of US$ 3,103.8 Mn by 2026, expanding at a significant growth rate of 6.7% during the forecast period.
Major driving factors for the global gigabit passive optical network chipset market are low cost of ownership and high returns on investment. In addition, higher bandwidth, unmatched security, and greater reliability offered by GPON chipsets are likely to drive the GPON chipset market, especially in India, during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing digitization and mass adoption of smart and connected digital devices by businesses, governments, and consumers are other factors expected to fuel the market in the next few years. However, limited range capability of GPON chipsets is acting as a hurdle in the adoption of GPON chipsets across the world.
The GPON chipset market has been segmented based on technology, equipment, end-use industry, and geography. Based on technology, the market has been divided into 2.5G-GPON, 10G-GPON, XGS-PON, and NG-PON2. In 2017, the 2.5G-GPON segment accounted for the maximum market share. However, the NG-PON2 segment is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period, owing to numerous advantages offered by this technology such as multi-channel compatibility, flexibility, and improved performance compared to its counterparts.
