There have been many exciting initiatives in recent years relating to IoT, Artificial Intelligence and the overall Smart City movement. It is thought that we will see even faster advancement of these sectors with the emergence of 5G, supported by fixed high-speed broadband and mobile satellite infrastructure.

5G will offer superior speeds, latency, connections, remote coverage, and efficient energy consumption. The development of 5G is close to reaching a tipping point; with many commercial deployments, supported by 5G devices planned for 2020. Also, we will begin to see the ITU release its much anticipated global standards for the industry.

Adjacent infrastructure and services provided by fixed broadband and mobile satellite will also be a key area of focus for the telecoms industry in 2020. This infrastructure is required to supply backhaul capabilities and fulfill the escalating data demands transpiring from both the developed and developing markets.

The satellite sector now offers higher satellite capacity, lower pricing and general improvements to the technology and this has led to an increased interest in this market - particularly in emerging markets where it can be used to widen the availability of mobile telecoms to rural and remote areas.

Important satellite launches and new service offerings are occurring around the world in 220, particularly in some of the emerging markets of the South Pacific, South-East Asia, and Africa.

Overall trends relating to Cloud Computing, IoT/M2M, Artificial Intelligence, 5G, fixed broadband, submarine cables, and mobile satellite will be key areas of interest for the telecoms sector in 2020.

Global Telecoms - Key Trends for 2020 explores these topics from the perspective of the telecoms industry, with a focus on 5G, fixed broadband and mobile satellite. It provides insights, analysis, statistics, and examples.

Key Developments

  • In 2020 the industry focus is well and truly back on telecommunications infrastructure, led by 5G, mobile satellite, and fibre-based broadband developments
  • Trends relating to smart cities, IoT/M2M and Artificial Intelligence will also be a key area of focus
  • There are now well over 5 billion unique mobile subscriptions globally
  • With more mature markets becoming increasingly dependent on replacement purchases rather than on first-time buyers, the shipments of smartphones have dropped for the past few years
  • Globally, the penetration rates of mobile broadband paint an interesting picture with a large contrast between penetration in the developed and developing markets
  • There are around 1.15 billion fixed broadband subscribers worldwide, indicating opportunities for growth
