According to relevant data, the proportion of global FTTH/FTTP/FTTB broadband users will reach 59% in 2025. And from the data provided by market research firm Point Topic, this trend will be 11% higher than current levels.
Point Topic predicts that there will be 1.2 billion fixed broadband subscribers worldwide by the end of 2025. In the third quarter of this year, the total number of broadband users worldwide exceeded 1 billion.
According to the number of users in the second quarter of this year, there are about 89% of these users in the top 30 markets worldwide. In these markets, FTTH and related technologies will mainly grab market share from xDSL, and the xDSL market share will fall from 19% to 9% during the forecast period. While the total number of users in fiber-to-the-building (FTTC) , VDSL and hybrid fiber/coax based on DOCSIS should climb during the forecast period, market share will remain relatively stable. Among them, FTTC will account for about 12% of the total number of connections, while HFC will account for 19%.
The emergence of 5G should have an inhibitory effect on fixed broadband applications during the forecast period. Before the actual deployment of 5G, it is impossible to predict how much the market will be affected.
