The proportion of global FTTH / FTTP / FTTB broadband users will reach 59% by 2025
According to relevant data, the proportion of global FTTH / FTTP / FTTB broadband users will reach 59% by 2025. According to data provided by market research firm Point Topic, this development trend will be 11% higher than the current level.
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 global broadband users exceeded the 1 billion mark.
According to the number of users in the second quarter of this year, about 89% of these users are located 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 decrease from 19% to 9% during the forecast period. Although the total number of users of Fiber to the Building Group (FTTC) and VDSL and DOCSIS-based Hybrid Fiber / Coaxial Cable (HFC) should climb during the forecast period, the market share will remain relatively stable. Among them, FTTC will account for about 12% of the total connections, and HFC will account for 19%.
The emergence of 5G should have an inhibitory effect on fixed broadband applications over the forecast period. Until 5G is actually deployed, it is impossible to predict how much the market will be affected.
