in my view, these 3-4 factors were quite significant

1. the decline of the Arabs, who in fact, the Ottoman ('Utmanli')  Turks succeeded.

2. Unified and centralized system of military command that helped the Turks in their earliest campaigns in East and West

3. Divisions betwen the Christian kingdoms of Europe, especially between the Roman and Greek Orthodox churches, which allowed the Ottomans easier access into europe and also led to the fall of Constantinople in 1453.

4. Their early dynamism and energy, which allowed for maximum expansion before they too in turn, became 'sick' and fell into a long decline.

I hope these are useful

Like the Pax Romana, the Pax Ottomana was a period of growth and prosperity, and basically PEACE. This peace increased the population and allowed the government to maintain security. It began with the conquest of Constantinople.
