Market Overview- Global 5G Chipset Market 

Market Drivers

The rising demand for mobile data services is anticipated to boost the demand for 5G mobile broadband technology, which in turn, propel the market growth of the 5G chipset market. The non-stop development of mobile networks has enabled customers to enjoy speedy data transfer rates with low latency. Demand for mobile data offerings is generally pushed by the developing use of services and applications in both consumer electronic gadgets and business-to-business (B2B) communication systems which might be presently using/testing data-in-depth packages which include virtual and augmented reality, and 3-D and ultra-HD video content. To support the growing data traffic, greater bandwidth is required. It is anticipated that 5G could offer 1,000 times greater bandwidth than its predecessor mobile broadband generations 4G and 3G. Therefore, the developing mobile data traffic could pressure network operators to offer greater bandwidth to consumers; this aspect is anticipated to propel the demand for 5G mobile broadband technology in the future. So, driving the growth of the global 5G chipset market.

Market Opportunity 

The speed and reliability of 5G are expected to have a massive impact on machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT. Key reasons for the increased adoption of new M2M technologies are better connectivity for smooth communication and low power requirement. The existing capacity of mobile networks must be able to handle billions of nodes that are expected to ascend in the next couple of years to achieve effective M2M communication. Currently, the network capacity is incapable of handling M2M and human-based communications, as well as their different communication patterns such as latency time. Owing to that, a next-level cellular network for mobile communication, featuring hyper-connectivity and larger bandwidth, is required (e.g., 5G network). M2M communication technology will be widely used in heavy manufacturing industries and process industries (e.g., food industries) to increase the efficiency of different processes and reduce human interference with machines. M2M communication is thus expected to drive the 5G chipset market. 

Market Restraints

Prices of smartphone chipsets that support 5G are likely to be more expensive than the 4G ones available currently. First-generation 5G chipsets were limited to premium smartphones from 2019. Volume deployment of 5G devices based on second-generation chipsets is being seen in 2020, and third-generation chipsets will enable performance-optimized 5G devices in 2021. Qualcomm offers 5G support to its flagship Snapdragon 8-series SoC only, and a limited number of premium smartphones use it. The company has planned to significantly expand the 5G line-up by offering 5G the company’s 7 series and 6 series line-ups. Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 690 are already available for mid-range smartphones. However, the company has not revealed any plans for 4 series chipset that are used in cheaper phones. The addition of 5G to cheaper phones would give the network technology a much broader audience. Qualcomm and MediaTek are expected to lower the prices of 5G chipsets for mid-range smartphones.

Market Growth Challenges
