Smartphones are a major revenue contributor for 5G chipsets, accounting for a 35.4% share of the total 5G chipset market in 2019, with an estimated revenue of $595 million. The vertical is expected to grow significantly toward the end of 2020 and early 2021. Revenues from 5G smartphones have been forecast to reach $18.6 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 77.5% from 2019.

“5G smartphone shipments are expected to begin with high-end devices, as announced by leading OEMs,” noted Karunakaran. “However, volume shipments will gain momentum only from 2021, when mid- and low-end smartphones enter the market.”

5G chipset and device manufacturers can also explore the opportunities in:

  • Providing a cost-effective solution for the deployment of a high-speed, low-latency network for industrial use.
  • Developing automotive-grade reliable devices and networks for autonomous vehicles.
  • Focusing on cost-optimized solutions that can process large volumes of data and communicate quickly.
  • Improving the AI and ML capabilities in system on chip (SoC) applications.
