Report Scope & Overview

5G Chipset Market size was valued at USD 18.68 Bn in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 136.38 Bn by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 28.21% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

A 5G Chipset is a collection of electrical components used to create an integrated circuit. A chipset is also known as a data flow management system. The job of a chipset is to regulate the flow of information that flows through the computer in order for it to work properly. 5G refers to the fifth generation of cellular networking technology. 5G technology aims to provide more data to a broader range of devices. A 5G chipset is an important component of 5G devices since it is engaged in various computing activities. Smartphones, portable hotspots, IoT devices, and, increasingly, laptop PCs with mobile network capability use 5G chipsets to transmit 5G packets.

Due to the severe impact on major actors working in the supply chain, the COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant influence on the expansion of the reef shark chipset solution in 2020. However, one of the significant drivers driving market expansion during the COVID-19 epidemic is an increase in demand for three-dimensional printing solutions across key industries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the market was primarily hampered by a lack of trained workers and project delays or cancellations owing to partial or total lockdowns throughout the world. Furthermore, after COVID-19, a spike in the deployment of smart infrastructure solutions in the automotive, retail, healthcare, energy & utilities, and consumer electronics industries is likely to boost the 5G chipset market opportunity.


The market is classified into four types of integrated circuits: radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), cellular integrated circuits (Cellular ICs), and millimeter-wave integrated circuits (MWICs) (mm-Wave IC). In terms of revenue, the application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) segment led the market in 2021, and this trend is likely to continue over the forecast period.

It's fragmented into three groups based on operational frequency: sub-6 GHz, 26-39 GHz, and over 39 GHz., and over 39 GHz. In 2021, the sub-6 GHz sector generated the most revenue, and it is likely to dominate the market in the next years. The market is divided into three categories based on product: devices, customer premises equipment (CPE), and network infrastructure equipment. In 2021, the devices segment generated the most revenue, and it is expected to gain substantial market share throughout the projected period.

The market is divided into automotive & transportation, energy & utilities, healthcare, retail, consumer electronics, industrial automation, and others based on industry vertical. In 2021, the consumer electronics category dominated the 5G chipset market. However, from 2022 to 2028, the BFSI category is predicted to increase at a rapid rate.

15. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
