Covid-19 Analysis

COVID-19 has undeniably influenced the 5G rollout. While governments battle the pandemic and its escalating repercussions, the euphoria surrounding 5G has been muted by a trade war with China over claims of unfair trade practices and data espionage, resulting in limitations on several Chinese tech firms Huawei. Growing mobile data consumption has resulted in greater revenue for mobile network operators (MNOs) and internet service providers (ISPs). This advantage is distributed across the telecommunications distribution network. Lockdown and social distancing policies have led to a growing reliance on digital tools, which has increased the demand for telecommunications services. However, in 2019, numerous CSPs (communication service providers) worldwide began testing and deploying 5G networks, with several nations preparing for the rollouts through spectrum auctions, infrastructure contracts, and other activities.

5G Technology Market Trends

Rising Demand For Mobile Broadband Services

With the emergence of 5G, mobile bandwidth is expected to expand, ushering in a new era of immersive experience and connectivity. The next generation of mobile broadband, 5G, is expected to augment 4G LTE connection and offer faster download and upload speeds. The race for rolling out 5G wireless service is not limited to mobile devices but also includes home broadband services. Mobile broadband is a solution for business travelers who spend a lot of time commuting and for people who live in temporary accommodation for a few days or months who may not want to spend on expensive yearly home-based Internet connections. Moreover, 5G technology in mobile broadband services is expected to use high-frequency bands which would have a wider spectrum and higher traffic capacity and faster download speeds than LTE. Furthermore, as emerging markets are realizing the social benefits of advanced technologies, many nations are developing broadband plans from a strategic perspective to speed up the deployment of fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure.

5G Technology Insights

Based on Technology, the Enhanced Mobile Broadband [eMBB] segment accounted for the largest market share. eMBB enables significant improvements in connection speeds, supporting speeds 10 to 20 times faster than today's 4G. Whereas, URLLC provides high reliability and low latency, cutting the time needed to send a signal and receive a response to 10 milliseconds or less. Commonly known as mission-critical services (MCS), this 5G feature offers a highly available and reliable network. Furthermore, massive machine type communication [MMTC] is expected to register a highest CAGR.

5G Technology Spectrum Insights

Based on the spectrum, the market has been classified into 5G NR Sub-6GHz and 5G NR mmWave. 5G NR Sub-6GHz holds an exponential share within the 5G technology market. This can be attributed to the difficulties associated with mmWave means standards organizations and mobile operators are continuing to rely heavily on the sub-6 GHz spectrum. Moreover, 5G NR mmWave segment holds a comparatively smaller share within the 5G technology market. However, the segment is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR rate during the projected period. Since it likely takes one to two years or more to be developed and to harmonize the availability of the new spectrum bands.

5G Technology Application Insights

Based on the application, the market has been segmented into consumer and enterprises. 5G technology for the consumer segment is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR rate during the projected period. There are several digital services through which communication service providers are earning revenue. Enhanced video, augmented reality & virtual reality, cloud gaming, digital advertising, M-commerce, consumer IoT, music, in-venue digital services, live sports streaming, and mobile gaming, among other services. Enterprise's segment is the most lucrative segment for the 5G technology market. This is because the most substantial value of 5G will not come from connecting people but from its ability to provide seamless connectivity to machines, infrastructures, and things.

5G Technology Regional Insights

By Region, the study segments the market into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia-Pacific is expected to hold largest market share in 2021. Asia-Pacific is home to some of the world's most advanced 5G marketplaces, including Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea, all striving to be 5G leaders. By 2025, telecom providers in Asia-Pacific hope to add 663 billion new mobile internet customers. This rise in connection is assisting the mobile sector to have a greater influence on all UN SDGs. Countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are leaders in the 5G network infrastructure. For instance, South Korea successfully demonstrated the technology at the Winter Olympics in South Korea in the recent past, where 5G was used to stream real-time, 360-degree videos of athletes in action. The 5G technology market in Asia-Pacific is also expected to flourish due to huge investments and favorable government policies encouraging the growth of this industry.

Furthermore, the 5G technology market growth in North America is fuelled by the rising demand for 5G-enabled consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and AR/VR devices. The presence of key players such as Cisco, Qualcomm, and Verizon investing heavily in the development of the 5G technology is also responsible for the tremendous growth of the 5G technology in this region. By the conclusion of Q3 2020, North America had 3.4 billion 5G connections and over half a billion LTE connections. This amounts to a 47 percent quarterly increase in 5G in the area, with over 1 billion new 5G connections added during the quarter. It also marks a 3% increase in LTE connections, a gain of 14 billion over the quarter, as LTE continues to extend its long tail of growth.
