Global G.Fast Chipset Market Size, Trends, and Analysis - Forecasts To 2026 By Deployment Type (CPE, DPU), By End-User (Residential, Enterprise/commercial), By Copper Line Length (Shorter than 100 Meters, 100 meters–150 meters, 150 meters–200 meters, 200 meters–250 meters, longer than 250 meters), By Region (North America, Asia Pacific, CSA, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa); End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis & Competitor Analysis
G.fast is a DSL (digital subscriber line) protocol for local loops greater than 500 meters, with output goals from 150 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s. In 2014, the first G.fast chipset was launched, and 2015 saw the launch of commercial hardware. The implementation of this chipset began in 2016. G.fast chipsets were originally developed for smaller loops ranges [250 meters]. Sckipio showed that G.fast delivered around 500 meters over 100 Mb/s in early 2015. The G.fast chipset technology includes vectoring, duplex, modulation, and channel coding.
The worldwide demand for G.fast chipsets is largely driven by the growing impact of the national broadband plan. To draw users from around the world, the national broadband network supports diverse broadband plans. It allows the government to develop a plan and vision of how technology is going to help their nation move forward with the changing complexities of technology. Broadband penetration has shown a stronger influence on GDP growth and has also impacted lives in countless ways. Over the entire forecast timeframe, growing competition among broadband service providers is also serving as a major factor driving the global market. The growing need for ultrafast broadband networks is another reason driving the need for the global market for G.fast chipsets. It allows broadband service providers to offer super-speed internet services with advancements in technology. Busy lives demand superfast broadband networks that are responsible for growing the G.fast chipsets market.
The limited application of gigabit rates along with technological difficulty in reverse power feeding (RPF) is expected to serve as an obstacle to the growth of the G.fast chipset industry.
Based on deployment analysis, the market is considered into DPU and CPE. A significant proportion of multi-story residential apartments are the primary users for CPE-based deployment type. This type is majorly used in Tier 1 cities of developing countries. The high-speed G.fast-based broadband is preferred for long-distance DPU deployment globally. The CPE-based deployment is widely preferred compared to DPU, because they are cost effective. among end users. The implementation of MDU-based CPEs provides relatively lower costs over its equivalents for equipment and servicing.
Residential and commercial are the main end-users considered. The residential market is projected to hold a greater share of the market for G.fast chipsets. The development of the residential segment is primarily due to the rising adoption of 4K TVs in advanced economies by middle-class residential users. Also, a complex mix of integrated technologies such as gaming consoles, tablets, smartphones, internet video consoles, laptops, and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices are often used by residential clients. On the other hand, video streaming services remain linked to slow-change set-top boxes linked to TV sets. The growth in network utilization along with growth for high bandwidth from consumers are boosting the segment growth.
Based on the length of the copper line, the market is divided into 100 meters to 150 meters, 150 to 200 meters, 200 to 250 meters, and > 250 meters.
Over the projected timeframe, the demand for copper-line lengths longer than 250 meters is anticipated to record the highest CAGR. It is predicted that the expected improvement in the port density of the G.fast chipset would push the rollout of G.fast over longer cooper loops. Also, the expected usage of current street DSL cabinets in Europe by broadband service providers is anticipated to bring substantial growth prospects shortly for the implementation of G.fast technologies over longer copper-line lengths.
The biggest market share is predicted to be accounted for by North America during the projected timeframe. The existence of G.fast device manufacturers in this area contributes greatly to the demand for G.fast chipsets. Factors such as favorable government policy to fulfill national broadband plans, competition among major service providers, and higher G.fast technology speed over shorter copper distances are helping to quickly expand the G.fast chipset market in North America and Europe. Besides, the substantial presence of MDUs in North America provides the demand for G.fast chipsets with major opportunities.
Asia Pacific region also plays a prominent role in the global market between 2021-2026. However, Latin America will witness modest growth. Whereas, in the coming years, the Middle East and Africa will report slower growth.
Marvell Technology Group Ltd, Sckipio Technologies SI Ltd., MediaTek, Inc., Qualcomm, Inc, Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd, BT Group plc, CenturyLink, Inc, Broadcom Ltd. (US), Swisscom AG, and Metanoia Communications, Inc among others are the prominent players competing in the Market.
Please note: This is not an exhaustive list of companies profiled in the report.
In May 2016, Qualcomm Technology, Inc., launched a new GigaDSL chip namely QCO5700 for (MDU) networks and the QCM5720 for (CPE) networks. It is expected that the latest chips would provide broadband of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) over existing telephone lines.
Sckipio Technologies SI Ltd. (Israel) has partnered with distributors and investors in the emerging territories of the APAC region. Sckipio Technologies SI Ltd. has been collaborating with 30 manufacturers of broadband equipment worldwide since October 2016.
