5G Chipset Market Introduction & Overview
5G (fifth generation) is the next generation of wireless technology systems with faster upload & download speeds when compared with previous generations. The utilization of shorter frequencies (millimeter waves between 30GHz and 300GHz) is the reason that makes 5G faster. This high-band 5G spectrum offers anticipated improvements, not just in terms of speed but also quality, low latency, and capacity. The early testing of this technology demonstrates real-world speeds of 700-3000 Mbps (3 Gbps), which users may experience until 5G becomes commercially available. 5G will take seconds to download movies that took minutes with 4G networks. Although smartphones and other mobile devices are the obvious use cases of 5G, the technology finds several other applications. For example, the Internet of Things (IoT) would greatly benefit from the high speeds and the bandwidth that 5G provides. Robotic surgeries, autonomous vehicles, and critical infrastructure monitoring are some potential applications of 5G-enabled IoT. A 5G chipset is an important element of 5G-enabled smartphones, tablets, routers, and base stations. A part of the 5G chipset enables device users to access 5G networks and experience improved performances.
The 5G chipset market is driven by factors, such as reduced latency, greater bandwidth, maximum network capacity, low power utilization for cell phones as well as IoT devices, and extensive coverage. Also, enhanced cellular networking capabilities, increased mobile broadband utilization, increased process efficiency with the implementation of 5G, improved multitasking capabilities, and the demand for high internet speeds add to growth of the 5 G chipset market. Moreover, rapid advancements in mobile systems that are based on wireless internet, such as home automation devices, drones, self-driving cars, and others, are expected to contribute to the 5G chipset market.
However, setting the 5G standard requires very high infrastructure costs wherein multiple low-power base stations (small cells) need to be deployed to achieve higher network capabilities. This may hamper market growth to a certain extent.
The global 5G chipset market can be segmented into product, operational frequency, IC type, end-user, and region.
