PALM BEACH, Florida, Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A report commissioned by Intel and conducted by Ovum, predicted that 5G will represent 80 percent of wireless media revenues by 2028 and that nearly $3 trillion in cumulative revenue opportunities will be spurred by wireless technology from 2019-2028 and experiences enabled by 5G networks will account for nearly half of it (close to $1.3 trillion). The report: "… cites 2025 as the "tipping point" for 5G, predicting that by then, 57 percent of global wireless media revenues will be generated by the next-gen cellular standard, which promises bandwidth up to 100 Gbps. With speeds potentially up to 1,000x faster than the current 4G protocol, the buffering issues that come with livestreaming and large downloads will be a thing of the past. 5G's speed will also enable the growth of immersive services such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), which will generate more than $140 billion in cumulative revenues between 2021 and 2028. Ovum predicts that gaming will be at the forefront of 5G-led innovations, with AR gaming comprising annual revenues of nearly $36 billion globally, or more than 90 percent of 5G AR revenues." Active companies in the markets this week include Hawkeye Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: HWKE), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), Vonage Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: VG), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG), CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL).
By 2028, new "immersive," currently non-existent applications will provide an annual revenue bucket of $67 billion, which is the value of the entire current global mobile media market--video, music and games–in 2017, Ovum predicts. Another report from Gartner, added that the rollout of high-speed 5G mobile service is set to drive growth of augmented reality (AR) shopping to 100 million consumers by next year. Retailers will add AR technology, which overlays digital images on a person's view of the real world, to their stores and e-commerce channels to provide more immersive experiences for shoppers. It continued: "Almost half (46%) of retailers plan to deploy either AR or virtual reality (VR) technology, which provides a completely immersive view of a computer-generated world, by next year, per the Gartner report shared with Mobile Marketer. The technologies can help shoppers virtually try on products through advanced graphical visualization and simulation.
