Executive Summary

The process of the evolution of 5G infrastructure hardware components and the technologies of networking has considerably changed the global telecommunications industry in terms of cost-effectiveness, reduced latency, and convenience of the users. The global 5G infrastructure market is growing at a robust rate and is expected to witness a CAGR of 75.09% during the forecast period. Moreover, the radio access network segment is gaining popularity with an increasing number of base stations and is expected to grow at a significantly higher rate in the future. The 5G infrastructure market is witnessing a transition due to the increasing data traffic and demand for high network speed from end users.

There is no doubt that the market has many factors responsible for the growth of 5G infrastructure systems, but there are certain restraints that could plague the 5G infrastructure market in the coming years. For example, the poor availability of fiber backhaul network in many countries, such as the U.K., has hindered the deployment of small cells for 5G networks. Also, a wide consumer acceptance for 5G networks with a need of device compatible with these networks plays a crucial role in the growth of this market.

The 5G infrastructure market has been tracked along the lines of communication infrastructure (radio access network, core network, and transport network), application areas, and regions. Revenue generated from various application areas, namely energy and utilities, industrial, automotive, and consumer electronics applications have been analyzed. The report also covers the 5G infrastructure market on a global scale and consequently provides revenue data of the key regions. A separate segment specifically has been dedicated to the key global regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW).

The radio access network plays an important role in the telecommunication system as it forms the connection between the device and the core network. The overall cost of a set-up depends significantly on the area covered for network distribution, and equipment like small cells, macro cells, and antenna systems, and others. As a result of the rising number of internet users, the need for faster network, and a harmonized spectrum has increased which is contributing to the growth of the 5G infrastructure market.

The usage for 5G infrastructure systems in a number of applications is expected to have a significant share in the next five years. This increase can primarily be attributed to the increasing consumer inclination towards low latency, and high-speed internet; and the trend of connected ecosystem with the growing IoT space.

The market study by BIS Research has identified North America as the leading region in the global 5G infrastructure market accounting for almost 37% of the net revenue generated by the 5G infrastructure; and estimates that the region will continue its dominance during the forecast period as well. APAC too is anticipated to be a promising market with the multi-fold rise in demand expected from South Korea, Japan, and other Asian nations.
