5G Chipset Market by IC Type (RFIC, ASIC, SoC, mmWave IC, Cellular IC), by Frequency Range (Sub-1GHz, 1GHz-6GHz, Above 6GHz), by End User (Automotive, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Other), by Region (Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America, North America) – Global Forecast (2019 to 2027)


The Global 5G Chipset Market is estimated to reach USD 32.6 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 49.1%.

Chipset can be defined as an electronic component in which numerous integrated circuits are interconnected. The chipset is used for controlling the flow of data from the central processing units to then external devices. 5G is fifth generation of mobile network, which is better than previous generation in various aspects. 5G technology give users multi-Gbps peaks, very low latency, and uniform experience. As per International Telecommunication Union (ITU) guidelines, downlink peak data rate of 5G technology should be 20 Gbps and for uplink it should be 10 Gbps. The chipsets, which can perform on the 5G bandwidth, are called as 5G chipsets, these are used in smartphones, and internet connected devices, and other internet dependent products and services.

5G CHIPSET MARKET: Drivers & Challenges

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) Devices  

Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding rapidly in every aspect of the daily life. The on-device intelligence is obtaining speed and the number of devices being interconnected are increasing exponentially. IoT devices works on speed of Internet and connection to data services. Deployment of 5G network may increase the speed of operation of devices compared to conventional mobile data networks. Moreover, concepts such as smart factory and smart cities are also attaining momentum that can surge the demand of 5G technology.

Thus, increasing adoption of IoT devices may contribute in the growth of the 5G chipset market, during the forecast period.

  • Increasing Demand of High Speed Internet 

Mobile data services are used largely helps in interaction of users with services such as high definition videos, augmented reality, and mobile cloud. The advancement in internet services may also result in increasing mobile traffic worldwide opening window for further development in the industry. Implementation of 5G may ease interconnection of user and devices by providing high speed, less power consumption of devices and low latency. The number devices connected in the network can be increased drastically as 5G can cater large number of devices without delay in speed.

Thus, increasing demand of high-speed internet may contribute in the growth of the 5G chipset market, during the forecast period.

Market Challenges:

  • Policy and Regulatory Modernisation

Currently there are no structured governance framework regarding installation and deployment of 5G technology and its infrastructure. The local and national governing authorities can make the deployment easier by defining policy framework thatmay help in attaining investments. Moreover, simplifying permit processes and regulations regarding building and buying signals by eliminating red tapism can also help operators. Government authorities can bring together network operators, investors, local governing officials, and private sector by modernising policies and regulations.

Thus, policy and regulatory modernisation may be a challenging factor for the growth of the 5G chipset market, during the forecast period.
