BETHESDA, Md. -- According to a new 10-year forecast from Dittberner Associates, Inc., the worldwide capital expenditures related to FTTx access technology will reach US$22.8 billion in 2013, from an estimated $3.7 billion in 2004.

The firm predicts that the Asia & Pacific region will be the largest market for FTTH access technology with 52.8% of the total, or 12 billion dollars. China alone will account for nearly half of the region, with 46% of the total market. According to Dr. Alain Thiney, vice president at Dittberner, “China and India will become the dominant investors in FTTx access technology within few years as they add large numbers of fixed access lines (more than 13 million per year in China, and close to 4 million per year in India), which will be using mostly fiber technology.”

The predicted relative importance of China and India in FTTx world market is a direct result of the size of their population. The forecasting model incorporates moderate teledensity increases over the next 10 years for these two countries (from 21.1 to 30 for China, and 4.5 to 7 for India).
