5(G) Trends for 2020

This IDC Market Perspective provides an outlook on key trends that will shape the environment for 5G deployment and adoption in 2020. It examines elements of global commercial deployments, spectrum allocation, service offerings, device development, and use-case innovation. "While 2019 saw some activity in terms of moving 5G from the lab to the 'real world,' 2020 will begin to see 5G's potential unleashed across a broader swath of consumers and industries and will set the conditions for realizing the futuristic use cases for 5G that have been promised for the past couple years," says Jason Leigh, research manager, Mobility. "Achieving 5G's potential will require the coalescence of many different technologies, and 2020 will see the establishment of more partnerships and greater collaboration from many different vendors to achieve that end."
