eSIM: The True Impact on the Removable SIM Cards Market


ABI Research recently released its latest forecast data set related to the Embedded Subscriber Identification Module (eSIM) market. Proactive eSIM market tracking is key to understanding the likely market outcomes and potential impacts, given that the eSIM form factor is one that is transformative in nature.

As a subsequent effect, the eSIM will undoubtedly impact the entire SIM value chain in some way, shape, or form, influencing business models, sales channels, and processes across leading smart cards (including Gemalto, IDEMIA, G+D, and VALID), secure integrated circuit (including STMicroelectronics, NXP, and Infineon), Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) (including Deutsche Telekom, Verizon, AT&T, Reliance Jio, Vodafone, and Orange), and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) vendor landscapes. This executive foresight summarizes the main report findings as they relate to the size of the eSIM handset market today and the likely outcomes and potential impacts (if at all) on the traditional removeable SIM cards market.
