“One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Increase in the Number of FTTH Homes and Subscribers,” says a senior analyst for the Industrials industry at Technavio.

The increase in the number of FTTH homes and subscribers is the key factor driving market growth. A higher number of customers are opting for fiber optic connections to leverage broadband services. This reduces the requirements for customer premises equipment (CPE) and distribution point unit (DPU). Moreover, the increasing demand for faster Internet has encouraged various companies to activate the transition to FTTH, which enables high-speed internet access with faster voice and video services. Therefore, the increasing need for faster Internet will boost the demand for fiber optics over the next few years. Thus, the increase in the number of FTTH homes and subscribers will drive the fiber optics market growth during the forecast period.

As the markets recover Technavio expects the fiber optics market size to grow by USD 2.44 billion during the period 2020-2024.
