Passive Optical LAN (POL) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020

Global passive optical LAN (POL) market was valued at USD 9.89 billion in 2013, growing at a CAGR of 19.2% from 2014 to 2020. Passive optical LAN (POL) is a Layer-2 transport medium, built with passive optical network (PON) technology, which provides converged data, video, and voice services at gigabit speeds over a single strand of fiber to the user’s location. These solutions make use of a number of passive optical components. Majority of these components including optical cables, optical couplers, optical power splitters, optical encoders, patch cords and pigtails, optical connectors, optical amplifiers, optical transceivers, fixed and variable optical attenuators, optical circulators, wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers, and optical filters can now be found in use in FTTH/FTTD applications and data networks. These components also find use in applications such as fiber in the loop (FITL), interoffice, loop feeder, hybrid fiber-coaxial cable (HFC), synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) systems and synchronous optical network (SONET).

 

Components share in the global passive optical LAN market was dominated by the wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers in 2013. The patch cords and pigtails market followed the former accounting for over 11% of the global market components share owing to high usage in ultra-high capacity networks. The fixed and variable optical attenuators and optical amplifiers markets were analyzed to grow at an above average CAGR following the rising demand for high bandwidths and the growth in fiber optic technologies, wherein these components are primarily used.

 

The global POL market applications share was dominated by the SDH application segment. SONET application segment closely followed the SDH application segment. While SDH equipment is accepted globally, SONET equipment is majorly used in North America. Thus, both the application segments are expected to continue their dominance over the next six years, owing to their ability to transfer multiple digital bit streams over optical fiber using lasers or LED’s.

 

The rising fiber deployments as well as heavy investments on research infrastructure across the Asia Pacific and RoW regions are propelling the global POL market. In addition, growth in networking technologies across both the regions is further bolstering the passive optical LAN (POL) market. Owing to the above mentioned reasons, the Asia Pacific region is expected to continue its dominance, followed by the North American and the European regions in the global POL market.

Passive optical LAN (POL) is a Layer-2 transport medium, built with passive optical network (PON) technology, which provides converged data, video, and voice services at gigabit speeds over a single strand of fiber to the user’s location. These solutions make use of a number of passive optical components. Majority of these components including optical cables, optical couplers, optical power splitters, optical encoders, patch cords and pigtails, optical connectors, optical amplifiers, optical transceivers, fixed and variable optical attenuators, optical circulators, wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers, and optical filters can now be found in use in FTTH applications and current data networks. These components also find use in applications such as fiber in the loop (FITL), interoffice, loop feeder, hybrid fiber-coaxial cable (HFC), synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) systems and synchronous optical network (SONET).

 

Passive optical local area network (POL) solutions are more environment-friendly than the traditional copper-based Ethernet local area network. Instead of using workgroup switches, the POL solution uses optical splitters. By eliminating the workgroup switches, it adheres to HVAC standards, thereby eradicating the usage of thousands of KW energy and acting as a more cost-effective option. Furthermore, since there is no need for rack-mounted switches, usage of non-renewable electrical equipment is minimized and power consumption reduced.

 

Passive optical LAN (POL) helps in saving the total cost of ownership (TCO) by a huge amount, as the cost of installation of the equipment is low. In addition, the highly-efficient equipment promises high return on investments. This low cost of ownership is achieved with POL using a highly-centralized distribution network, which is passive in nature. With the savings in both capital and operating expenditure, POL offers considerable saving in the total cost of ownership. In traditional networks, network upgradation and patches lead to a large amount of operational expenditure. However, in POL, network upgradation is much easier, as it uses the existing fiber optic cable and only the electronics are to be replaced, rather than replacing the whole infrastructure, which helps to save 75% of the expenditure.
