5G Services Market

China Mobile (China) and SK Telecom (South Korea) are Leading Players in the 5G Services Market

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global 5G services size to grow from USD 53.0 billion in 2020 to USD 249.2 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 29.4% during the forecast period. A large number of developed countries have successfully laid the test beds for 5G services and are expected to roll out 5G services within one year. The monetization of 5G services is expected to take a couple of years more, as the offloading to 5G connectivity platforms is expected to take some more time. The transformation from 2G to 3G was mainly to offer better internet connectivity to mobile users, followed by better audio call routing. On the other hand, the transformation from 3G to 4G was primarily concerned with offering better Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) services to end users. The transformation to 5G connectivity is considered to be a revolution in the connectivity industry. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication and latent-free services are the prime objectives of 5G services.

The key and emerging market players in the 5G services market include  AT&T (US), China Mobile (China), SK Telecom (South Korea), Verizon (US), BT Group (UK), Deutsche Telekom (Germany), T-Mobile (US), China Telecom (China), Orange S.A (France), Vodafone (UK), China Unicom (China), Telstra (Australia), Telefonica (Spain), KT (South Korea), Rogers (Canada), Bell Canada(Canada), Etisalat( UAE), STC (KSA), LG U+( South Korea), NTT Docomo (Japan), KDDI (Japan), Telus (Canada), Swisscom (Switzerland), DISH (US), Reliance Jio(India), Rakuten (Japan), MTN ( South Africa), Airtel (India),and  Telenor Group (Norway).
