5G is essentially a revolutionary paradigm shift in wireless networking to support the throughput, latency, and scalability requirements of future use cases such as extreme bandwidth augmented reality applications and connectivity management for billions of M2M (Machine to Machine) devices.

Although 5G is yet to be standardized, some of the collectively accepted attributes of the technology include new air interface transmission schemes, new spectrum bands, spectrum aggregation, Massive MIMO, beamforming, D2D (Device to Device) communications and self-backhauling, among others.

Driven by regional, national government, wireless carrier and vendor initiatives, we expect 5G R&D and trial investments will account for nearly $5 Billion by 2020, following a CAGR of nearly 40% over the next 5 years.

The core of the touch screen market is reflected in smartphones and Tablet PCs, both of which will be in trouble in the next three years. The smartphone market has obviously been saturated and slowed down. China exceeds the United States to see the highest smartphone penetration rate. However, the Chinese smartphone market where a person often holds two smartphones is the first one that suffers recession in the world. From January to October of 2014, China's smartphone shipment dropped down 10.4% year on year to 312 million. China's sluggish economy is also a reason for the decline.
