Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Hybrid Fiber Coaxial Market size is set to exceed USD 24 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of hybrid fiber coaxial was around USD 12 Billion. Higher cost-efficiency of hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) networks. HFC networks leverage existing coaxial cable infrastructure, which was primarily built for cable TV services. By using the existing infrastructure, service providers can avoid the substantial cost of deploying new fiber optic cables, which makes HFC a cost-effective option for network expansion and upgrades.

Furthermore, the expansion of the industry is further boosted by rising demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In 11 different countries, 56 different types of UAVs are in operation. This covers 807 drones in active operation around the world (excluding China, Russia, and Turkey). By establishing a network of HFC infrastructure in an area, UAVs can connect to the network to receive commands, transmit telemetry data, and communicate with ground control stations. This allows for real-time monitoring control and coordination of multiple drones in the airspace.

Hybrid Fiber Coaxial Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for High Internet Bandwidth– Bandwidth demands all across the world often increase by roughly 50% per year. Currently, the average household in the world receives a bandwidth of around 5 to 10 Mbps. However, it is likely to grow to 40 Mbps in the next 5 years and can take a huge leap to nearly 300 Mbps in the next 10 years. HFC networks have been widely adopted for providing high-speed internet bandwidth to users. HFC networks utilize a hybrid architecture where fiber optics cables are used as the backbone infrastructure. The fiber optic cables provide high-capacity and low-latency transmission over longer distances.
  • Increasing Exchange of Data– Every day, around 328.77 million terabytes of data are created in the world. In 2025, 181 zettabytes of data will be generated. With the proliferation of digital devices and the widespread adoption of the internet, people are consuming and generating more data than ever before. HFC networks offer the necessary bandwidth to cater to this growing data consumption.
  • Growing Foothold of IoT-Connected Devices– In 2022, worldwide IoT connections have grown by 18% to around 14 billion active IoT endpoints. Moreover, the count is expected to rise by 16% to nearly 17 billion active endpoints in 2023. HFC networks provide the necessary infrastructure to connect a large number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to the Internet. The wide coverage area of HFC networks allows for seamless connectivity, ensuring their efficient communication with cloud platforms, data centers, and other devices.


  • Interference in Signal and Noise- Coaxial cables used in HFC networks are susceptible to signal interference and noise, which can degrade the quality of the transmitted signals. Factors, such as signal leakage, electromagnetic interference, and network impairment impact the performance and reliability of HFC networks.
  • Tough competition from fiber and wireless technologies
  • Need for frequent future network upgrades

Hybrid Fiber Coaxial Market Segmentation

Component (Optical Transceiver, CMTS/CCAP, Fiber Optic Cable, Amplifier, Optical Node, Splitter, CPE)

The CMTS/CCAP segment is projected to hold 38% share of the global hybrid fiber coaxial market in the year 2035. Moreover, it is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 7% over the forecast period. With the rising demand for video streamlining, digital gaming, and online game streaming, the need for CMTS/CCAP is rising. Since, over the hybrid fiber coaxial network, the CMTS/CCAP provides much faster bandwidth in comparison to conventional cable modems. There are around 3 billion active video game players worldwide. There are predicted to be more than 3 billion players worldwide by 2024. Moreover, Music streaming platforms have 524 million subscribers, while video streaming services have nearly 2 billion.

Technology (DOCSIS 3.0 & Below and DOCSIS 3.1)

The DOCSIS 3.1 segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~46% in the year 2035. The DOCSIS 3.1 is a greater version of DOCSIS 3.0 and many service providers, such as Mediacom, Optimum, Xfinity, Cox, and Spectrum have started the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 in the HFC networks. The growing demand for high internet speed has contributed to the segment’s growth. DOCSIS 3.1 can offer download speeds up to 10Gbps, which is ten times faster than DOCSIS 3.0.
