Industry can hardly wait for 5G
Industry is eagerly looking forward to the new 5G mobile communication technology. According to a study by Capgemini, 79% of German industrial company managers even see it as the key factor in their digital transformation process.22 Jun. 2019 David Schahinian
The consulting firm Capgemini surveyed almost 1,000 industry and telecommunications managers in twelve countries for the “ 5G in Industrial Operations ” study. Approximately two-thirds of the industrial companies surveyed intend to use 5G within the first two years of it becoming available. Companies in Germany are somewhat more hesitant: while only 49% are prepared to jump on the bandwagon in the first two years, 28% nevertheless also plan to apply for their own licenses for the industrial use of 5G.
The digital association Bitkom also recently conducted a representative survey of 505 German industrial companies on the topic of 5G. Both reports indicate that large companies are particularly interested in the technology. While only 49% of industrial companies with over 50 employees reported to Bitkom that the future availability of 5G was important to them, the rate for corporate groups with over 2,000 employees was 66%.
