5G is expected to revamp the equipment manufacturing segment in India

5G is expected to revamp the equipment manufacturing segment in India

Amidst the current pandemic situation, there is one clear winner that is technology. Businesses, schools, households, healthcare, and governments are all clearly reliant on technology because it is helping the world function during the lockdown. The surge in the use of technology has fueled the need for a 5G network. The rise in data traffic, increased machine to machine connection, rising adoption of the internet, partnership for 5G monetization are continually advocating, driving the demand for 5G. India has sufficient resources and technical expertise to overthrow Chinese companies by disrupting global supplies. A loss for Chinese manufacturer Huawei could be a potential gain for others in this segment like Nokia and Ericsson networks.

For India to ramp up manufacturing, the existing manufacturing facilities must be upgraded. But one of the challenges here is, most of the manufacturers are near bankruptcy. Recently few schemes were announced by the PM, and investments worth Rupees 50,000 crore are expected in the electronics sector. Access to the European and US market is expected to open soon as the world is now leaning towards geopolitical considerations. The newly proposed band seems too costly for the existing operators. To overcome this challenge, operators want to use WiFi airwaves and existing airwaves to transmit signals.
