The 5G network is an emerging field of the research community. 5G is a multi-disciplinary network that aims to support a wide range of services. 5G network has an objective to support a massive number of connected devices. Game theory has an extensive role in wireless network management. Game theory is an approach to analyzing and modeling the system where multiple actors have a role in decision-making with independent objectives and actions. The game theory is an exciting methodology to control the strategic behavior of players and generate an efficient outcome. Coalition game theory can play a crucial role in ensuring cooperation among a massive number of devices. This article provides insight into the current research trends in 5G using coalition games. The work presented in the survey is divided into three categories, namely resource management, interference management, and miscellaneous. This article also provides the foundation about 5G and coalition games highlight the scope of future research.
