5G Infrastructure Market by Communication Infrastructure (Small Cell, RAN, Macro Cell), Network Technology (SDN, NFV, MEC, FC), Chipset Type (ASIC, RFIC), Application (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Retail), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2026

“5G infrastructure market expected to grow at a CAGR of 50.9% between 2020 and 2026”
The 5G infrastructure market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.86 billion in 2020 and it is further expected to reach USD 33.72 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 50.9% between 2020 and 2026. The major factors driving the growth of the 5G infrastructure market include the increasing demand for mobile data services, rising importance of software implementation in a communication network, the growth of machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in industries, and growing demand for high speed and large network coverage. However, delay in the standardization of spectrum allocation is the major restraining factor for the growth of the 5G infrastructure market.

“Software-defined networking (SDN) technology expected to hold the largest market share in 2020”
The SDN has been proposed as a promising technique for 5G network as it will be a key component in designing 5G network infrastructure. The 5G network will provide fundamental infrastructure for a vast number of new devices with less predictability of data traffic patterns in the network. To successfully manage this new 5G network, the SDN would play an integral role in terms of offering new intelligent architecture for 5G network to reduce the hardware limitations.

“5G infrastructure market in APAC expected to grow at a high rate between 2020 and 2026”
This growth is mainly because of rapid technological development by major industrial players. Companies such as ZTE (China), Huawei (China), and Nokia (Finland) are heavily investing in 5G infrastructure products and initiating the development of prototypes and field trials together with some of the leading mobile service carriers such as AT&T (US), China Mobile (China), SoftBank (Japan), and China Unicom (China). Additionally, in industry advanced automation technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics are implemented to increase the efficiency. For these technologies, faster connectivity is of prime importance and 5G network technology is well-suited to addresses this concern.
