South East Asia 5G Industry Outlook (2017-2030)

South East Asia is a world leader in developing the latest technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, cloud computing and fintech among others. For example, robotics and advanced manufacturing already have a strong presence in the region with Singapore and Malaysia having established themselves as research and development clusters. Currently, internet service providers and mobile service providers only provide 3G or 4G network in the region, however, the era of 5G could arrive soon. 5G refers to the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications and is the successor to 4G (LTE/WiMax), 3G (UMTS) and 2G (GSM) networks. 5G connectivity is expected to come with much higher bandwidth and reduced latency which could save on energy and reduce overall usage costs.

Countries in South East Asia are planning to develop and deploy their respective 5G networks

Malaysia is reported to have started running its tests for 5G. Cambodia and Thailand have also showed interest in deploying 5G in their countries in 2021. Indonesia has also dabbled with 5G internet. In fact, recently, two mobile network providers there, Telkomsel and XL conducted 5G trials during 2018 Asian Games. Also, in Philippines, work is already being carried out to usher in 5G. Philippine telecommunications firm smart has announced plans to deploy a 5G pilot network in the first half of 2019, while Globe Telecom has informed that a 5G network could be available as early as the second quarter of next year. Singapore’s pilot 5G project is expected to launch by end of this year.

Emergence of new technology

The introduction of 5G in the region could see the emergence of new industries and technologies. For example, Singapore authorities have said that they are planning for drone and autonomous vehicle trials over the 5G pilot network. Essentially, 5G can bring about much greater internet speeds, which could make services more efficient. As apps become ubiquitous and more services are digitalized, 5G could help make such functions smoother. Today, more than half of the region’s population resides in urban areas. By 2030, these urban centres in Southeast Asia are expected to be home to an additional 90 million people compared to today. By then, the internet will be integral to organizing human society. For instance, many cities are already using AI to manage their traffic systems. 5G is essential if ASEAN want to make its ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN) a reality. As of now, 26 pilot cities in the 10-member bloc have been identifies to become part of this network. To realise the initiative, stable and fast internet is critical.

5G and Massive IoT Will Create a Connected World

5G and Massive IoT, the term used to describe the world’s massive number of connected devices and sensors communicating with each other, will be enabled by this future network infrastructure and it is the key driver in creating an interconnected world. These connected things will bring about economic benefits globally with new services, safety and overall efficiency, and they can create approximately USD 2 trillion in economic profits worldwide. IoT services will stretch wide across industries and are continuing to be developed in unique and innovative ways, claiming spots in retail, homes, the public sector, businesses, cities, healthcare, food and beverage, industrial, and manufacturing. Therefore, in the coming years, 5G technology is expected to be scalable and energy efficient and will pioneer a massive IoT world, with a lot of focus will be on extreme simplicity, low-power consumption, and persistent coverage for reaching challenging locations, as well as increased connection density so that networks can handle the massive no. of devices deployed for IoT applications.

Overview of South East Asia 5G Industry

5G network’s complete economic effect will likely be realized across the globe at least by 2030, with supporting a wide range of industries and potentially enabling up to USD 13.3 trillion worth of goods and services and will also contribute around USD 2 trillion dollars in GDP growth by the end of the same period. The 5G value chain, including OEMs, operators, content creators, app developers, and consumers, could alone support up to 22.3 million jobs, or more than one job for every person in Beijing, China. The average consumer is expected to go from being able to consume 2.3 GB of data per month today to close to 11 GB of data per month on their smartphone in 2022, driven by the explosive growth in video traffic as mobile is increasingly becoming the source of media and entertainment, as well as the massive growth in always-connected cloud computing and experiences. Connected cars is projected to become the largest segment of the global 5G Internet of Things (IoT) endpoint market, having a projected 19 million endpoints by 2023. The overall 5G IoT endpoint installed base is forecast to grow from 3.6 million in 2020 to around 50 million in 2023 worldwide. The number of 5G subscriptions in Thailand was forecasted to amount to 450 thousand subscriptions in 2020 and reach 14 million by 2025. Oceania, Eastern and Southeast Asia's mobile 5G subscriptions were also forecasted to account for 2.82% of 5G connections worldwide in 2025.

Challenges for South East Asia 5G Industry Outlook

Proper implementation of 5G in the region is a challenge as deployment cost could be high due to the fact that new infrastructure will need to be built. There are additional concerns that companies could charge higher prices for access to their respective 5G networks. However, just like 3G and 4G, prices will most likely fall, once 5G networks become more readily accessible across the region. The potential of 5G technology is immense, but it will take time, substantial financial outlay and commitment from regional governments before it can be fully be realised.

Future Uses of 5G

  • Smart homes, synced watch and phone devices, and fitness apps, that are fairly common now, will grow with the speed and performance capabilities of 5G.
  • The largescale automation of vehicles, utility services like waste management and energy production through smart grids, and smart environmental monitoring that will help to cut down greenhouse gases and pollution.
  • Smart car parking, with wireless charging and the facility of messaging the car to drive itself from the parking garage to the designated location.
