The global GPON equipment market size reached US$ 17.4 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 40.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 15.1% during 2023-2028.

Gigabit passive optical networks (GPON) equipment is a point-to-multipoint access network that is used to connect the optical distribution network (ODN). It consists of a splitter, optical line terminals (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU). The OLT injects the photons through the central office to a fiber-optic cable manufactured of plastic and glass, whereas the splitter divides the single signal from the central office into numerous signals. GPON equipment assists in low maintenance requirements, easier network management, enhancing security, speed and stability, and reducing the cost of physical equipment in the fiber distribution network. As compared to ethernet passive optical network (EPON), GPON can be used for upstream and downstream data as they offer better bandwidth. As a result, it finds extensive application across the healthcare, information technology (IT) and energy industries.

GPON Equipment Market Trends:
The availability of easy internet connectivity across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market growth. GPON technologies are widely adopted in high internet-driven applications, such as high-definition television (HDTV), Distributed antenna systems (DAS) and security systems. In line with this, the proliferation of smartphones and the increasing number of connected devices with higher bandwidth are favoring the market growth. Moreover, various technological advancements, such as the introduction of a fifth generation (5G) network, fiber to the home (FTTH) and fiber to the premises (FTTP) that provide network immunity against electromagnetic interfering and high-speed data to the consumers, are providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the increasing product demand in the healthcare industry to support mission-critical networks and access high-resolution images and patient medical information is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including the development of smart cities and the rising demand for mobile backhaul systems, are anticipated to drive the market further toward growth.
