Global eSIM Market: Overview
With the constant evolution of smart connected devices in every industry vertical, the need for centralized manageable network-connected devices is rising rapidly. For managing devices, the need for remote connectivity is increasing. For sustaining this requirement, the number of manufacturers of smart devices is increasing rapidly. eSIMs are becoming increasingly popular, as they allow users to manage all connected devices, including cars, mobile phones, wearables, medical devices, and others from a remote location. eSIMs are becoming increasing popular among smart device manufacturers, as these SIMs have ‘Machine to Machine’ capabilities and also remote provisioning.
An eSIM is also known as an Embedded SIM or ‘embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card’ (eUICC). eSIMs stand out as a result of evolution; they are smaller in size - 6 mm x 5 mm (length x width). These are an embedded form of SIM cards. The eSIM is soldered onto a motherboard of a device at the time of manufacturing. eSIMs perform the same functionality as the removable SIM cards of present times.
Global eSIM Market: Drivers and Restraints
The fact that an eSIM allows a user to store multiple operator profiles on a device simultaneously and also switch between these profiles remotely is fuelling the demand for the eSIM market. In addition to this, the rapid adoption of IoT across different industry verticals for the manufacturing of smart and connected devices is rising rapidly resulting in the increasing demand for these eSIMs. The increasing popularity and application of machine to machine learning is leading to the rising deployment eSIMs. Also, the global eSIM market is expected to be fuelled by the increasing adoption of these SIMs from leading smartphone manufacturers such as Google and Apple. Smartphone manufacturers are expected to demand eSIMs to enhance their product offerings. On the other hand, consumers can only choose one profile out of all profiles at a time. This is a major drawback of eSIMs, which is restraining the growth of the market. Also, being a latest technological evolution, the compatibility, connectivity, and other issues with the smart devices of different manufacturers is also one of the major challenges for the growth of the eSIM market.
