The FTTx conversion: worldwide trends and forecasts 2019–2025

This report analyses and forecasts conversion (premises with active connections as a percentage of premises passed) for FTTx architecture and technologies during 2019–2025.

Cable broadband players are already under pressure in many European countries and the competitive threat posed by alternative technologies is set to grow.

KEY METRICS COVERED IN THIS REPORT

  • Conversion rates (that is, premises with active connections as a percentage of premises passed)
  • Connection numbers
  • Connection rate of premises passed

Split by architecture/technology:

  • FTTC/VDSL or G.fast
  • FTTB/VDSL or G.fast
  • FTTB/LAN
  • FTTP (split by incumbent and alternative operator)
  • Cable DOCSIS3.0 or 3.1

GEOGRAPHICAL COVERAGE

The report and accompanying data annex provide forecasts for 8 regions and 64 individual countries.


 

 

7.Worldwide trends
NGA conversion rates will only grow slightly during the forecast period, but NGA subscriber numbers will increase significantly
Cable broadband players are facing increasing pressure from FTTP roll-outs in many European countries
Growth in the number of cable broadband subscribers will be constrained by FTTP roll-outs
Non-incumbent FTTP take-up rates in Western Europe are currently highly variable, but will start to converge during the forecast period
Challenger infrastructure roll-outs will affect FTTP conversion in VDSL-dominated markets
Most operators in developed markets still have very few gigabit subscribers and such speeds are not common in entry-level FTTP tiers
The migration to gigabit FTTP speeds will take many years in most countries if there are no retail price incentives or free speed upgrades
There is still significant potential for growth in the number of NGA connections in emerging markets
Western Europe
NGA conversion rates will grow strongly in Western Europe during the forecast period
Central and Eastern Europe
NGA conversion rates will grow steadily, but unspectacularly, in CEE during the forecast period
Middle East and North Africa
NGA conversion rates are growing in MENA, but they remain constrained by a diverse set of factors

 

22.Sub-Saharan Africa
It is somewhat surprising that there have not been more-extensive roll-outs in Sub-Saharan Africa given the high NGA conversion rate
China
There is now very little potential for growth in fibre conversion rates in China
Rest of emerging Asia–Pacific
The overall NGA conversion rate in the rest of EMAP will be 44% at the end of 2025, which reflects the ongoing opportunities for growth in the fixed broadband segment
Developed Asia–Pacific
The threat of wireless substitution is intensifying in a number of countries in DVAP
North America
We forecast that there will be a smaller decline in the number of NGA subscribers in North America than previously anticipated
Latin America
Incumbent copper decommissioning plans have caused NGA conversion rates to increase significantly
Forecast methodology and assumptions
Geographical scope: forecasts are provided for 64 countries in 8 regions
