This report projects that 5G will cover up to 65 percent of the global population by the end of 2025 and handle 45 percent of global mobile data traffic. The report said that smartphone traffic in India is expected to grow because of two factors – high growth in the number of smartphone users and an increase in average usage per smartphone.

5G subscriptions to top 260 Crores globally

Despite the continuous push for 5G, LTE is expected to dominate the Indian market with about 80 percent of mobile subscriptions by the end of 2025. The report expects LTE subscriptions are forecast to increase by 15 Crores during 2019 and pass GSM / EDGE as the dominant technology. It adds that mobile broadband technologies will account for 57 percent of mobile subscriptions at the end of the year and the share of smartphone subscriptions is expected to have increased from 48 percent to 54 percent.

The report expects the average monthly data-traffic-per-smartphone to increase from the current figure of 7.2 GB to 24 GB by the end of 2025, in part driven by new consumer behavior, such as Virtual Reality (VR) streaming. With 7.2 GB per month, one can stream 21 minutes of HD video (1280 x 720) daily, while 24 GB would allow streaming 30 minutes of HD video with an additional six minutes of VR each day.

The forecasts of the report include the total number of cellular IoT connections now seen at 500 Crores by the end of 2025 from 130 Crores by end 2019 – a compound annual growth rate of 25 percent. NB-IoT and Cat-M technologies are estimated to account for 52 percent of these cellular IoT connections in 2025.
