“Amongst network type, the 5G standalone segment held a prominent share of the market in 2020”

By network type, the market is bifurcated into 5G standalone and 5G non-standalone. Among these two, the 5G standalone type accounted for a prominent share of the global 5G IoT market in 2020 and is expected to grow at a substantial CAGR mainly owing to some built-in capabilities such as network slicing, ultra-low latency, control and user panel separation (CUPS), multi-Gbps support, virtualization, and others. The 5G Standalone network type is a brand new wireless network for 5G networks. It mainly includes a 5G radio access network (RAN) and a 5G core network. This network type is expected to be more effective than the non-standalone 5G network type.

“Asia-Pacific to grow at a strong CAGR during the forecast period”

Asia-Pacific 5G IoT market is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The region is dynamically changing in terms of the introduction of new technologies in various fields. The growth of infrastructure and increased deployment of 4G and 5G networks in APAC, especially in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, India, and China, presents great opportunities for the implementation of 5G IoT services. For instance, According to GSMA Intelligence, China had 480 Mn 5G connections by the end of 2021, which was expected to grow to 650 Mn in just one year, accounting for more than 60% of the world’s 5G mobile connections.
