Investments by communication service providers to deploy 5G infrastructure in a bid to provide improved data services across multiple industry verticals is driving the market growth. Multitude of research and advances in the field of network technologies is expected to bring down the overall installation costs for next generation 5G network equipment and deployment modules. This, in turn, is expected to boost the deployment of 5G technology and related infrastructure.

Key suggestions from the report include:

  • The RAN segment is estimated to reach a market size of USD 214.7 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 112.3% from 2020 to 2027, owing to a significant rise in investments for deploying 5G cloud or centralized RAN across key countries such as U.S., U.K., Japan, and China.
  • With the growing need to provide unified connectivity across IIoT devices and collaborative robots, the demand for 5G technology and related infrastructure in industrial segment is anticipated to witness considerable growth over the forecast period.
  • Huge investments made by infrastructure providers in installing a 5G standalone network to deliver ultra-reliable low latency connectivity for connected vehicle applications is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
  • The sub-6 GHz segment is expected to account for the largest market size of USD 302.4 billion by 2027, largely attributed to the governments focus on releasing sub-6 GHz frequency bands for high-speed data services across major developed economies.

Significantly growing demand for high bandwidth connectivity across wide range of use cases including Ultra-high Definition (UHD) video viewing, cloud-based AR/VR gaming, and HD video meetings is expected to drive demand during the forecast period. Moreover, in a bid to enhance the overall productivity and operational efficiencies, industry verticals including manufacturing, oil and gas, mining, and energy and utilities are making huge investments for deploying robust 5G networks. Thus, the rising need for high bandwidth capacity to help facilities establish unified connectivity across millions of Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices is expected to foster the global market growth from 2020 to 2027.

With the emergence of 5G technology, the transportation and logistics industry is expected to gradually shift towards an autonomous ecosystem. The deployment of a 5G network is expected to help deliver seamless data speed with low latency for various transport applications including connected cars, autonomous cars, and connected ships. Moreover, demand for high-speed bandwidth capacity, especially across healthcare applications including telemedicine and remote patient surgeries is expected to further strengthen the market growth in near future. Similarly, the growth will be supported by rising adoption of smart cities worldwide.

The ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 has had an adverse impact on the market. Several telecom equipment manufacturers across the globe have temporarily shut down their production facilities and halted exports of 5G equipment. The federal governments across key countries such as U.S., France, U.K., and Australia have temporarily postponed the 5G spectrum auctions. Furthermore, the escalating trade war between the two largest economies coupled with rising security concerns is estimated to somewhat pose challenge to the market growth, at least over the next year and half.
