5G Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market Outlook and Forecasts 2021 – 2028

5G Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market Outlook and Forecasts 2021 – 2028

This global 5G MVNO market report assesses the impact of 5G inclusion in MVNO networks and its ability to facilitate enhanced services and new business models. The report evaluates infrastructure and enabling technologies in support of MVNO as well as new anticipated business models such as IoT-specific, data-only, and fixed wireless-oriented MVNOs.

The report also analyzes the MVNO ecosystem including MVNE companies and aggregator solutions including MVNA companies. The other important things discussed in the report includes the potential application of 5G MVNO solutions, the analysis of services and strategy of leading MVNO, MVNA, and MVNE companies, and forecasts covering the 2021 – 2028 period.

Select Report Findings:
• The 5G MVNO market is posed to reach USD $10.4 billion by 2028
• IoT specific and purpose specific MVNO will grow substantially in next five years
• 5G will bring multifold opportunity in the ecosystem including MVNE or MVNA companies
• AI and Machine learning technology will play a significant role in 5G enabled MVNOs
• B2B solution market holds a substantial market share during 2021 – 2028
• North America will lead the 5G MVNO market followed by APAC region

The MVNO model is on a high growth trajectory despite the mature mobile market, especially in the North America and Western Europe region. The demand for cheaper mobile service is attracting increasingly more purpose-intended MVNO companies such as IoT focused MVNO, data specific MVNO, fixed wireless specific MVNO, and private network specific MVNO.

In some cases, telecom regulatory bodies support the development of MVNO companies as a means of boosting competition in the mobile sectors. The existing MVNO companies typically then move to offer a new business model with new value-added service in addition to the existing package. They either focus on playing the low cost MVNO price card or create niche MVNO companies to attract overlooked or poorly served customer groups or industry segments.

The MVNO model has started to address specific market segments with new types of services and added value proposition, especially in the case of previously unrealized and/or unmet needs as is the case with many IoT-oriented solution providers.

In this manner, the MVNO industry aims to attract underserved customer niches, which helps the operator generate ARPU from existing customers with tailor-made offers. Sometimes, the MNO companies create their own sub-brand of MVNO to meet the demand of cheaper mobile service.

Mind Commerce has found that nearly 37% of the people who plan to switch mobile phone service are considering an MVNO connection or an MNO sub-brand. The major reason behind this trend includes the demand for cheaper mobile services.
