5G Chipset Market

5G Chipset Market by IC Type (RFIC, ASIC, Cellular IC, mmWave IC), Operational Frequency (Sub-6 GHz, Between 26 & 39 GHz, Above 39 GHz), Product (Devices, CPE, Network Infrastructure Equipment), End-User Industry, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2026

Report Code: SE 6368 Jun, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

[146 Pages Report] MarketsandMarkets forecasts the overall 5G chipset market to be valued at USD 2.03 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 22.41 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 49.2% between 2020 and 2026. Major drivers for the market are growing demand for high-speed internet and broad network coverage with reduced latency and power consumption, and increasing M2M/IoT connections.

5G Chipset Market

By IC type, the ASIC segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period

Demand for 5G-enabled smartphones and high chipset cost result in the largest share of ASIC in the 5G chipset market. Many companies are in the process of developing ASIC chipsets to emerge as early providers and showcase commercial readiness for 5G. In February 2017, Samsung Electronics (South Korea) launched RFIC and ASIC chipsets required for 5G modems. This would further help build 5G network infrastructure, and its related products include home routers and radio base station products.

By Operational frequency, the 5G chipset market for sub-6 GHz frequency band resonator holds the largest share of the market

To deliver widespread coverage and support multiple use cases, 5G devices operating in the sub-6 GHz spectrum band are likely to play an important role. Sub-1 GHz frequency will support 5G services in urban, suburban, and rural areas, and may find its role in IoT services. This spectrum is likely to help 5G services reach hard-to-reach and populated public areas. Spectrum from 1 to 6 GHz will be used for coverage and capacity applications of 5G. Many countries are exploring opportunities lying between 3.3 and 3.8 GHz frequency band for the initial launch of 5G services.

By geography, the market in Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to gain highest growth

The growth of the 5G chipset market in APAC will mainly be driven by growing developments (such as R&D activities, investments, and partnerships among companies) related to 5G in countries such as Japan, China, South Korea, and India. Companies such as ZTE (China), Huawei (China), Ericsson (Sweden), and Nokia (Finland) are heavily investing in 5G and initiating field trials with some of the leading mobile service carriers, such as AT&T (US), China Mobile (China), SoftBank (Japan), and China Unicom (China). Leading players from different sections of the industry’s value chain are engaging in 5G network field tests and trials. For instance, in October 2017, ZTE (China) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in 5G network and IoT with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL, India), the largest Indian state-owned telecom company. Such developments in 5G network will create opportunities for the 5G chipset market to grow in APAC.

5G Chipset Market

Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing demand for mobile data services

The continuous development of cellular network has enabled users to experience fast data transfer rates with low latency. Demand for mobile data services is primarily driven by the growing use of services and applications in both consumer electronic devices and business-to-business (B2B) communication systems that are currently using/testing data-intensive applications such as virtual and augmented reality, and 3D and ultra-HD video content. To support the increasing data traffic, more bandwidth is required. It is expected that 5G would provide 1,000 times more bandwidth than its predecessor mobile broadband generations 4G and 3G. Therefore, the growing mobile data traffic would force network operators to provide more bandwidth to consumers; this factor is expected to propel the demand for 5G mobile broadband technology in the future.

Restraint:  High hardware cost involved in terrestrial network densification

Continuous increase in data traffic within mobile broadband systems and growing demand for improved data rates from various end-use applications are expected to create a need for the densification of radio access networks or deployment of additional network nodes. To achieve network densification using small cells, a wide-scale deployment of fiber optic cable is required. This infrastructural upgrade is likely to be first rolled out in brownfield sites in the most densely populated locations, followed by greenfield deployment in new cell sites. Network densification in high-frequency 5G bands (mmWave) that are prone to signal loss is anticipated to play a major role. The deployment of additional optical fiber cables and small cells will draw huge investment for the successful rollout of 5G services. Software-defined network and network function virtualization—which promise to reduce the total capital expenditure involved in 5G—are still in the R&D phase. This factor is expected to have a high impact on 5G rollout in the coming years.

Opportunity: Integration of 5G services with satellite communication

The integration of satellite and terrestrial network infrastructure with 5G is expected to contribute immensely to the ubiquitous delivery of 5G services. The amalgamation of 5G with satellite communication system will facilitate streamlined communication in mission-critical and industrial applications, such as airplanes, high-speed rails, ships, and unserved/underserved locations where legacy cellular networks fail. The satellite industry had been dominated by government bodies and key communication service providers; however, the increasing participation of private players, such as Space X (US), Blue Origin (US), and Virgin Galactic (US), is likely to open opportunities for communication in the satellite industry. In October 2017, OneWeb (US) announced to launch 10 satellites in early-2018 to test the delivery of Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE services.

Moreover, sharing C-band spectrum with the telecom industry is one of the emerging trends. In October 2017, Intelsat (US) and Intel (US) submitted a joint proposal to expand the use of 3,700–4,200 MHz spectrum from satellite services to terrestrial mobile services.

Challenge:  Technological design challenges

5G network technology is in the nascent stage. Network and design engineers are trying to develop a network that can handle growing data traffic efficiently. While designing such network, research and design engineers face challenges such as heat dissipation in MIMO antenna and frequency interference in 5G network.

Qualcomm holds the first position in the 5G chipset market based on its product offering, R&D activity, and market strategy over the past 2 years. Qualcomm has strong expertise in 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi, which has helped the company develop chipsets for 5G. Qualcomm has been a leader in the mobile processor market and is likely to dominate the 5G market as well in the future. Qualcomm has also collaborated with industry leaders to drive and implement 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) standardizations along with field trials. The latest development of X50 modem, along with partnership with leading carrier providers and OEMs, is expected to result in the strong market position of Qualcomm in the near term.

Recent Developments

In January 2018, Intel, Deutsche Telecom (Germany), and Huawei (China) conducted the world’s first over-the-air test showcasing 5G interoperability and development testing (IODT) based on the Release 15 NSA 5G NR specification. The test was based on Huawei’s 5G commercial base station and Intel’s third-generation 5G NR Mobile Trial Platform.

In January 2018, Nokia unveiled ReefShark chipsets, which reduce the size, cost, and power consumption of operators’ networks and meet the massive compute and radio requirements of 5G. ReefShark chipsets for radio frequency (RF) units such as the radio used in antennas significantly improve their performance. This results in halving the size of massive MIMO antennas. ReefShark chipsets also reduce power consumption in baseband units by 64%, compared to such units in use today.

In November 2017, Anokiwave announced the expansion of its family of mmWave 5G ICs with the release of AWMF-0135, a 24.25–27.5 GHz silicon active antenna quad-core IC, for the 5G communications markets. AWMF-0135 supports 4 radiating elements and includes 5-bit phase and gain control for analog RF beam steering.
