The digital transition should make it possible to either build new networks based on local frequencies or upgrade current networks to LTE (Long term evolution).

Globally, data-driven analysis aided by technology is driving strategic decisions. Furthermore, the volume of data generated globally is rapidly expanding. According to Seagate Technology plc, the amount of data created globally is predicted to expand from 12 zettabytes in 2015 to 47 zettabytes and 163 zettabytes in 2020 and 2025, respectively.

Furthermore, due to huge cloud deployments across end-user sectors, IT cloud services are growing.  For example, the US market is home to the headquarters of the world’s largest cloud providers, and the country has a significant proportion of cloud storage. The volume of data produced in the country has become a major driver of cloud adoption.

IT services are also gaining in the hybrid IT-managed environment, due to the rise of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) throughout the Industry 4.0 platform. The application of AI technology is expanding throughout the manufacturing and design sectors, boosting market demand during the projection period.
