The development of 5G technology is expected to be get completed by 2020, and the commercialization of 5G related services would commence by 2021. The total number of subscriptions for 5G technology is expected to reach 89.0 Million by 2022. The objective of the report is to provide a detailed analysis of the 5G technology market and its impact on communication and IoT market based on applications and on different geographical regions; strategically analyze the growth trends, future prospects; R&D spending and trail investments; and contribution of the government initiatives for the deployment of 5G technology by 2020.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the global subscriptions for 5G technology and its predecessor technology 2G, 3G, and LTE begins with capturing data on key vendor subscription revenues through secondary sources such as 5G PPP, 3G PP, ITU telecom, and company’s annual reports among others. The vendor offerings have also been taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure has been employed to arrive at the global number of subscriptions for 5G technology from the subscription revenue of the key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and subsegments which then have been verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key industry people CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives.  The market breakdown and data triangulation procedures have been employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments.

The figure below shows the breakdown of primaries conducted during the research study on the basis of company, designation, and region.

The 5G technology is expected to get deployed by 2020. The total number of subscriptions for 5G technology is expected to reach 89.0 Million by 2022. The continuous increase in the number of IoT-connected devices is an opportunity for the 5G technology. To provide high bandwidth to several use cases, the 5G technology is expected to operate at higher frequency bands, leading to the adoption of small cells network concept. However, the multi-cell interference is one of the challenges in ultra-dense small-cell network, which the 5G infrastructure is still dealing with.

This report covers the 5G technology market and its impact on communication and Internet of Things (IoT) market on the basis of applications and geography. The deployment of 5G would bring new network capabilities and use cases. With increased network capacity of up to 1,000 times more than its predecessor technology would open new service capabilities for the applications such as autonomous driving, ultra-high-definition and 4K video streaming. More reliable M2M communication traffic would increase in industries such as automotive, industrial automation as well as in smart cities. The enhanced mobile broadband would address high volume of devices with large data payloads. New use cases for 4K video are going beyond consumption for entertainment purposes, with services such as video medical consultations and advanced gaming among others. The installed base of these devices is expected to continue to grow, and an increased volume of 4K content would be seen across wireless networks.

The countries that are expected to be the early adopters of 5G technology are the U.S., Japan, South Korea, and China. In North America, the U.S. is leading the race in the advancements in mobile technologies, ranging from analog to 4G and now in the 5G technology. The U.S. remains a strong player in the vision and R&D of 5G by ensuring it meets the requirements of the North America’s marketplace. Government and private investments in R&D for 5G has been significantly increasing since 2010 to ensure the deployment of 5G technology by 2020. The U.S.-based carriers such as AT&T and Verizon have announced trials and early deployments of 5G technologies, thereby demonstrating a commitment to 5G leadership.

The continuous increase in the number of IoT-connected devices is an opportunity for the 5G technology. To provide high bandwidth to several use cases, the 5G technology is expected to operate at higher frequency bands, leading to the adoption of small cells network concept. However, the multi-cell interference is one of the challenges in ultra-dense small-cell network, which the 5G infrastructure is still dealing with.

The key players in the 5G technology market include Cisco (U.S.), Ericsson (Sweden), SK Telecom (South Korea), Korea Telecom (South Korea), Nokia Networks (Finland), Samsung (South Korea), Qualcomm (U.S.), Intel (U.S.), NEC Corporation (Japan), Huawei (China), Verizon (U.S.), AT&T (U.S.), T-Mobile USA, Inc., LG (South Korea), and China Mobile (China).

These players adopted various strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, expansions, investments, alliances, partnerships, joint ventures, agreements, collaborations, and contracts to achieve growth in the market.
