Prior to COVID-19, digital had momentum. Now, across industries, the need to accelerate digital transformation is greater. Connectivity plays a vital role in the evolution of digital, and this has been seen in both fixed and wireless over the last decade. While the 5G business case was strong before, it’s even stronger now.
At KPMG we believe 5G and edge computing technologies will be key to the global economic recovery.
Our research with IDC looked at who is in the emerging 5G and edge computing ecosystem, examined the main players to determine how telcos can best position themselves, and what they need to do to gain a share of the opportunity.
We focused on five industries poised to see incremental growth with the combination of 5G and edge computing – Industrial manufacturing, Connected healthcare, Intelligent transportation, Environmental monitoring, and Gaming. Analysis estimates the addressable market across the ecosystem for just these five industries to be worth more than US$500B by 2023.
