Small cells segment of 5G market in aviation is expected to grow at a higher rate from 2021 to 2026
Based on communication infrastructure, the small cell market is estimated to grow at higher CAGR over the forecast period. Improved capacity and increased coverage of 5g services through small cells are anticipated to drive small cells segment market for aviation.
5G infrastructure for aircraft segment projected to grow at highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026
Based on end-use, 5G infrastructure for aircraft is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the rise in the development of smart connected aircraft across the globe. 5G infrastructure and services would be used in various flight operations as well as drone operations, such as real-time data acquisition and monitoring and in-flight entertainment. In 2018, Air France (France) anticipated the initial cost of deploying 5G to range between USD 5 million and USD 6 million in aircraft, and between USD 4 million and USD 5 million at airports.
Ultra-reliable low latency communication/massive machine-type communications (URLLC/MMTC) segment projected to grow at highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026
Based on technology, ultra-reliable low latency communication/massive machine-type communications (URLLC/MMTC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. mMTC has been developed already as part of 3GPP Release 13/14 Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies, which cover NB-IoT which would help in developing a latent free, end-to-end 5G connection. The rise in demand for a reliable and consistent end-to-end internet connection in aircrafts is expected to drive the growth for URLLC/MMTC. Some of the prominent use cases for MMTC and URLLC w.r.t. airport and aircraft are ATC communication and navigation, remote monitoring, connected sensors, inflight AR-VR streaming, autonomous aircraft, and mission-critical broadbands (real-time video, media sharing, and other mission-critical end-user applications).
Asia Pacific 5G market in aviation is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026
Based on the region, the Asia Pacific 5G market in aviation is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The market growth in this region is primarily due to the increase in air passenger traffic from countries such as India, China, Japan, and other parts of the APAC region, along with the rising demand for better passenger experience. According to CAPA, four out of ten carriers with most long routes belong to APAC. With the rise in long-haul flights, there is a growing demand for a fast internet connection that is consistent throughout the flight duration. This is a major factor boosting the growth of 5G market in aviation in this region.
