29.3% CAGR propels 5G Infrastructure Market to $94.45 Bn by 2032

5G Infrastructure Market Size Worth $94.45 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 29.3%

The global 5G infrastructure market size is expected to reach USD 94.95 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “5G Infrastructure Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Communication Infrastructure (Small Cell, Macro Cell); By Core Network Technology; By End-Use; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

5G infrastructure includes small cell and macro cell base stations for fifth-generation cellular networks. There are two types of infrastructure options: standalone and non-standalone (NSA). The non-standalone infrastructure utilizes the existing 4G LTE network, whereas the standalone infrastructure does not rely on LTE networks.

The 5G infrastructure consists of Radio Access Network (RAN), core, and transport technologies that enable high throughput, low latency, mobility, and increased connection density. The introduction of 5G is expected to open up numerous business opportunities for telecom operators, enterprises, stakeholders, and consumers alike.

The demand for 5G infrastructure is anticipated to rise significantly owing to the ongoing expansion of mobile broadband accessibility made possible by the introduction of advanced smartphones and other wireless devices. As a result, many businesses are focusing on growing their subscriber base by implementing expansion strategies such as providing value-added services in addition to lower prices.

During the pandemic, telecom operators expanded the availability of their 5G services to numerous nations. For instance, Globe Telecom, based in the Philippines, announced plans to accelerate the expansion of its 5G Roaming to various Middle Eastern and Asian countries.

Furthermore, 5G technology has the potential to enhance public safety and security in smart cities significantly. The 5G network's speed and responsiveness enable smart city systems to collect and analyze massive amounts of data from various sources, including intelligent traffic lights, video surveillance cameras, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
