According to the study, 5G will have a positive impact on the economy and employment by 2030, in the five markets studied:
- The economic activity resulting from 5G will generate a global value creation of €407 billion and the creation of more than one million jobs. The positive impact of 5G will be greatest in France, where the overall value creation related to 5G will reach €190 billion by 2030. The development of 5G will have a net positive impact on employment with more than 420,000 jobs created. The economic impact will far exceed the traditional activity around mobile connectivity.
- New types of services and experiences will be enabled by 5G. Combined with other technologies such as cloud, AI and edge computing, 5G will be an important catalyst in the transition to as-a-service business models and a gas pedal of business performance. The manufacturing industry will account for: 25% of the overall value creation related to 5G across the five countries considered and 21% of the overall value creation related to 5G in France
- On the environment side, the Omdia study shows that 33 Mt of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be avoided in 2030 thanks to the use of 5G in all sectors of activity. This is equivalent to the emissions generated by the population living in Paris and Marseille (or the emissions of a city like Berlin). In France in particular, Omdia estimates that 5G will help avoid 10 Mt of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2030. This is equivalent to the emissions of a city like Marseille
At Orange, we believe that 5G has a key role to play in the development of digital technology. It is important for us to inform economic players, institutions and civil society about the medium-term benefits that can be expected from the deployment of this technology. This is why we have commissioned this study from Omdia.
