Global 5G Processor Market is expected to cross USD 18.5 Billion in 2025 growing at a CAGR of 18.3%.

Market Synopsis

The global 5G processor market is slated to eventually overtake the 3G and 4G processor markets with the only limitations being the current higher cost of a 5G processor unit as well as the requirement for strong supporting infrastructure to relay data from 5G processors over large distances. The overwhelming advantage offered by 5G processors regarding transmission speed and accuracy is driving innovation in the market to overcome its shortcomings. Based on the global requirement for device interconnectivity as well as for large critical data transfer, the 5G processors market is slated to exhibit very strong growth during the forecast period.  

Market USP

Exceptional data transfer speeds with reduced cyclic redundancy check times. 

Market Drivers

  • Excellent data transfer speeds

  • Strengthening of IoT networks

  • Critical utility in automated factories

  • Consumer demand for high speeds for streaming data

Market Restraints

  • Transmission loss due to moisture and building blockage

  • Higher market price than alternatives


By Spectrum

  • Gigabit LTE: The Gigabit LTE enabled 5G processors offer unmatched speeds far in excess of any other spectrum. With a peak download speed of 1000 Mbps, this spectrum is ideal for high data exchanges that must occur over a short duration or are critical in nature. Especially beneficial for individuals who upload their photos, videos to the cloud, Gigabit LTE ensures that even the oldest photos or videos within cloud storage can be accessed almost instantly. It is expensive and requires well established supporting infrastructure.

  • mmWave: The largest and fastest-growing market within this segment, mmWave spectrum is in the range of 30–300 GHz. It is ideal for high-speed wireless communication, especially for streaming 4K videos and other data-heavy wireless applications. Due to its short wavelength it is susceptible to interference from rain and building blockage. But the short wavelength also ensures that it can be concentrated by short antennas for propagation over long distances.

By End User

  • Telecommunication: The largest market within this segment, telecommunications are the primary market drivers for 5G processors. Finding extensive utility in smartphones, 5G processors are bound to revolutionize this industry as the 3G processors had done before them causing a marked increase in the 5G mobile processors market size. The demand from various telecommunication corporations is also fueling the innovation within the 5G processor market.

  • Manufacturing: Manufacturing industries are increasingly being automated. Thus, various machines must be able to relay data to one another as well as to human workers. This data is critical and must be relayed in the shortest possible time with accuracy. 5G processors can handle the volume of data that is to be transmitted in a short time without errors.

  • IoT: IoT is a growing market for the use of 5G processors due to their exceptional data handling and transmission capabilities. Multiple devices can concurrently send and receive data using 5G processors ensuring that the IoT network between them is strengthened due to the fast transmission of data.

  • Automotive: The fastest-growing market in this segment, automobile manufacturing is one of the most automated industries today, which creates a ready market for 5G processors, which enhance the efficiency of the system markedly. Self-driving cars have a critical application for 5G processors as they can transmit data to remote/cloud computing drivers. Vehicles can also effectively communicate with each other using 5G tremendously easing traffic and reducing accidents.

  • Consumers: Many consumer smart appliances are being fitted with 5G processors to enhance the speed of data transmission and reduce transmission errors. The fast transmission speed enables effective communication between devices and their user.

  • Others: This segment covers the 5G processor market for applications in military, aerospace, aviation, and others.

By Region

  • North America: The largest regional market for 5G processors is North America. A huge and robust telecommunications industry, a manufacturing industry with high levels of automation, a pioneering automotive industry, as well as a huge smart device market are all factors driving the market in the region.

  • Europe: Europe is a technologically advanced region with a robust and highly automated manufacturing industry and a population invested in enhancing the IoT interconnectivity of devices. These serve to drive the European 5G processor market.

  • Asia-Pacific: The fastest-growing regional market, Asia-Pacific primary utility for 5G processors is its massive telecommunication industry. South Korea and Japan have some of the most advanced automated manufacturing plants which are also driving this market.

  • Rest of the World: Primarily based on demand in the telecommunication industry of the region, the gradual industrialization of this region will also contribute to the growth of the market.
