European 5G Connections Forecast, 2022–2026

This IDC Market Forecast provides the European 5G connections forecast for 2022 to 2026 for consumer and business connections. In a region facing diverse economic and political situations, there are notable differences in adoption between countries, and we include information on key country developments in this report."We forecast that 5G connections will grow rapidly in number throughout the forecast period as new use cases drive enterprise deployments across all verticals," said Richard Thurston, research manager, European 5G Strategies. "Enterprises will be the key opportunity in 5G, buoyed by growing interest in mobile private networks and — later in the forecast period — network slicing, which will deliver greater performance and security as well as stronger business outcomes."
