After ‘Pokemon Go,’ what’s next for AR games in 5G? 

With companies around the world searching for new business opportunities with the fifth-generation cellular network, augmented reality appears to be a crucial technology in maximizing the effects of 5G, offering new content experiences to consumers, namely in gaming. 

The country’s three major mobile carriers have been scrambling to find AR-based contents that could prove as popular as mega-hit game “Pokemon Go.” But questions linger as to whether the new network service will spark the rise of augmented reality, which has lately been losing steam.

While current 5G-based AR contents are mostly promotions designed to entice more 5G subscribers, the companies are pinning hopes on advanced 5G connectivity eventually churning out more appealing contents than before.  

Mobile carriers have expressed hopes that the heightened expectations of 5G would bring more players into the AR market. According to German market research firm Statista, the value of the AR market is expected to rise from $5.91 billion in 2018 to $198.17 billion in 2025.
