Based on chipset type, the ASIC segment accounted for nearly half of the total share of the European 5G infrastructure market in 2018, and will maintain its highest position by 2026. This is due to its high efficiency in providing for a single application. However, the FPGA segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 100.4% from 2019 to 2026, owing to availability of extensive solutions regarding FPGA devices, configurable, ready-to-use IP cores, and advanced software for markets and applications.
Based on region, Germany accounted for the major market share, contributing for nearly one-fourth of the total share of the Europe 5G infrastructure market in 2018, and will maintain its dominant position during the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of German telecom giant Deutsche Telekom that won 5G spectrum block auction.
