The COVID-19 epidemic has had a severe impact on the electronics and semiconductor industries. Due to a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, business and industrial facilities in several nations have been shuttered, and are projected to stay closed in the first quarter of 2022. Furthermore, the partial or total lockdown has affected the worldwide supply chain, making it difficult for manufacturers to reach their clients. The COVID-19 epidemic has had a global influence on society and the economy. The impact of this pandemic is growing by the day, hurting the worldwide industry. The crisis has caused stock market uncertainty, which has led to a drop in corporate confidence, a major slowdown in supply chains, and an increase in customer concern.

Due to the suspension of industrial plants, Asian and European nations under lockdown have lost a significant amount of business and money. The emergence of the COVID-19 illness has had a significant impact on production and manufacturing operations, which has slowed the expansion of the 5G infrastructure industry. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an influence on the electronics industry, since production facilities have halted, increasing demand for electronics and semiconductor items in these areas. It has a significant influence on manufacturing in Europe and Chinese component exports, both of which limit the market opportunity for 5G infrastructure. Once the economy starts to recover, demand for new and innovative products is projected to increase.

Because network providers may deploy Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in multiple locations and there is no need to acquire specialized or application-specific hardware devices to provide new services, the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) segment is predicted to develop at the quickest rate. As a result of the move to software on standard servers, it lowers the overall cost of network equipment.

Based on Communication Infrastructure, the 5G Infrastructure Market is segmented into Macro Cell, Small Cell, and Radio Access Network. Because tiny cells make up the majority of 5G networks, the small cell sector is predicted to dominate the 5G Infrastructure Market by 2020. These little cells can save money by avoiding the need for a costly rooftop system and installation. Furthermore, these small cells have the ability to reduce power consumption while improving performance.

The 5G Infrastructure Market is divided into RFIC Chips, ASIC Chips, Field-Programmable Gate Array, Millimeter Wave Technology Chips, and Distributed Antenna System segments based on chipset type. Over the anticipated period, the ASIC Chips sector is expected to develop at the highest CAGR of the whole segmentation. ASIC chips are intended to perform a specific function again and over again. The growing demand for ASIC chips, particularly in developed countries, is projected to propel market expansion in the coming years.

In 2021, the enterprise/corporate category dominated the market, accounting for the majority of sales. This is due to the rising need for faster data bandwidth for use cases such as uninterrupted virtual meetings, seamless connectivity during cloud computing, and establishing a smart workplace by connecting IoT devices. The demand for seamless connectivity for smart home applications, cloud-based Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) gaming, and other consumer applications have prompted the deployment of 5G infrastructure. Because of the urgent requirement to establish speedy contact with first responders during crises, the implementation of 5G infrastructure is rising throughout government and public safety institutions. Even when the epidemic is contained, digital services such as telemedicine and remote patient monitoring will remain popular, assuring continued industry development.

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.
