Passive Optical LAN (POL) Market to Cross US$ 295 Bn by 2031, TMR Study

ALBANY, N.Y., March 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Analysts at TMR project the passive optical LAN (POL) market to expand at a CAGR of 23.6% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2031. The exponential growth of the telecom industry in the past decade expanded growth prospects of the POL market. Expanded services of telecom companies for voice, data, video, and wireless for several applications that require higher bandwidth fuels the demand for passive optical LAN. POL is a new way to structure telecommunications network that are replacing copper-based infrastructures that are no longer efficient for high bandwidth applications.

The substantial rise in the demand for high bandwidth applications such as HDTV, video on demand, 3-D TV, IPTV, and gaming, among others, leading to the increasing deployment of fiber to home (FTTH) networks is creating ample opportunities in passive optical LAN market.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to continue to hold a key share of the POL market in the upcoming years. Factors such as exponential rise in demand for high network bandwidth for newer applications, adoption of Internet of Things, and growing popularity of cloud-based services are fueling the growth of POL market in the region. Technological advancement, expansion of the fiber optic network, and development of systems administration in China and India contribute immensely to the growth of POL market in the region.

Passive Optical LAN Market – Key Findings of Report

  • Passive optical LAN is derived from passive optical network (PON) with an attractive, durable LAN architecture. Passive optical LAN outperforms traditional Ethernet LAN in terms of capacity, reliability, security, footprint, and reduces operating costs.
  • Environment friendliness and green profile of POL are significant for its rapid deployment. Passive optical LAN does not require power, dissipates very less amount of heat, and improves performance. POL solutions use optical splitters instead of workgroup switches, and thus can be mounted in electrical closets to reduce ceiling space.
  • Design framework of POL uses less cable since single-mode fiber can support multiple devices. There is no theoretical limit to bandwidth using single-mode POL fiber, and the bandwidth constraint over distance is virtually infinite using splitters.
  • Space saving for network infrastructure is a key advantage of POL, as it is direct to the user and does not require a telecommunications room
  • Passive optical LAN works in favor of green sustainability initiatives by reduced cabling diameter, weight, and length to result in less volume of plastics and PVC that is used
  • POL distribution network can eliminate electronic devices and maintenance to extend up to 12 miles, where traditional active copper-based LAN could reach only 300 feet.
  • Consumer electronics and automobile industries are two key end users of passive optical LAN solutions
