The eSIM market operates in a highly fragmented and competitive marketplace. As leading companies in this market continue to broaden its addressable market, by expanding its current offerings, diversifying its client base, all the prominent players face an increasing level of competition, both from start-ups as well as the leading established companies in the globe. Several companies in the value chain are acquiring other players in the market to maintain their position in the market and provide efficient services to its customers. Major companies of eSIM providers are based in European region. However, the market is penetrating at a high growth rate in the APAC region.

The embedded SIM (eSIM) market is poised to soar over the years. This majorly pertains to the fact that the demand for eSIMs is at a constant rise among the smartphone manufacturers, automobile manufacturers, laptop manufacturers, energy & utility sector players. The uptake of the energy and utility sector is one of the prominent opportunities for the eSIM manufacturers, as energy & utility sector players are increasingly transforming their traditional business to digitalized business. The digitalization of utility and power generation sector is expected to reflect the rise in electricity theft, and eSIMs are capable of transmitting real-time information, thereby reducing the risk of power theft. Attributing to this, the demand for eSIMs is expected to accentuate among the utility and power generation sector, which is ultimately anticipated to drive the embedded SIM (eSIM) market.

The key companies profiled in the eSIM market include Deutsche Telekom AG, Gemalto NV, Giesecke + Devrient Mobile Security GmbH, IDEMIA, Infineon Technologies AG, NXP Semiconductors N.V., Sierra Wireless, STMicroelectronics, Telefónica S.A, and Vodafone PLC. Several other players are also functioning in the market worldwide, contributing significant revenue shares year on year.

Most of the market initiatives were observed in Europe region, which have a high potential of eSIM providers.

Few of the important market initiatives and product developments from the industry are mentioned below:

  • In 2020, Vodafone will soon launch eSIMs into its 2020 device and wearable roadmap. The eSIM (or electronic SIM – a SIM card that's embedded into customer mobile device, instead of being a separate card you swap in and out). The integration of 5G and eSIM will assist deliver smarter machine-to-machine performance, as more sensors will have cellular data, helping to enable greater automation. Smarter sensors also mean more data stored in the cloud.
  • In 2020, Infineon Technologies AG expanded its eSIM portfolio with the OPTIGA Connect eSIM solution for mobile consumer devices. This solution supports all GSMA standards from 3G to 5G and securely authenticates the device to the subscribed carrier network of choice.
  • In 2019, Thales launched Gemalto Instant Connect, a connectivity solution to simplify the connection of eSIM-enabled devices on a mobile network.
