Research and Markets Logo

Comparing to the speed of other traditional wireless connectivity, 5G offers 10 times faster speed connectivity. Thus, this factor enhances flawless connectivity and networking under several applications globally. This technology supports improved technologies like virtual reality, smart infrastructures, and automotive vehicles.

The main growth factor for the increasing demand of 5G infrastructure includes the rising demand for the mobile data services and data growth, development of IoT based technologies, the growing importance of the software implementation in the communication network, growing adoption of the virtual networking architecture, and increasing M2M connections across several industries.

The key opportunities for the market expansion in 5G are edge computing, smart grid communication system, massive machine type communication. However, intercell interference and technological design complexity for power dissipation act as challenges for market growth. Furthermore, delays in standardization in spectrum allocation inhibit the growth of the market.

The objective of this report is to understand the technology landscape, patent analysis, and estimate & forecast the 5G infrastructure market. This study was done on the technological front, and IP analysis is to identify & analyze innovations in the 5G infrastructure. It covers infrastructure elements like Backhaul, Front haul, Network slicing, SDN (software-defined network), NFV (Network function virtualization), MEC (Multi-access edge computing), Radio Access Network (BBUs, RRUs) and Beamforming techniques.


  • From their analytics, the publisher has identified Samsung has the key player in 5G focusing on Infrastructure Related to 5G
  • AT&T and Ericsson are working primarily on SDN, NFV and Network slicing.
  • Huawei is focusing on Network Slicing, Multi-access edge computing whereas, Intel is focusing on Beamforming techniques and SDN/NVF.

Recent Strategic Initiatives

  • In March 2020, Nokia announced partnership with Intel for technological advances for its 5G radio portfolio. This collaboration agreement was based on the acquisition of Intel products, namely the new Atom P5900 processor. The company adds that the Intel processor will be used in ReefShark silicon chip solutions.
  • In January 2020, Samsung acquired TeleWorld Solutions to further build its 5G infrastructure. The acquisition of TWS will enable the company to meet mobile carriers' growing needs for improving 4G and 5G networks, and eventually create new opportunities to enhance our service capabilities
