The 5G market in aviation is estimated to grow at a CAGR 51.87% rate during the forecast period. The reasons behind increase are demand for better flight experience and the need for fast internet connectivity at airports.

Small cell segment is projected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. Small cell is more environmentally friendly, and it is anticipated to provide a clearer 5G signal with less power. Thus, airlines are expected to focus on the deployment of small cells in their aircraft fleet owing to the better coverage and quality of 5G network provided by them on an aircraft which in turn growth of small cell will be highest.

5G infrastructure for the airport segment projected to lead 5G market during the forecast period. According to end-use, 5G infrastructure for the airport is estimated to account for a larger share of the overall market in 2021. 5G infrastructure for aircraft is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the rise in the development of smart connected aircraft across the globe. 5G infrastructure and services would be used in various flight operations as well as drone operations, such as real-time data acquisition & monitoring and in-flight entertainment

North America expected to lead 5G market from 2021 to 2026. The growth in North America is due to high demand for air travel, and better flight experience. The rise in passenger traffic in this region is leading to an increase in the demand for good internet connectivity in airports as well as aircraft. In addition, the expansion of connected aircraft and smart airports in this region is boosting the growth.

Key players in the North American region are Cisco Systems (US), Panasonic Avionics Corporation (US), Gogo LLC (US), Global Eagle Entertainment (US), ONEWEB (US), Smartsky Networks (US), Inseego Corp (US) and Intelsat (US). Ericsson (Sweden), Nokia (Finland), Aeromobile Communications (UK) are the key market players in Europe who have robust product offerings. Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (China), is the key market player in the Asia Pacific region.
