Global 5G Report - Technology Status, Players (Including Profiles), Forecasts & Market Data for 2019-2026

DUBLIN, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Global 5G Report - Technology Status, Players (Including Profiles), Forecasts & Market Data for 2019 - 2026" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The culmination of around seven months of intensive research - including the important closely-related topics of 4G LTE, the IoT and the IIoT

This report provides global and regional coverage (7 regions) including 5G activities that are profiled for 76 countries. Data in this report indicates that the Middle East and South America are increasingly important regions as well as the more familiar countries such as China, South Korea, the UK and the USA. The report provides an update of technology status, players (including profiles), 2019-2026 forecasts for cell sites (C-RAN/small cells) and market data down to RF module level. C-RAN stands for a cloud-based radio access network.

For the year 2020 the total global market for 5G C-RAN RF modems well exceeds US$100M - and grows rapidly through the 2020s.

The report's main emphasis is on sub-6 GHz because this lower 5G frequency band has the major momentum worldwide. However, some data on millimeter-wave systems is also included. Profiles include 32 Tier 1 and Tier 2 communications service providers (CSPs) as well as equipment suppliers. There are a total of 69 Figures - mostly comprising column charts showing annual forecasts from 2019 through 2026. Most forecasts include volumes as well as monetary data (in US$).

Examples of interesting results:

  • North America overtakes China during the early-1990s;
  • The MEA region (notably Bahrain, Israel, Qatar and the U.A.E.) grows in importance over the forecast period.

Important driving factors leading to the requirement for faster and more agile communications (5G) include the following:

  • The almost insatiable appetite for ever-faster communications;
  • Owning or renting the latest gadget - fashion - one-upmanship (the latest smartphone);
  • The growth in the Internet of Things (the IoT, especially the IIoT);
  • Automotive applications, including autonomous vehicles:- the absolute need for very low latency (down to <_ms____li _="_">
  • Medical applications which are of course absolutely critical because life and death situations are ever-present and near-immediate reactions are necessary;
  • It is however important to appreciate that in theory at least national and even personal security could potentially be compromised using any vendor's base station technology (surveillance).

Market Highlights

Nowadays the great majority of 5G networks operate using sub-6GHz (i.e. at microwave) frequencies. And this will probably continue well into the future. How has this become possible? There are two overall major reasons:

  1. Important software (and associated digital) developments;
  2. Massive-input, massive-output technology (mMIMO).

It is not necessary for the user of this report to understand any further details about these technological developments.

Various countries are adopting different frequency channels for the ubiquitous sub-6GHz 5G networks.

mmWave frequencies are used for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) otherwise known as Fixed Wireless Broadband (FWB) systems.

In the research towards this report, a total of 76 countries were investigated in terms of their 5G stance and plans as well as their economic status. Brief, terse, profiles have been generated for each country. Also shipments data were deduced for at least 73 of these countries - leading to the annual 2019-2026 forecasting of such data for the following seven geographic regions:

  • APAC (strictly Asia, Pacific and China -although China is brought out separately)
  • China
  • Eastern Europe
  • MEA (Middle East & Africa)
  • North America
  • South America
  • Western Europe
