According to a recent report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “5G Enterprise Market by Frequency, Spectrum, Network Type, Organization Size, Industry Vertical, and Region: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2028,” the 5G enterprise market size was valued at $1,682 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $16,846 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 33.9% from 2021 to 2028. Use of 5G enterprise solutions among the end users has increased in the last few years due to adoption of new cutting edge technologies in various organizations and rise in competition to create new mile stone in communication sector. In addition, increase in demand for next generation telecommunication network service among enterprises fuels the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in need for interactive, efficient and cost-effective communication and data service along with emerging technology such as internet of things and artificial intelligence are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the market during the forecast period.
On the basis of frequency, the sub-6Ghz segment dominated the overall 5G enterprise market in 2020, and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in adoption of 5G enterprise among enterprises to gain strategic as well as competitive advantage over their competitors. In addition, it provides wide coverage area and allow full network inside the close places such as house and offices, which drives the growth of the Market. However, the mmWave frequency segment is expected to witness highest growth, as these mmWave 5G technology allows the large number of users to connect one access point which is useful in the dense populated area in metropolitan city. The adoption of these technology speeds up new business implementation, maximizes the value of existing mobile and wearable resources by optimizing it, and minimizes the data cost, which further fuel the 5G enterprise market growth.
Depending on spectrum, the licensed segment dominated the 5G enterprise market share in 2020, and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to numerous benefits provided by this spectrum type such as high quality of connectivity, which results in lower costs if there is addition of new resources, high security, and others. However, the unlicensed/ shared segment is expected to witness highest growth in the 5G enterprise market owing to growing adoption of unlicensed infrastructure due to its cost-effective and standalone operation, that the operation of unlicensed spectrum is not depend on any communication operator service which notably contributes toward the growth of the global market..
On the basis of organization size, large scale organization dominated the 5G Enterprise market share and is expected to continue this growth during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to heavy investment of large scale organization in the 5G networks. Also, the growing requirement of high speed internet in large scale organizations drives the 5G enterprise market. However the small and medium scale organization recorded highest growing segment due to major shift of small and medium scale business toward digitization and adoption of internet of things in the regular operation, which drives the market globally.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a defining moment, The COVID-19 outbreak has positively impacted the growth of the global 5G Enterprise market, to ease business operation during the COVID-19 pandemic, the governments of various emerging countries along with the private sectors companies are working together to speed up the development of 5G Enterprise and network. Moreover, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, almost all employees are working from home or their native place. Factors, such as working from home (WFH), and digital transformation of businesses, have become key components in the emergence of 5G enterprise. However, during lockdown, the implementation of 5G enterprise is slightly affected due to limited supply of the auxiliary equipment such as optical fiber wire and micro stations. Furthermore, in the post-lockdown scenario, the growth of 5G enterprise is expected to increase as the demand grows for high speed low latency internet. This is expected to drive the 5G enterprise market globally.
Key Findings Of The Study
