5G Markets and Energy Efficiency
The 5G marketing machine is shifting into high gear.
Telecom majors all over the world are spending millions to promote their new 5G networks.
And this time, the hype is real.
See, the 5G market is unlike many others that have been hyped in recent years. Markets like cryptocurrency, cannabis, and, more recently, meatless meat have seen incredible growth. And there are still big opportunities to profit from all. But at the end of the day, all of these markets have a limited audience.
5G is the next generation of cellular network technology. The audience is 100% of the population.
Because 5G isn't something you're going to choose. Sooner or later, it's the only thing that's going to be offered.
Fact is, you can't buy a phone using 2G technology exclusively right now. It's not offered.
3G is still around, but it's quickly disappearing. Verizon says it will shut down all of its 3G networks by the end of this year.
It's very likely that 4G networks will still be supported for the next several years. But anyone buying a new cell phone or upgrading their plan is sooner or later going to be on the 5G network.
5G cell phones will be as ubiquitous as broadband internet for your home.
But this industry has needs... trillions of dollars in needs!
Among those needs is more energy.
5G networks are expected to consume as much as three times more energy than their 4G predecessors.
5G promises futuristic connectivity speeds... up to 1,000 times faster than today's networks. But that speed means using more energy.
Methods for reducing energy consumption in 5G networks have become a focus for researchers and developers. There are already hundreds, if not thousands, of published scholarly articles focused on the energy efficiency of 5G networks.
But energy efficiency is more likely a future concern for the industry.
A more immediate concern is real estate.
See, wireless communication providers like Verizon and Sprint don't own many of the cell phone towers they use to provide services; they lease them. In fact, some carriers spend up to 30% of their revenue on leasing cell phone tower space.
The rush to be the first to deploy the best 5G network is driving fresh competition for tower space.
And that puts the real owners of the cell phone towers in the catbird seat.
Chris DeHaemer, investment director of Bull and Bust Report, calls the owners of the cell towers the “landlords of 5G,” and he's positioning his readers now into tower leasing companies.
Chris has boiled it down to three must-own cell tower leasing companies that he says control 80% of the tower leasing market. Chris says if a company wants a 5G network, it will have to go through one of these three companies... or be left behind.

He recently published a report outlining the cell phone tower leasing business's upcoming $12 trillion windfall, which you can download for free here.
Fact is, 5G is more than just faster movie downloads. It's way bigger than that.
5G is expected to propel innovation across multiple fields, from health care to transportation to manufacturing.
Recently, 5G networks allowed a Chinese surgeon to perform the world's first remote brain surgery. Imagine the most skilled doctors in the world being able to heal the most in need anywhere in the world from their home offices.
5G opens the door to driverless cars. The first generation of driverless vehicles will require 5G networks for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.
5G is also a game changer for airline safety. Increased fleet communications and new monitoring systems will translate into better safety and reliability.
It may even lead to completely pilotless flights one day. There are already attempts to commercialize drone taxis.
5G is additionally going to help manufacturers build smart factories that will use tomorrow’s technologies like AI and augmented reality.
The 5G market is the real thing. Believe the hype.
It's reasonable to be skeptical about a market like cryptocurrency. But 5G is the rising sun. It's as close to a guaranteed win as you can get.
That's why guys like Chris DeHaemer have been sounding off on the investment opportunities.
Trillions of dollars are headed toward 5G. This is the investment market you've been waiting for. So I urge you to take a look at these three stocks that Chris says have a stranglehold on the entire 5G market.
