Gina Luk, Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics, added that “By 2030, 5G IoT connections will be dominated by Industrial and Automotive applications, with 28% and 21% 5G IoT connections respectively. Healthcare and Security applications will be the next largest market in 2030, accounting for a combined 20% of 5G IoT connections. The low latency benefits of 5G will allow IoT use cases where near-instantaneous communications are required, such as platooning of trucks in transportation, autonomous driving, low latency in manufacturing and areas like remote surgery in healthcare, where a surgeon could be conducting a surgery via robotics and virtual/augmented reality, even though not located in the operating theatre with the patient.”
