Embedded SIM Market By Form Factor (Removable and Embedded), By Application (Connected Cars, Laptops, Smartphones & Tablets, Wearables and M2M), By Industry Vertical (Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Oil & Gas, Energy & Utilities, Manufacturing, Retail and Transportation & Logistics) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

"Rapidly Growing Number of Connected Devices Worldwide to Spur the eSIM Market Worldwide"

The eSIM market worldwide is expected to grow with a CAGR of 25.6% during the forecast period. Embedded SIM (eSIM) are the next generation SIM cards, directly embedded in a device such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, wearables and other mobile devices. Unlike conventional SIM cards, eSIM incorporate a reprogrammable chip; this allows the user to switch between networks over-the-air without any need for physically replacing the SIM card. Embedded SIM cards offer numerous benefits over conventional SIM cards including their rugged nature, small size, secure & interoperability, easier handling for mobile network operators (MNOs) and several others. The market growth is highly driven by the rapidly growing number of connected devices worldwide. Ericsson projects over 29 Bn connected devices by 2022, of which over 18 Bn devices will be related to IoT. Of these over 70% of the devices are expected to rely on cellular technology for communication. As a result, eSIM market holds immense potential for growth in the near future.
