DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “The Global Market for 6G Communications Devices and Materials 2024-2044” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Global Market for 6G Communications Devices and Materials 2024-2044 provides a comprehensive analysis of 6G wireless communication technologies and markets.

The 6G market is poised for massive growth over the next decade, driven by the need for ultra-fast and high-capacity wireless connectivity. 6G networks are expected to succeed the current 5G technology by 2030, bringing theoretical peak speeds of 1 Tbps compared to 20 Gbps for 5G.

Since the deployment of 1G networks in the 1980s, each generation of wireless communication has brought massive leaps in speed, latency and connectivity. 6G is anticipated to continue this progression with peak data rates up to 1 Terabit per second (1 Tbps), sub 1-millisecond latency and the ability to simultaneously connect over 100 billion devices.

Key drivers for 6G include connecting the Internet of Everything, enabling high-fidelity immersive extended reality, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication for autonomous driving, and extremely dense wireless connectivity for smart cities.

The report analyzes 6G’s transformative impact across telecom, automotive, manufacturing, healthcare and other sectors. In-depth technology assessment covers 6G spectrum, network architectures, hardware, materials like graphene and reconfigurable intelligent surfaces, security, artificial intelligence and other innovations. 38 company profiles analyze the 6G development, partnerships and IP landscape.

Compared to 5G, 6G aims to provide:

  • 10 to 50 times higher data rates
  • 10 to 100 times more connected devices
  • 99.999% reliability
  • 100% coverage everywhere
