The global 5G IoT market was valued at USD 809.3 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 45.8% during the forecast period. The growth boosting the market is attributed towards the innovations in the 5G technologies that is not limited only to smartphones but also across several verticals such as automotive, medical/healthcare, security, industry, construction, insurance, distribution, farming/ fisheries, tourism, public transport (rail and bus), entertainment, retail/services, public infrastructure (road and bridge monitoring), etc., in order to develop & implement an effective transformation strategy for their existing businesses. Moreover, rapid explosion of mobile traffic continues globally is accelerating the demand for 5G IoT that has led to increased need for a faster network with higher capacity for connectivity across the business operations.
5G Internet of Things (IoT) technology provides advanced developments of existing mobile communication, with massive changes in digitalization, society, and economies globally. In addition, the technology is aiming at expanding the infrastructural conditions of conventional networks in order to ensure instant availability of networks for mobile devices. Recently, Nokia expands Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) supporting service providers to offer full range of services with ultra-low latency, enhanced throughput and high security. Moreover, as IoT is on the rise with exponential developments, the growing needs of the networked society are expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the upcoming launch of the fifth-generation of cellular mobile communications which is aiming to improve the performance & reliability of device connections is becoming one of the major growth factors in the market. In addition, due to the increased speed, these advanced networks will operate more reliably by creating highly stable connections in the market. Connected devices such as security cameras, locks, and other monitoring systems which largely depend on real-time updates, require reliable and stable network conditions. Thus, this technology is anticipated to grow exponentially in the coming years.
For instance, Telefonica and Idrica has been collaborated that will offer an 5G IoT solution for the management of the water cycle which allows monitoring real time information on several infrastructures and processes at individual place with the development of IoT technologies such as LTE-M, NB-IoT, and 5G Massive IoT. For instance, Verizon and Neptune Technology Group is working together to roll-out of LTE-M solutions to enable agile deployment.
