Outlook on the 5G Market in China 2018-2025 - Drivers are Continuous Evolution Towards Enhanced Bandwidth, Lower Latency, Enhanced Security and Openness of Mobile Networks -


The "China
5G Market (2018-2025)"
report has been added to's

The China 5G market is anticipated to show a triple-digit growth rate
because it is already leading the smartphone market.

Commercialization of 5G services is expected across China by 2019, and
commercial deployments of 5G are also planned by 2020. 5G networks are
likely to enhance mobile broadband services, support ultra HD videos,
and launch augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) application.
China is expected to be the market leader in VR owing to its early
adoption, providing its customers with a supplement experience of 4G
networks at its initial phase.

The China 5G market is classified into SIM cellular connections and SIM
M2M cellular connections. These are further divided into data per user,
and 5G data traffic for each category In China SIM cellular connections
hold the majority of the market share, whereas SIM M2M cellular
connections are anticipated to grow at an increasing rate.

China is expected to hold a significant market share and it is expected
to exceed 400 million connections by 2025. This may be because of large
economies of scale that will reduce the price of 5G devices. Companies
like China Telecom, and China Unicom are aggressively trying to capture
market share by transferring subsidies from 4G to 5G.

Key Growth Factors

  • The major growth factors of the China 5G market are continuous
    evolution towards enhanced bandwidth, lower latency, enhanced security
    and openness of mobile networks.
  • Rapid Population Penetration: Considering the growing global
    smartphone and mobile internet adoption, mobile internet penetration
    in China is said to have doubled over the last five years, reaching
    just less than half of the population by the end of 2016. This implies
    that the future scope is immense considering the present scenario.


  • The region faces growth challenges, such as regulatory pressures, and
    new operator launches.
  • As China is an early adopter of 5G networks, it is likely to face the
    challenge of less matured devices, which might limit the adoption of

Key Players

  • China Mobile
  • China Telecom
  • China Unicom
