The article introduces Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) and Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC), known as hybrid waveform (NOMAFBMC), as two of the most deserving contenders for fifth-generation (5G) network. High spectrum access and clampdown of spectrum outflow are unique characteristics of hybrid NOMA-FBMC. We compare the spectral efficiency of Orthogonal Frequency DivisionMultiplexing (OFDM), FBMC, NOMA, andNOMA-FBMC. It is seen that the hybrid waveformoutperforms the existing waveforms. Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) is regarded as a significant issue in multicarrier waveforms. The combination of Selective Mapping-Partial Transmit Sequence (SLM-PTS) is an effective way to minimize large peak power inclination. The SLM, PTS, and SLM-PTS procedures are applied to the NOMA-FBMC waveform. This hybrid structure is applied to the existing waveforms. Further, the correlated factors like Bit Error Rate (BER) and Computational Overhead (CO) are studied and computed for these waveforms. The outcome of the work reveals that the NOMA-FBMC waveform coupled with the SLM-PTS algorithm offers superior performance as compared to the prevailing systems.
