This IDC study analyzes and forecasts the development trends in the FTTx service market and the scale of the fiber network device market in China, based on research on and analysis of China's broadband market environment, operators' actions, FTTx service development status and investment, and the broadband service macroplans of the three major China telecom operators in 2011.

The rapid prevalence of high-bandwidth applications, such as IPTV, high-resolution video and online game, results in exponential growth of network traffic to China telecom operators. The fact that xDSL as a broadband access could not meet the market needs and that SARFT companies intensified their investment in broadband services by leveraging the triple-play business opportunity drives China telecom operators to upgrade broadband network capacity and capability urgently, in order to both support their service development needs and battle against competitors. Since 2011, China telecom operators have been significantly increasing their investment in FTTx; as a result, both their network coverage and number of subscribers have achieved rapid growth.

"As the FTTx industry further matures and the costs of network construction and service further decline, the FTTx service market in China will enter a phase of large-scale development in the next five years. Both the investment scale and the number of new subscribers will be far higher than that in the past five years, which will provide great opportunity for FTTx device suppliers, fiber cable manufacturers, systems integrators, and other industry participants," says Jason Shen, senior analyst, Telecom and Services, IDC China.
