India 5G Market to Witness Accelerated Growth at High CAGR of 71.5% during 2022–2030

Published | 21 October 2022

India 5G market is expected to witness exhilarating growth due to a highly lucrative combination of favorable demographics, massive adoption of high-speed network, and exponential growth in data usage in the country.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, expects India 5G Market size to expand at a robust CAGR of 71.5% during the forecast period between 2022 and 2030. The world is becoming more interconnected. Demand for effective network infrastructure is growing as smartphones, wearables, homes, smart cities, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and augmented reality (AR) become more widely adopted. During the forecast period, technology advancements and expanding infrastructures are expected to hasten the exponential growth of India 5G market. Rising demand for no-buffer live video streaming, increased social media usage, and other similar services are significantly boosting the expansion of India 5G market. However, the excessive cost of upgrading legacy infrastructure to 5G infrastructure as well as privacy and security concerns could limit the growth of India 5G market. On the other hand, government initiatives to strengthen communication infrastructure is expected to provide a plethora of growth opportunities for India 5G market participants.

India 5G Market – Overview

The next-generation wireless access technology, known as 5G, can connect billions of devices and promises higher data capacities and speeds of more than 10 gigabytes (GB) per second. Mobile networks today must accommodate a wider range of requirements than ever before in the "Everything on Mobile" era. Globally, 5G is expected to redefine various industry verticals, including transportation, healthcare, and logistics. In contrast to 3G and 4G, which improved data transfer speeds for smartphones, 5G will enable communication between an infinite number of connected devices. The key feature includes a throughput speed of up to 10 GB per second, a dramatic reduction in latency to less than 1 millisecond (ms) from the current 50 ms, and an exponential rise in the number of connections. Higher throughput translates to faster consumer network speeds. Applications that would not have been possible with slower response times will now be made possible. For instance, due to their remoteness, a sizable portion of the population in India is outside the typical reach of specialists. The 5G network's low latency may even make remote robotic surgeries possible.

For many decades, technology advancements have resulted in profound changes in human lives. The mobile data revolution has been the most significant in India over the last decade. India is expected to lead the digital revolution for several valid reasons. Applications and services based on technologies, such as IoT, automation, and AI will drive the growth of Indian economy. India wants to build 100 smart cities with sophisticated utilities and power systems. The services sector is expected to benefit from all these applications, as more industries demand cloud computing, Big Data, AI, and machine-learning (ML) applications. India-based large new-age companies, such as Ola, Flipkart, and Zomato, have demonstrated their ability to develop competitive applications and compete with international giants fairly. India businesses will have an opportunity to experiment alongside their international rivals with 5G.
