Forecast: FTTH to dominate fixed broadband in APAC
December 20, 2021
Fibre-to-the-Home/Building (FTTH/B) service is set to cement its position as the leading fixed broadband technology in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) market and will go on to account for 94.8 per cent of the total fixed broadband service revenue in the region by 2026, according to GlobalData, a data and analytics company.
An analysis of GlobalData’s Asia Pacific Fixed Communication Forecast Model (Q3-2021) indicates that the share of fibre lines in the total fixed broadband lines in APAC will increase from 90.7 per cent (672.2 million) in 2021 to 92.5 per cent (792 million) by 2026, driven by the growing demand for high-speed Internet services, fibre rollouts and the ongoing national broadband networks across most countries in the region.
Singapore will have the highest share of FTTH/B lines as a percentage of total fixed broadband lines in the region, almost reaching 100 per cent by 2026. Singapore will be followed by Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Malaysia with 96.6 per cent, 93 per cent, and 92.8 per cent share, respectively, in 2026.
