This 5G applications market report is the most comprehensive research available addressing the LTE and 5G application and service market. The report evaluates cellular broadband applications and services including revenue and usage (subscribers/users) by LTE, LTE Advanced, LTE Advanced Pro, and 5G. The report also assesses the LTE and 5G applications market in private wireless networks as well as market opportunities for Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) in public and private networks including the market for computing as a service.

Select Report Findings

  • Mobile Edge Computing will be key for private wireless implementation

  • MEC will also be important for public consumer applications, but lower priority

  • 5GNR market for private wireless in industrial automation will reach $5.1B by 2026

  • 5G applications market for enterprise and industrial segments will exceed $42.2B globally by 2026

  • Global revenue for LTE-based enterprise and SMB mobility apps and services will reach $6.7B by 2026

  • Key 5G solution areas for business will be IoT connectivity, SMB/corporate mobility, and fixed wireless
