5G will lift mobile into a technology that changes the world.

5G mobile technology will, like electricity or the automobile, benefit entire economies and societies. This is because the global 5G standard (5G New Radio) will advance mobile from largely a set of technologies connecting people-to-people and people-to-information to a unified connectivity fabric connecting people to everything.

Enabling a broad set of industries.

The growth trajectory of sales enabled by 5G remains virtually unchanged, reaching $13.1T in 2035, despite the downshift in the long-term growth trajectory of the overall global economic output caused by the pandemic.

Jobs supporting a thriving value chain.

5G-enabled job growth is forecasted to be greater than previously expected - up from 22.3 to 22.8M over the next 15 years. 

Driving global GDP growth.

Global 5G CAPEX and R&D is up 10.8% from last year's forecast to $265B annually over the next 15 years.

Driving global GDP growth.
