Broadband CPE Market Up 3 Percent from a Year Ago in 1Q15, G.fast and VDSL Replacing ADSL
Jul 10, 2015
Campbell, CALIFORNIA (July 10, 2015)—Worldwide broadband CPE revenue dropped to $2.8 billion in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15), decreasing 2 percent sequentially, while unit shipments stayed flat at 54 million as service providers continued to expand their fixed broadband service capabilities in the highly-competitive customer premises equipment market, according to IHS (NYSE: IHS).
“Overall, the CPE market remains strong, with revenue up 3 percent year-over-year. We expect both DOCSIS 3.1 and G.fast to help add momentum to the cable and DSL CPE market segments and FTTH to continue at its current pace, driven by deployments in China, North America and EMEA,” said Jeff Heynen, research director for broadband access and pay TV at IHS.
MORE BROADBAND MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- On a year-over-year basis, global broadband CPE unit shipments were up 9 percent in 1Q15 as operator investments in premium CPE continued
- Looking at the product segments, the top performers in 1Q15 were EPON and fixed LTE, which both saw double-digit percentage increases in unit shipments
- Regional pockets of growth include EPON ONTs and video gateways for cable operators in North America, GPON ONTs in Europe and VDSL CPE in Latin America
