5G Infrastructure Market Expected to Be Worth $58.17B by 2025

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, the global 5G infrastructure market size was $371.4 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $58.17 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 95.8% from 2018 to 2025.

The report states that the growing penetration of M2M/IoT connections and a surge in demand for mobile broadband services will drive the global 5G infrastructure market. However, huge initial investment, implementation challenges regarding technology & infrastructure, and increase in security and privacy concerns can limit the market growth.

Based on communication infrastructure, the small cell segment contributed nearly two-fifths of the total market share in 2017 and will maintain its dominance through 2025. This is due to a surge in demand for mobile broadband services and its ability to efficiently offer high-speed broadband. However, the radio access network segment will grow at the highest CAGR of 108.0% during the forecast period from 2018–2025, owing to its evolution and support for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) antennas, multi-band carrier aggregation, large spectrum bandwidths, and Distributed Antenna System.

Based on chipset type, ASIC held the major share in 2017, accounting for nearly half of the total market share and is expected to maintain its leadership status by 2025. This is due to an increase in demand for custom chips. On the other hand, FPGA is expected to register the highest growth rate with a CAGR of 109.6% from 2018 to 2025, owing to its reprogramming characteristics that led to wide adoption.

According to the report, Asia-Pacific accounted for more than one-third of the total share in 2017 and will maintain its dominant position through 2025, owing to huge adoption of smart technologies in the region. However, LAMEA is expected to grow at the highest rate, with a CAGR of 119.4% from 2018 to 2025, owing to high rate of adoption of advanced systems and solutions in different industry verticals in the region.

Leading market players analyzed in the report include AT&T, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Ericsson, Intel Corporation, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Nokia Corporation, Mediatek Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Verizon.
