Global 5G mmWave Chipset Market Report 2021-2026: Mobile

Dublin, November 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The report “5G mmWave Chipset Market 2021-2026” has been added to offer.

According to this latest market report, the 5G mmWave chipset market is expected to reach $ 56.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 37.3% over the next 5 years.

The study conducted on the 5G mmWave Chipsets (5G Millimeter Wave ICs) market provides an in-depth analysis of the current 5G mmWave deployments, ecosystem, spectrum, market overview, evolution, drivers and challenges, use cases and cost analysis. The study focuses on the mmWave 5G chipset value chain which includes the mmWave 5G baseband processor / modem, RF transceiver and RF front-end vendors.

The 5G mmWave chipset includes a baseband processor / modem and RFIC components such as RF transceivers and an RF front end. Mobile devices are expected to be the major contributors in the 5G mmWave chipset market due to the increasing availability of 5G mmWave compatible smartphones and other consumer devices.

mmWave offers broad spectrum and capability over the shortest distances for 5G with lower latencies. The high bands above 24 GHz are allocated to the 5G telecommunications infrastructure. The availability of new spectrum depends on the amount of spectrum released by regulators for use by service providers.

Spectrum allocations for mmWave are often extremely large, with 800 MHz or more per service provider and per band. The broad spectrum helps to provide high capacity delivery and better management of peak flows. The US market is a world leader in the use of mmWave spectrum for 5G, with all major US operators already offering 5G commercial services using the band. Limited 5G mmWave deployments have been witnessed in Asia-Pacific while Europe lags far behind.

5G chipsets are poised to become an integral part of 5G compatible products, such as smartphones, tablets, C-V2X devices, and CPEs. The 5G chipset by component has been segmented into baseband processor / modem and radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC).

RFIC was further segmented into RF transceiver and RFF front end. Companies such as Qualcomm provide modem-antenna solutions like the Snapdragon X55 5G mode, with its 5G mmWave antenna module (QTM525) and 5G mmWave SDX50M and QTM052 chipsets. Other companies such as Analog Devices and MediaTek provide a 5G system on a chip (SoC), and Samsung provides 5G RFICs and digital / long front-end (DFE) ASICs that support the 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands. .

Even the start-up ecosystem has grown rapidly in this market. Recently, Sivers Semiconductors announced the acquisition of start-up MixComm in a transaction valued at $ 135 million. This decision represents an investment by the Swedish company Sivers in the 5G market in mmWave spectrum bands.


  • 5G mmWave baseband processors are expected to have an installed base of 3.8 billion by 2026, mostly driven by mobile devices. The 24 GHz to 39 GHz frequency band will represent the largest 5G mmWave chipset market with over 90% market share by 2026.
  • RF and RF FE transceivers are expected to reach $ 10.4 billion and 23.5 billion TAM respectively in the 5G mmWave RFIC market by 2026.
  • 138,000 small cells are expected to be deployed by 2021, which is expected to increase to 3.25 million by 2026 given the dense deployment of small cells by operators for mmWave. FWA is expected to be a major contributor to the 5G mmWave infrastructure market as it was the first 5G use case. Apart from this, 5.1 million CPEs are expected to be deployed by 2026.
  • The 5G mmWave macrocell market is expected to reach $ 4.8 billion by 2026. North America is the largest contributor to macrocells with a share of around 83% in 2021, as large 5G mmWave deployments are ongoing in the United States.
  • In the 5G network, NFV will play an important role in providing operators with the flexibility to extend the functionality of their network as well as to ensure efficient and effective network operation. NFV will enable network slicing and distributed cloud, which would complement it to create flexible and programmable networks with an opportunity worth $ 3.1 billion
  • 202 million devices supporting 5G mmWave are expected to ship in 2021 and are expected to reach 1.1 billion units by 2026. The smartphone segment is expected to represent a significant share of this market. A new app could emerge in the form of robots and drones contributing over $ 110 million for 5G mmWave by 2026
  • The cost per square meter of an indoor 5G mid-band only network compared to a 5G mid-band mmWave plus network, assuming 10% of smartphones, laptops and security cameras are connected to 5G and 20% laptops and communications equipment are simultaneously active. The result shows that if standard communications equipment is deployed, the annual cost per square meter of a mid-range indoor network would be $ 2.86, while if advanced communications equipment is deployed, the cost per square meter of an mmWave plus mid-band array would work out to about $ 2.99.
