At a glance:

IoT Analytics estimates that by the end of 2019, the first year of commercial availability of 5G networks and smartphones, the number of connected 5G devices will be in single digit millions.

As operators worldwide proceed with network rollouts and more 5G devices enter the market, the global number of 5G connections is expected to exceed 1 billion in 2025, recording a 160+% CAGR in the 2019-2025 period.

With such a growth rate, 5G will be the fastest growing connectivity technology in that period.

This study explores the role of 5G in the IoT connectivity landscape and explores the economics of 5G from an operator’s perspective looking at spectrum licensing fees, RAN infrastructure costs, energy consumption, network sharing costs and new business models.

The 5G Market Report provides a comprehensive technical overview section on 5G, covering standardization process, spectrum analysis, and identifies the main building blocks for 5G connectivity.

Furthermore, the report classifies 8 key technical performance capabilities of 5G and takes a deep-dive into each capability with several examples.

The market sizing chapter of the 5G market report analyzes the global installed base of 5G connected devices and breaks down the number by region.

Market numbers are included for the global installed base of 5G connected devices by device type IoT and Non-IoT.

The 5G market report breaks down the global number of 5G IoT connections by 10 market segments (Agriculture & Environment, Automotive & Transportation, Buildings & Infrastructure, Consumer & Living, Energy & Utilities, Healthcare & Wellness, Industrial & Manufacturing, Retail & Financial Services, Smart City & Public Safety, Supply Chain & Logistics).

Forecasts for the number of 5G connections (IoT & Non-IoT) globally are given and broken down by usage scenario such as eMBB, FWA, mMTC, and URLLC.

The report also includes an analysis with projections for 5G network operator’s spending.

A comprehensive vendor landscape analysis is given including 8 detailed company profiles, with a description of each companies’ main 5G offering, relevant 5G activities and gives a number of project examples.

Finally, the report outlines 4 market drivers, 5 barriers to adoption, 4 trends currently shaping the 5G market and provides a 5G IoT Use case matrix mapping use cases by maturity and market potential to identify the leading use cases.
