BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$aapl #5GAccording to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global 5G
smartphone shipments will grow from 2 million units in 2019 to reach an
billion in 2025
. The 5G category will be the fastest-growing
sector of the global smartphone industry for the next decade. Growth
opportunities are huge for companies such as Qualcomm, Intel and Apple.

Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “We
forecast global 5G smartphone shipments to grow from 2 million units in
2019 to an impressive 1.5 billion in 2025. We forecast global 5G
smartphone shipments to grow at an average annual rate of 250 percent
between 2019 and 2025. The 5G category will be the fastest-growing
sector of the worldwide smartphone industry for the next decade.”

Ken Hyers, Director at Strategy Analytics, added, “The next generation
of smartphones that can access high-speed 5G mobile networks represents
a huge growth opportunity for carriers, infrastructure suppliers, device
vendors, chipset makers and software developers. We expect brands such
as Qualcomm, Intel, InterDigital, Ericsson, Apple, Samsung, Vodafone and
China Mobile to be among the companies at the forefront of the upcoming
5G smartphone wave.”

Boris Metodiev, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics, added, “We predict
the first 5G smartphones to launch commercially in advanced mobile
countries such as Japan, South Korea and United States by 2019. However,
we caution that 5G technology standards today are not yet market-ready,
while previous launches of 3G and 4G smartphones in the past often
arrived much later than promised. The smartphone industry is
understandably very excited about 5G right now, but history suggests
early 5G products may well suffer technical or financial teething
problems, and the industry should be prepared for future possible delays
in initial smartphone or network launches of several months, perhaps up
to a year.”
