New York, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “5G in Defense Market: Segmented: By Communication Infrastructure, By Core Network Technology, By Network Type, By Platform And Region – Global Analysis of Market Size, Share & Trends For 2019–2021 And Forecasts To 2031” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06288792/?utm_source=GNW

Instant situational awareness anywhere on Earth, smart hypersonic weapons with on-the-fly retargeting, rich access to mission-critical data on the leading edge of the battlefield, and unmanned drones that can fly safely alongside passenger aircraft in commercial airspace are all possibilities for 5G. 5G promises ubiquitous high-speed data connectivity, which will enable vastly improved intelligence, reconnaissance (ISR), surveillance, as well as faster and more secure command and control, more efficient logistics, swarming unmanned vehicles, and widespread use of augmented and virtual reality for simulation, mission rehearsal, and training.

Market Highlights

Global 5G in Defense Market is expected to register a remarkable CAGR of 64.1% by the end of 2031.

Increasing country spending on 5G technologies is predicted to take the global 5Gin defense market forward throughout the forecast period. Increased need for IoT, greater dependency on big data for decision making, and growing demand for automation in defense and military applications, among many other factors, are projected to boost global sales of the stated market.

Global 5G in Defense Market: Segments

The small Cell segment is expected to hold a higher CAGR over the forecast period 2021-31

The expansion of the small cell segment can be ascribed to 5G network operators’ large-scale deployment of tiny cells. The data communication speed is projected to considerably grow as the 5G network is further deployed. Small cells are expected to play a key role in the market for 5G communication infrastructure since they can aid with 5G deployment.

The Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) segment to expected to register a maximum CAGR during 2021-31

With the increased use of MEC-enabled 5G wireless systems that will offer low latency and high bandwidth access to networks, the Mobile Edge Computing section of the Core Network Technology category is predicted to grow at a quicker rate. Furthermore, MEC technology enables data gathering and processing at the network’s edge, simplifying real-time analytics, minimizing unnecessary data storage, and enhancing network security.

Market Dynamics


Increasing adoption of connected and autonomous devices

Up to one million devices can be supported by 5G technology in an area of about one square kilometer. This means that a 5G network may connect various devices, such as sensors, to each other. All autonomous robots or platforms rely on a network to send and receive data. This data is evaluated and then sent to the systems over the network, which are subsequently used by the automated systems to take action. Such systems will perform more efficiently with a network that has a higher speed and lower latency.

Technological Advancements in 5G are another major booster

The demand for fast and reliable transmission networks has increased as technology evolves around the world to allow the connectivity of advanced devices including robots, sensors, drones, and autonomous vehicles utilized by defense agencies. The 5G network offers real-time connectivity, machine-to-machine interaction, high network speed, and other capabilities that aid in the interconnection of smart devices used by homeland security and intelligence organizations in intelligence and surveillance activities.


Lack of in-depth knowledge of technology restrains the market growth

5G infrastructure for defense is still in its early stages of development, companies working on it must deal with challenges such as access to information, experimenting with military platforms, and the accessibility of regulations for development and testing, among other things. Few restricting issues include a dearth of competent labor and the military’s early adoption stage of 5G technology with little in-depth knowledge of the technology.

Global 5G in Defense Market: Regions

Due to growing investments in 5G technology by the US Department of Defense, North America is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. The United States is expected to be the world’s top developer and operator of 5G technology, with a substantial share of the worldwide market going to the North American region. In defense, 5G technology improves the processing and functionality of ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) systems, enables new command and control systems, improve augmented and virtual reality applications, modernizes maintenance processes, and improves logistics supply efficiency using technologies like blockchain.

Impact of COVID-19 on 5G in the Defense Market

The COVID-19 outbreak wreaked havoc on economies around the world, particularly in the defense sector, where high-investment technology like 5G is being deployed. Due to the current economic climate and disruptions in the supply chain of crucial components, the development and testing of 5G technologies for the defense sector have been placed on hold. Due to a delay in spectrum auctions, a lag in regulatory timescales, a constrained workforce for network roll-out, decreased capital and operating expenditures, and a decline in technological breakthroughs, the pandemic had a moderate impact on communication systems suppliers and operators.
