The investment will help companies to obtain a vast customer base in the market. In addition, these market players are strategically focusing on mergers and acquisitions to strengthen their foothold in the global market. The prime players profiled in the market are Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
COVID-19 Analysis of 5G Technology Industry
The pandemic has paused the progression of the 5G foundation in numerous countries. The steps taken to restrict the spread of the disease have affected the timing of the 5G infrastructure standard finalization. For instance, the Department of Telecommunication of India has deferred its spectrum auction for the year 2021. This evolution has unfavorably affected numerous vendors and telecommunication operators present in the business.
Few vendors are converging on an intrusive 5G rollout plan in the year 2021, owing to the inclinations of 5G to serve various sectors during this crisis. In the healthcare sector, a 5G intelligent robot can assist healthcare in conducting remote treatment. For instance, in China, Wuhan, several hospitals use a 5G network to accommodate real-time aid to patients in inaccessible areas. Consequently, 5G has immense potential to support during crises. However, the delay in the 5G deployment is limiting its use. The 5G market globally is expected to gain exponential growth post the pandemic.
