USA & Verizon Wireless Lead 5G Phones in 2016

by Neil Mawston | Sep 08, 2015

News emerged this week that Verizon Wireless will be field-trialing a basic 5G network in parts of the United States in 2016. Technology partners for the test will include Ericsson, Cisco, Nokia and others.

This is a small but important move for the 5G phone market. It confirms the US as a pioneering 5G country. And it shows the mobile world is plowing full-steam ahead with its plans to make 5G the industry's next major growth driver through the 2020s.

Our WDS (Devices) service expects global 5G phone shipments to grow sharply from 2020 onwards, led by companies such as Samsung and Qualcomm. More analysis and forecasts can be viewed by clients here.
