Fixed Broadband Market Trends and Opportunities in Asia-Pacific - 2020,’ a new Telecom Insider Report by the publisher, provides an executive-level overview of the fixed broadband market in Asia-Pacific. It delivers quantitative and qualitative insights into the fixed broadband market, analyzing key trends and growth drivers in the region.

The Asia-Pacific region has a modest fixed broadband penetration, but is host to the largest fixed broadband market, China, and the market with the most potential for fixed broadband development, India. There is a markedly higher fixed broadband penetration in developed Asia-Pacific, such as Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. Most countries in emerging Asia-Pacific are focusing on bridging the digital divide between urban and rural areas by financing backbone and rural networks, while more developed countries are building subsea cables to boost the supply of international capacity. Increased competition is expected in the fixed broadband market due to open access and wholesale agreements (usually under a national broadband network with a structural separation framework), new fixed line entrants, the resurgence of 4G/5G fixed wireless access technology and the potential emergence of satellite broadband Internet as an alternative.

  • Section 3: Fixed Broadband Subscription Trends: Provides analysis, historical figures, and forecasts of fixed broadband subscriptions and usage trends in the region as well as their growth drivers.
  • Section 4: Fixed Broadband Revenue Trends: Examines changes in the breakdown of overall revenue and ARPU over 2020-2025. - Section 5: Key findings: A summary of key findings and growth opportunities for the Asia-Pacific fixed broadband market.

  • Fixed broadband lines penetration of the population will reach 16.1% in 2020, and will grow to 20.8% by 2025.
  • APAC’s fixed Internet users will record significant growth, expanding to 2.6 billion Internet users by 2025.
  • FTTH/B will account for 90.3% of total fixed broadband lines in 2025. This is driven by fiber rollouts, national broadband networks, fiber wholesale and sharing deals, and the increased availability of fiber packages to support the demand for higher speeds and bandwidth-hungry applications.
  • In Asia-Pacific, COVID-19 has made teleworking the norm and increased the consumption of digital media, resulting in a surge in residential data traffic.
  • Most networks have been generally been able to cope with the increased demand due to prior infrastructure investments, but the pandemic has reemphasised the importance of fixed networks in the digital age, prompting increased investments into telecom infrastructure across Asia-Pacific.
