1Q13 global DSL, PON and FTTH equipment revenue declined 7% compared with 4Q12, down to $ 1.5 billion; although its global sales of EPON and GPON equipment respectively dropped 5% and 4%, Huawei still maintaining its leader position in global broadband aggregation equipment market (world market share of 33%).
FiberStore news, on June 6th, 2013, Infonetics Research principal analyst Jeff Heynen said, broadband aggregation equipment market got a poor start this year, although the performance of various regions and different technical aspects is different, but the overall revenue began a continuous decline from the first quarter of last year.
“EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) suffered a heavy blow, the region DSL, PON and FTTH equipment sales in this region declined by 27% compared with last quarter, ending the growth of previous three consecutive quarters. The EPON sales in the Chinese market have fallen sharply, but due to China Telecom and China Unicom continuing deploy FTTH GPON-based to provide 20M access services, GPON equipment sales in the region has achieved eight consecutive quarters of growth. Meanwhile, as operators increase investment to resist the competition of DOCSIS 3.0 technology, the North American market contrarian, successfully avoided a quarter of weakness as its previous peculiar”, said Heynen.
The highlights of broadband aggregation equipment market in first quarter of 2013
1Q13 global DSL, PON and FTTH equipment revenue declined 7% compared with 4Q12, down to $ 1.5 billion;
Due to seasonal and Russia, the Middle East carriers initial GPON equipment purchase tide coming to an end, and PON equipment sales in EMEA fell sharply by 50% after achieved double-digit growth in two consecutive quarters;
Despite its global EPON and GPON equipment sales respectively appeared 5% and 4% decline, Huawei maintains its leader position in revenue of global broadband aggregation equipment market (accounting for 33% market share);
