Market Insight

The Department of Defense is seeing 5G technology as a true game-changer for military forces across the globe, able to one day turn the tide of battle and give a side an insurmountable edge. It is not like the way that the military heavily invested in radar technology during World War II. 5G also could give the military broad access to augmented and virtual reality, 5G smart warehousing, distributed command, and control, and dynamic spectrum use. Countries like the United States, Europe, China, and Russia are now integrating 5G technologies into their military networks. 5G does much more than boost the performance of existing 4G networks. It offers the military an opportunity to develop completely new use cases and benefit from another digital transformation that began in the civil world. 5G will then quick-connect phone calls and fast movie downloads, particularly for the U.S. military. The COVID-19 outbreak had a significant impact on the deployment of high investment technologies such as the 5G in defense across the world. Economic activity had declined drastically as many countries had opted for the closure of non-essential businesses in order to spread this infectious disease. R&D of 5G technologies had to be put on hold due to the economic crisis and moreover as the country boundaries were being kept closed supply chain activities got disrupted it. Due to the pandemic, there has been a delay in moving towards 5G, in other geographies and parts of countries. In developing economic countries, due to the impact on the economy, governments had to defer the spectrum auctions as well. While the communications industry saw a dip in the short term, it will be the first to start showing signs of recovery in the upcoming years.


The growing adoption of autonomous and connected devices will drive the market growth of 5G in defense market.5G technology can connect more than millions of devices within a short-range. Basically, all the autonomous systems or platforms work upon the network through which the data is been transferred. Moreover, countries like China and Israel are operating 5 Technologies in their military operations. The lack of standards and protocols for use of 5G can hamper its market growth. Shortage of skill full manpower is also an issue faced by defense firms as 5G is still in the starting phase there is no adequate knowledge of technologies related to it. The growing adoption related to IoT thing will provide an opportunity to grow in the upcoming years. The various factors are transforming into various industries by connecting several types of devices, appliances, systems, and services. IoT is amongst those used cases that the 5G network would support easily


Among the regions, North America accounted for the largest share in the global 5G in Defense Market. Due to the rising investment is done by the US Department of Defense in the development of 5G technology. Moreover, the growing use of connected systems through IoT, and the distribution of a wide frequency band to the US military has opened new opportunities for developers in this region to develop the 5G components and improve the efficiency of the 5G system. However, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow with the highest rate in the global 5G in Defense Market over the forecast period. This region is striving to improve the processing and functioning of ISR (intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance) systems
