The global 5G services market size is estimated to reach USD 414.50 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 43.9% from 2021 to 2027, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Rapidly rising demand for ultra-reliable and low latency data networks capable of providing enhanced mobile connectivity is estimated to boost the market growth over the forecast period. The potential adoption of 5G services for remote patient monitoring and remote surgery applications is also anticipated to propel the market growth from 2021 to 2027.
The 5G wireless technology is expected to completely transform the transportation and logistics industry by providing seamless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) connectivity. As such, the need to ensure a strong, seamless, and uninterrupted connectivity with autonomous vehicles is estimated to drive the adoption of 5G services. Furthermore, robust deployment of 5G network infrastructure is estimated to improve the operational efficiencies in several IoT use cases, including smart homes, smart cities, and industry 4.0. Hence, rising need for high bandwidth in order to provide reliable communication to IoT devices is expected to elevate the overall market growth over the forecast period.
In some countries such as U.S., China, and Japan, the trend of monitoring energy systems of buildings remotely is rising gradually. This is expected to open new opportunities for rolling out 5G services over the forecast period. As such, growing need for remote asset monitoring, drone control and coordination, and smart grid control is anticipated to fuel the growth of the ultra-reliable low-latency communications (uRLLC) segment over the forecast period.
Key market players such as AT&T Inc.; China Telecommunications Corporation; and Verizon Communications are investing aggressively in rolling out 5G infrastructure to provide low-latency services for faster machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. However, these market players are expected to deliberate before making investments owing to the high 5G spectrum prices. Stringent governments’ regulations and policies pertaining to the 5G wireless technology are also expected to hinder the market growth. Moreover, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the governments across key countries, such as U.S., Spain, U.K., and France, have postponed the auction for 5G spectrums. This is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
