The 5G Millimeter-wave Market Finally Becomes Clear

New report outlines successful and unsuccessful architectures and use cases

CAMPBELL, Calif., April 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Mobile Experts Inc. released technical analysis and market forecasts today, outlining the future for 5G millimeter-wave networks, smartphones, and Fixed Wireless Access. After the high expectations of the Verizon network resulted in disappointing smartphone data impact, new architectures and use cases are coming into the market. The new report outlines the architectural changes, the cost impact, and the likely future growth of mmWave in Fixed Wireless and in data offloading applications.

Mobile Experts has been tracking the mmWave market for more than 8 years, and our original investment thesis remains: 5G mmWave will support high capacity fixed wireless links and will supplement mobile networks in hotspots with high density of traffic. The market has been delayed by other deployments in C-band and other low bands, but future spectrum availability will be tight, resulting in stronger mmWave demand.

This new report covers networks, smartphones, CPEs, repeaters, and Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS) products, with global forecasts through 2028.

“Millimeter-wave performance has increased dramatically with improved transmitters for the uplink,” commented Dan McNamara, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts. “We have detailed analysis of this change and its impact on networks and all kinds of client devices. In the end, we expect this market to be driven by the relentless push for more capacity in FWA, plus dense areas such as stadiums, airports, and some hybrid private/public networks.”
