In early 2015, G.fast chips startup Sckipio Technologies displayed G.fast that carried speed above 100 megabits for a length of nearly 500 meters. In the first steps of the technology, local loops smaller than 250 meters delivering performance targets in the range 150 Mbit/s to 1 Gbit/s had been developed. This demonstrates the progress the G.fast chips market has achieved in a relatively short period.
WinterGreen Research analyzes the global G.fast chips market to be valued at US$2.9 billion by 2020, growing from US$31 million in 2014.
Broadband Internet, which is poised to be used by most if not all of the world’s population by 2025, is leading expansion of the digital broadband technologies such as FTTH, G.fast, DSL, and other digital lines. Broadband networks, starting from the operator’s switching equipment right through the user, are spread on a combination of optical infrastructure for the major part of the distribution, and copper infrastructure for the last few meters from the distribution box to the user.
While fiber and FTTH are advanced technologies, they have limitations of use at the end of the network and are too expensive for home use. DSL is a viable alternative, but copper-based broadband communication technologies, such as G.fast technologies, promise to come good in the long run.
G.fast makes use of copper infrastructure already present across the telecommunication network. Preexisting copper infrastructure is worth trillions and is thus the basis for existing and new wireless systems expanding in the market.
Copper-based broadband technologies dominate the broadband systems scenario worldwide. It is dominant in the local loop and thus creates demand for systems that can support high-speed communication signals that can be transported over copper cables.

Here’s a look into what makes the G.fast chips market compelling for investors:
· G.fast makes use of the otherwise-obsolete copper infrastructure to add value to the existing investment.
· G.fast networks benefit from broadband available for consumers and are adaptable to support broadband networks for consumers, cell tower communications, and data centers.
· Technical innovations and rapid evolution of technology platforms hold promising avenues for the global G.fast chips market.
· Being up to 10 times more economical than DSL chips, and due to the faster maturity of the technology than the suppliers’ expectation, the G.fast chips market is poised for fast adoption.
· High use of broadband in practically every industry segment lucrative for the increasingly diversified G.fast chips market.
· South Korea dominates global broadband consumption, in terms of both average bandwidth (24.6 megabits) and the proportion of the total population utilizing a broadband connection.
· Smaller regions such as the Philippines and developing regions such as India with large rural areas currently have issues regarding the widespread availability of high-speed broadband, but hold immense potential for the future.
Although G.fast chips are a futuristic technology, there is need for development of the basic technology and also need of improvement in vectoring at the high end. Manufacturers of G.fast chips also have to combat the threat of erosion of their market opportunity from DSL, particularly at the low end of the market.
