Market Trends of 5G Services Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the 5G Services Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Data Traffic and Demand for High Speed Data Connectivity will Drive the Market Growth

  • 5G standards are likely to support ultra-HD voice and video to produce new applications that rely on voice communication, for instance, telepresence. The 5G's device density, low latency, security, and video capabilities may support added value communications offerings, like Rich Communication Services, especially for enterprises.
  • North America has the highest levels of mobile broadband and smartphone adoption globally. The operators in North America have begun to shut down 2G and 3G networks to reframe the spectrum. This trend is expected to continue as regional operators switch to 5G networks using a mix of low, medium, and high-band spectrums.
  • Countries such as Sweden and the United Arab Emirates strive to offer superior performance by strengthening user experience through continuous network evolution. As more advanced services and devices emerge, the operators may need to raise their targeted service quality levels even higher.
  • Moreover, with increased dependence on streaming services, 4G networks supported majorly, streaming with AR/VR, 4k/8k video, and 360-degree videos, the 5G video content is expected to be immersive and consume a higher proportion of the overall data traffic.
  • The 5G subscription traffic growth is driven by both the rising number of smartphone subscriptions and a need for increasing average data volume per subscription due to video content viewing.

North America is Expected to Hold the Largest Share

  • 5G-enabled IoT connections are expected to witness a further increase in demand in the United States. As per the IoT Association, the United States leads, in terms of smart home adoption, with the highest smart home device ratio per household and the greatest consumer propensity to own devices across two or three use cases (security, energy, and appliances).
  • Additionally, the country expects billions of devices to be connected to the internet, devices, and sensors of the Internet of Things. With the onset of 5G networks, the extensive bandwidth and faster internet speeds can be utilized by Google and Facebook; for instance, to develop more advanced services shortly.
  • Apart from the launch of 5G services, the United States also needs to focus on software development. Repurposing the country's mid-band spectrums currently being used by the military or weather radars may make networks more efficient.
  • Moreover, the country is promoting technologies, such as automated and connected driving, to enhance road safety, reduce road congestion, and decrease air pollution. Such initiatives to gain experience in actual driving scenarios are also supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
