Asia Pacific will become the world's largest 5G region by 2025, led by pioneering 5G markets such as Australia, China, Japan and South Korea, according to a report from the GSMA. Launches of commercial 5G networks in these markets beginning 2019 are expected to see Asia reach 675 million 5G connections by 2025, more than half of the global 5G total expected by that point. According to the report, Asia's mobile industry added USD 1.5 trillion in economic value last year, equivalent to 5.4 percent of regional GDP.
