Pioneer Consulting Asia-Pacific releases its COVID-19 adjusted 5G handsets industry forecasts for key Asian markets: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore & Thailand

Overview - 5G Handset Forecasts

The 5G Mobile handset penetration in Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore is projected to reach 12%, 16% and 73% in 2023, respectively, with Singapore expected to see the highest adoption rate of 5G handsets over the next 3 years.

Catalysts for Growth in the 5G Handset Market

The growth of 5G Mobile Handset Users is largely driven by economic recovery post-Covid-19, telcos’ deployment of consumer 5G service, and the availability of affordable lower-end 5G mobile handsets.

There are currently no reliable forecasts for 5G mobile handset users in key Asian countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, despite these countries having experienced unprecedented growth in smartphone penetration and having started 5G rollouts / deployment over the past few years.

 

As leading experts in digital content sectors - including 5G - in Asia, PCA has developed proprietary forecasts to provide its clients with guidance on how the 5G handset market will develop over the next 3 years.
