Telecommunication Equipment segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.

Despite the economic slowdowns, 5G demand in several industries has been accelerating. Online and essential retail, manufacturing, and healthcare (including physical, mental, and elderly care) are expected to utilize 5G technologies. With the enhanced capabilities of 5G, particularly private 5G networks for manufacturing and healthcare, the demand for 5G infrastructure is expected to rise.

Physical distancing and spikes in patient volumes in hospitals due to COVID-19 are driving the need for advanced connectivity in healthcare. With the help of video conferencing and many cloud-connected IoT endpoints, 5G-enabled telemedicine, including remote patient monitoring is expected to allow access to medical care without potential exposure to COVID-19 and reduces hospital bed demand.

However, various supply chain forces will impact the telecommunications ecosystem. For instance, most 5G network operators rely on equipment from Huawei, Nokia, and Ericsson, despite the rise of open radio access networks. The 5G New Radio supply chain has been negatively impacted, mainly because most 5G radio units and active antennas are being manufactured in China.
