This IDC study provides the worldwide 5G connections forecast for 2021-2024."There is no denying the appeal of 5G's performance vis-a-vis other wireless connectivity modes, and to say its widespread adoption is inevitable is far from hyperbole," says Jason Leigh, research manager, 5G and Mobile Services, IDC. "As 5G networks come to more countries, the emergence of new use cases and 5G functionality permeating more form factors, especially nonsmartphone devices and sensors, will only serve to accelerate the increase in 5G connections over the coming years."
