5G technology is the fifth-generation wireless technology, which is in its developmental stage, and is expected to be commercialized in the coming two to three years. The technologys operational speed is expected to be several times faster than the existing wireless technologies (1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G) and significantly penetrate the 2G and 3G wireless markets. High speed, faster download speed, low cost, and expansion in the Internet of Things (IOT) market drive the 5G technology market. This technology is expected to be utilized extensively in driverless cars, smart logistics, virtual reality, and augmented reality-based applications.
Nokia, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Ericsson have made few advancements in 5G technology by investing large capital on R&D activities. Partnership and acquisitions are the key developmental strategies adopted by the players in the market. For instance, in November 2016, Qualcomm and Samsung partnered to work on this technology. Similarly, Ericsson and Zain Group collaborated in December 2016 to perform R&D on this technology. The 5G technology is anticipated to have high adoption rates in the U.S., UK, China, and India, due to the presence of key technology players, increase in R&D activities, and development of the ICT infrastructure.
