Global 5G Infrastructure Market to Grow at 49.4% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Escalating Demand for High-Speed Data

Published on Apr 18, 2022

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “5G Infrastructure Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global 5G infrastructure market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 49.4% during 2022-2027. 5G (fifth generation) infrastructure is a network of macro and small cell base stations that provides low latency coverage for big data streams that power various applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, semi-autonomous vehicles, and augmented reality (AR). These cell base stations are designed to blend in with the existing landscape, occupy minimal space, and enable continuous connection to the macro network that provides wide-area coverage. Moreover, 5G infrastructure primarily relies on software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), mobile edge computing (MEC), and fog computing (FC) technologies that increase agility, improve scalability, and support high mobility.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.?

Global 5G Infrastructure Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the escalating demand for high-speed data and superior network reliability. In addition, the rising trend of automation across various industries is increasing the adoption of 5G infrastructure to enhance operational efficiency and accuracy of industrial procedures. Apart from this, 5G networks are widely adopted in the healthcare industry for monitoring medical procedures remotely and providing critical care treatment. This, coupled with the introduction of driverless automobiles and smart electronic devices, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, 5G networks are also utilized for the internet of things (IoT) devices, semi-autonomous vehicles, augmented reality (AR), smart grids, kitchen appliances, and climate control systems due to their low latency and high-speed data transmission properties. Furthermore, the increasing number of smart cities across the globe, the growing consumer inclination toward live streaming, video calling, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) gaming, the rising popularity of precision farming, and the advent of instant cloud computing technologies are some of the other factors propelling the market growth.
