The Broadband Market In Asia Is Expected Grow Up To $605.8 Million In 2011.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "Broadband Access Overview - A Look into BRAS Deployment in Asia Pacific" to their offering.

Increasing Demand for High-speed Internet Access Drives Exponential Growth in the Asia Pacific Broadband Remote Access Server Market

The Asia Pacific broadband remote access server (BRAS) market is experiencing healthy growth due to swelling broadband subscriber growth, service providers' efforts to deliver differentiated products, and rising demand for higher-speed Internet access. Although, digital subscriber lines (xDSL) remain the most popular type of broadband access, fiber to the home (FTTX) subscription is catching up in countries such as Japan and South Korea and is expected to replace DSL subscription as the access technology of choice in future. These factors have greatly aided the rollout of BRAS equipment and functionality by service providers across the region and are likely to help the market grow up to $605.8 million in 2011.

This Frost & Sullivan research service provides an overview of the Asia Pacific BRAS market and key insight on market size by region. This study analyses market share of BRAS vendors on each country level. The study also provides broadband subscriber base by region and access technology segments as well as market share analysis of broadband access service providers. xDSL, cable TV (CATV), FTTX, fixed wireless access (FWA), and integrated services digital network (ISDN) are the access technology considered in this study.

Broadband Access Set to Expand Tremendously in Under-developed Markets

The current low penetration rates offer immense growth opportunities in the Asia Pacific broadband access market until 2009. "In 2004, there were more than 70 million broadband subscribers in Asia Pacific, with DSL being capturing for more than half of that subscriber base," says the analyst of this research service. Once last mile access issues are sorted out, service providers can hope to experience more robust growth.

Flat rate and unlimited access pricing plans by service providers and narrowing tariff-differentials for dial-up and broadband services are expected to boost broadband uptake. "The availability of an extended list of content has further accelerated growth," notes the analyst. "Governments' initiatives and support are further catalysts for the growth of the broadband industry in Asia Pacific."
