Ovum is forecasting a strong FTTx PON optical component (OC) market due to next-gen PON upgrades and FTTx network builds in general.


  • Network upgrades to 10G PON are underway, with additional upgrades planned throughout the forecast period. Consequently, Ovum's latest OC PON market forecast reflects a major revenue increase from 2016 given the higher costs of 10G PON and Combo PON optics compared with 1G EPON and 2.5G GPON optics.

  • Includes GPON, XG-PON1, XGS-PON, Combo PON, NG-PON2, 25G/50G GPON, EPON, EPON (10/1), EPON (10/10), and 25G/50G EPON.
  • Combo PON is a new category in the forecast.
