Thus, the advent of Industry 4.0 is likely to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Drivers: Development of Smart Infrastructure

Smart cities, for example, are conceptual models that aim to supply a combination of cutting-edge infrastructure and services. A smart city has ICT infrastructure to improve and improve the effectiveness of city activities and services. Only existing cities that adhere to the following components can be considered smart: smart utilities, smart citizen services, and smart buildings.

Smart cities deploy the Internet of Things (IoT) to collect real-time data and respond with quick and lower-cost solutions. Digital city environments, in general, are built on ICT frameworks that interconnect a variety of specialized connections of sensors, connected automobiles, mobile devices, home appliances, telecommunication gateways, and data centers.

As a result, the success of smart city projects is strongly reliant on numerous technologies—cloud, data communications, sensors, and mobility—that make up the Internet of Things. Due to the high need for quicker connectivity and communication, 5G standalone (SA) services may have a bright future.

Restraint: Stability Adoption of Wi-Fi Communication Technology

Wi-Fi communications are now widely regarded as the de-facto networking technology among businesses for providing on-site mobility to employees, linked devices, guests, and contract workers. Organizations' working productivity has grown due to advancements and innovations in wireless technologies and devices. Workers' use of Wi-Fi-equipped tablets and smart devices has enhanced company efficiency. According to an Intel white paper issued in 2016, manufacturing workers and technicians have improved their productivity.

Many businesses rely on Wi-Fi equipment to run their day-to-day operations. Employees may stay connected from any part of the workplace or building due to the extensive Wi-Fi coverage. Operating costs are reduced, and a good return on investment is realized when wireless products and smart devices are installed in businesses. The various advantages of Wi-Fi technology and its widespread acceptance among companies are crucial barriers to the market's expected growth.

Opportunities: Network Slicing to Provide New Opportunities for Operators

The whole point is that network operators can make the most of it if they correctly identify the professional markets, their precise technical requirements in terms of data rate, tolerable latency, and the massive number of connections in sending and receiving packets, and provide them with what they need with professional service level agreements.

Even though many independent private networks service corporations, many enterprise clients are not ready to invest in and build their networks. Network-level isolated infrastructure is not relevant to them. Service level assurance is far more critical for them. This allows operators to cope with them and give Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) choices by including the 'network slicing' function, enabling the operator to ensure corporate customers have a specific degree of service by applying functional level separation.

Over LTE networks, several MNOs use a technique known as "network slicing." This feature gives the operator access to network slices in the RAN and allows them to connect the slices to respond to any application. With 5G, MNOs will more easily divide resources and deliver distinct classes of rate, range, security, and other technical details to business-critical and mission-critical use-cases.
