With rising competition already a characteristic of the Indian networking market, network providers are looking at ways to provide the best speed and connectivity options to the Indian consumer. The telecom industry, the forerunner of most networking modules, has made a rapid switch from the traditional coaxial cable and digital subscriber line connections structure to more effective fiber optic connectivity methodologies. Fiber optics are considered to be the future of telecom and networking and methodologies such as Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or Fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) are becoming the gold standard for networking these days.


Passive optical network (PON) ensures connectivity from one access point to multiple end users. It is a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network and therefore rise in the number of FTTH subscribers coupled with increasing demand for energy conservation are bolstering the growth of PON equipment market in India. In addition, high return on investments, low cost of ownership, optimized connectivity, simplified network operations and advanced security are the other major factors driving the PON equipment market. The passive optical network is categorized into two types in terms of its structure – Gigabit passive optical network (GPON) and Ethernet passive optical network (EPON).

India passive optical network equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020 to reach a market size of 38.3 million units by 2020. In 2013, volume of the market was 7.1 million units.

India Passive Optical Network (PON) Equipment Market: By Structure

> Gigabit passive optical network (GPON) Equipment
> Ethernet passive optical network (EPON) Equipment

Both by revenue and volume, EPON was the largest contributor in Indian PON market in 2013, accounting for a market share of 51.3% and 63.6% respectively....
