The GPON market growth is attributed to growing feature-rich applications and websites that require high-speed internet access. The increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications has forced internet service providers to implement gigabit fiber technology. The adoption of smartphones and a huge penetration of internet-driven applications, such as video on demand and HDTV, have generated the need to adopt next-generation GPON technologies that deliver much higher bandwidth. This factor has become vital in supporting the burgeoning data traffic.

The GPON market has received a strong impetus amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The market acceleration in GPON space has been substantial as GPON vendors are focusing on making significant investments to expand fiber-optic networks in the region. For instance, in April 2020, Valley Fiber Limited, a Canadian telco, reported majority investments from DIF Capital Partners. The investments furthered the company’s fiber-to-the-business and fiber-to-the-home networks in Canada. Significant investments in fiber-optic network expansion are expected to support the acceptance of GPON equipment.

The UK next-generation PON 2 (NG-PON2) segment is projected to witness 15% growth rate through 2028. NG-PON2 (ITU-T G.989) utilizes multiple wavelengths and can deliver 40 Gbps with 80 Gbps in the future on a single fiber. The technology aids the convergence of multiple service networks onto a single Optical Distribution Network (ODN).

The key difference between XGS-PON and NG-PON is the multiple wavelengths supported by NG-PON2. In UK CSPs, this can eliminate physical constraints within an access network. NG-PON2 utilizes TWDM and supports a minimum of four wavelengths on each fiber.
