Global Broadband CPE Market Highlights

The worldwide broadband CPE market totaled $4.9 billion in 2005, up 123 percent from 2004, and units grew 64 percent to 115 million as enterprises increasingly turned to broadband for their network connectivity needs and service providers enticed customers with voice, data, and video service bundles, says Infonetics Research in its latest Broadband CPE report. Annual revenue is forecast to grow to $6.5 billion by 2009.

EMTAs and ADSL IADs had a phenomenal fourth quarter on the heels of record third quarter sales, with worldwide EMTA revenue growing 31 percent from 3Q05 to $143.9 million in 4Q05, and worldwide ADSL IAD revenue growing 42 percent from 3Q05 to $95.7 million in 4Q05.

"The healthy growth of ADSL IADs and EMTAs this quarter points to the increasing penetration of broadband voice among DSL and cable broadband subscribers," said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst at Infonetics Research. "The consolidation of multiple capabilities into CPE that ensures the delivery of more revenue-generating services while simplifying the subscriber's desktop and, ultimately, living room, is in full swing."
