5G smartphone rapidly expand its discourse power in the market in 2020. YTD 5G smartphone shipments were 77.508 million units, represented 44.2% of the total shipment. The total number of new models were 119, accounting for 46.5% of the total new models. Comparatively, total 5G smartphone shipments and new models released in 2019 were 13.769 million and 35. The main reason for the increase of 5G mobile smartphone market penetration is that the major manufacturers turn to compete in the 5G market when they released the new products, which led to consumers’ passively acceptance 5G smartphone. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, 41.6% of the interviewees purchased 5G smartphone because of the normal replacement of the mobile phones. However, 73.3% of non-5G smartphone users think that it is not necessary for the public to buy 5G smartphone at this stage. At present, 5G mobile smartphone do not show obvious advantages over other mainstream smartphones. On the contrary, the high traffic pricing of 5G smartphone and the lack of commercial cities make the replacement of 5G smartphone with low cost performance, and thus hinder its market popularization. In the future, only by standing from the demand side, reflecting the advantages of 5G in communication transmission in smartphones, and developing killer application that can only rely on 5G smartphones, can we accelerate its popularization.
With the continuous popularization of smart phones, the saturation trend of 4G market has emerged. The landing of 5G commercial will drive the development of 5G mobile phones and bring new vitality to the mobile phone industry. IiMedia Research (AI Media Consulting) data show that it is expected that there will be a change of 5G mobile phones in 2020-2023, and the global shipment of 5G smart phones will increase to 401.3 million units in 2023. At present, Huawei, VO, Xiaomi and other Chinese mobile phone brands have all taken part in the 5G market battle. In addition, 5G mobile phones will further drive the development of the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain. The upstream component manufacturers, the middle-stream communication equipment manufacturers and the downstream terminal manufacturers will all benefit. It is estimated that the market size of 5G related products and services will reach 1.15 trillion yuan in 2025. Ai Mei's consulting analysts believe that under the background of favorable policies, economic prosperity, technological development and expanding social demand, the 5G mobile phone industry will accelerate its development. Players with strong technological and economic strength are expected to become track leaders and the head effect of the industry will gradually become prominent.
Major global economies have accelerated the promotion of 5G commercial landing. At present, China's 5G industry has formed four major industrial chains: planning, construction, operation and application. The industry has broad prospects for development. It is estimated that the number of 5G links in China will reach 428 million in 2025, and the direct economic output will reach 3.3 trillion yuan. IiMedia Research (Ai Media Consulting) monitoring found that in 2018, China's 5G industry chain in all aspects of the relevant enterprises revenue exceeded 100 million yuan, the development trend is good. According to the survey, 73.0% of the netizens are optimistic about the future development of 5G technology. Intelligent manufacturing, vehicle network and wireless medical treatment are the hotspots of netizens'attention. The capital market also pays close attention to the 5G industrial ecosphere. With the deepening integration of 5G into many technologies, the innovative application of 5G in traditional industries will become an important economic growth point in the future, and downstream applications such as smart travel and smart medical treatment will be the first investment hotspot.
China's 5G construction is in the leading position in the world. In the distribution of 5G industrial chain, wireless main equipment and transmission equipment occupy most of the value of the industrial chain. However, the threshold of network planning and design is high, and private design institutes need to be upgraded. In terms of wireless main equipment, antennas and PCBs are rising in volume and price, and the demand for small base stations is exploding. At the same time, 5G construction will continue to benefit transmission network equipment.
According to the data of iiMedia Research,73.0%of netizens are optimistic about the future development of 5G technology.Intelligent manufacturing,vehicle network and wireless medical care are hot spots for netizens.As 5G integrates into multiple technologies,the innovative application of 5G in the traditional industry will become an important economic growth point.
Smart scene is a means of real-time perception of the scene where the user is located through technology for a specific scene, and a means of intelligently matching users and scene services. The realization of smart scenarios mainly relies on the development of technology. 5G has currently built 700,000 base stations and the number of terminal connections exceeds 180 million. In 2019, the scale of China's cloud computing market reached 133.4 billion, a growth rate of 38.6%, and the scale of core artificial intelligence industry in 2019 More than 51 billion yuan. As the technology gradually matures, intelligent interconnection of everything based on precise positioning, real-time sensing, data calculation, and personalized services becomes possible. Traditional infrastructure is also gradually transforming to "new infrastructure", and today's business districts, travel, communities, and industrial parks are beginning to move closer to intelligence. The State Council’s Government Work Report in the past three years has repeatedly mentioned the promotion of digital society. According to data from iiMedia Research, in 2019, China's offline retail sales accounted for 75% of the total retail sales of consumer goods. Offline consumption is still the mainstream consumption method of domestic residents, and there is huge room for market growth. The actual user profile of big data is more accurate, and new retail further promotes the integration of online and offline, helping to create smart scenarios.
In 2020, under the influence of Covid-19, offline business of China music industry are affected. But Cloud Live, same screen karaoke, IOT family music and other new formats get development opportunities, and the industry accelerates the integration with the advanced technology. As the data of iiMedia showed, market scale of China digital music industry will exceed 29 billion yuan in 2020 and reach 31.76 billion yuan in 2021. With the maturity of 5G, AI, blockchain and other advanced technologies, their application in the music industry are also accelerating. Online music users are optimistic about such integration, and 68.6% of the interviewed users are optimistic about the application of advanced technologies and music industry.
