This IDC Market Perspective examines the different models and use cases that will drive 5G revenue growth. As more and more 5G networks go live around the world, the conversation must pivot from deploying infrastructure to realizing a return on that capex investment. A variety of use cases will ultimately generate 5G revenue, but not all will see the same degree of revenue growth. "Anytime a technology can do something truly transformational - like 5G's ability to deliver high speed, low latency, and connection density improvements - there is a tendency to equate its potential with a big revenue opportunity," says Jason Leigh, research manager, Mobility and 5G Service research at IDC. "The complexity of 5G use cases, the diversity of complementary technologies, and the broader 5G partnership ecosystem means that the road to 5G revenue is not automatic and the monetary impact will be dispersed in smaller amounts to a wider array of vendors and service providers."
