The China 5G market is anticipated to show a triple-digit growth rate because it is already leading the smartphone market.
Commercialization of 5G services is expected across China by 2019, and commercial deployments of 5G are also planned by 2020. 5G networks are likely to enhance mobile broadband services, support ultra HD videos, and launch augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) application. China is expected to be the market leader in VR owing to its early adoption, providing its customers with a supplement experience of 4G networks at its initial phase.
The China 5G market is classified into SIM cellular connections and SIM M2M cellular connections. These are further divided into data per user, and 5G data traffic for each category In China SIM cellular connections hold the majority of the market share, whereas SIM M2M cellular connections are anticipated to grow at an increasing rate.
China is expected to hold a significant market share and it is expected to exceed 400 million connections by 2025. This may be because of large economies of scale that will reduce the price of 5G devices. Companies like China Telecom, and China Unicom are aggressively trying to capture market share by transferring subsidies from 4G to 5G.
Key Growth Factors
- The major growth factors of the China 5G market are continuous evolution towards enhanced bandwidth, lower latency, enhanced security and openness of mobile networks.
