5G is Now 1/3 of All Phone Sales

by Neil Mawston | Nov 11, 2021

Recent research (here) from our Emerging Techs (EDT) service finds that 5G penetrated more than one-third of all mobile phone shipments worldwide for the first time ever in Q3 2021. It is a record high.

That ratio will top 50% in 2022.

5G phones have been a huge success during the Covid pandemic, providing a much-needed boost for the likes of Qualcomm, MediaTek, Apple, OPPO, and many others since 2019.

Inevitably, as 5G crosses the 50% threshold in the coming quarters, growth will slow, and industry chatter will turn to possible 5.5G upgrades or next-gen 6G handsets.
