The India passive optical network equipment market is highly lucrative and fragmented with the presence of a large number of multinational companies, states Transparency Market Research (TMR) in a research report. To establish a leading position in the market, the participants are focusing on research and development activities for the purpose of developing advanced passive optical network equipment. Some of the leading companies in the market are Verizon Communications Inc., Motorola Solutions, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Huawei Technologies Comp. Ltd., Hitachi Communication Technologies Inc., Freescale Semiconductors Inc., Ericsson Inc., Calix Inc., Broadcom Corporation Inc., Adtran Inc., and Alphion India Pvt. Ltd.
The market for passive optical network equipment in India is expected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. It has been projected that the market will rise to a valuation of US$1,175.5 mn by the end of 2020.
GPON Likely to Surpass EPON by 2020
The passive optical network equipment market in India is segmented into ethernet passive optical network (EPON) and gigabit passive optical network (GPON). In terms of both volume and revenue, ethernet passive optical network emerged dominant in 2013 with the leading share in the market. However, gigabit passive optical network is expected to surpass its counterpart to gain the leading position by the end of 2020. According to a TMR analyst, “The growth of the market of gigabit passive optical network in India can be attributed to the low power consumption and high bandwidth allocation of GPON.” These features have enabled it to prove its superiority as compared to EPON. The additional advantages provided by the GPON equipment are a few active switching devices employed in the network and high-end security.
The gigabit passive optical network market has been further classified into optical line terminal and optical network terminal. Both by volume and revenue, optical network terminal contributed the maximum revenue to the market of passive optical network equipment in India. Optical network terminals are components which are located at the end of the subscribers, thus the number of optical network terminal is equal to that of the subscribers. The demand for optical line terminal and optical network terminal has intensified due to the advanced and efficient networking technology of gigabit passive optical network.
Extensive Research to Aid in Development of Advanced Equipment
In India, the primary driving forces of the passive optical network equipment market are the low ownership costs and extensive return on investments. Additionally, the enhanced reliability, high bandwidth, and unmatched security are further expected to propel the adoption of passive optical network equipment in India. Furthermore, scalability, environment-friendly solutions, and simplified and easy network operations are also expected to bode well for the growth of the market in the country. It has been noted that extremely high initial cost of set up along with a high cost of component at the operator’s interface and extensively high R&D costs are likely to discourage mid and small-sized firms and start-ups to enter the market.
However, the companies operating in the market can gain from the opportunities that are likely to arise from the growing demand for enhanced bandwidth passive optical network equipment in India. The market is further expected to be benefited by the fact that the optical fibers employed in passive optical network are made of dielectric material and as a result of this, it does not let electromagnetic radiations pass through.
