Driving Factors

With the advent of eSIM in the automotive sector, trucks and vehicles now have a great deal of choice when it comes to cellular connectivity while also being able to access new features and capabilities. It is anticipated that all automobiles will be cellular-enabled within the next several years, improving the driving experience thanks to cutting-edge linked services. Through the implementation of the GSMA Embedded SIM specification to improve vehicle connectivity, the automotive industry recently made a significant advancement in enabling the next generation of connected cars. As a result, security for various connected services is supposed to be improved. The eSIM-enabled systems provide remote SIM profile provisioning in addition to automatic interoperability across different SIM operators and connecting platforms. The running chain of these systems now includes several network service providers, making it more difficult to manage the security of these systems. The eSIM collects and stores Mobile Network Operators' (MNOs') credentials in the device's built-in software, leaving them open to security lapses. Additionally, the use of eSIM across a variety of physical platforms and MNOs exposes it to a number of risks related to virtual environments. As a result, if security is compromised, the operational flexibility offered by eSIM may be rendered useless, preventing market expansion.


Restraining Factors

The eSIM industry is constrained by a lack of technical know-how. The majority of company processes employ ESIM. This sim can be used by anyone with technical knowledge. Additionally, eSIM is a technology that is utilised in laptops, M2M, and linked autos. It is primarily utilised in the technology and customer service industries. To use the market, more technical knowledge is required. Market inefficiency may result from poor management of the market. All of these market limitations have the potential to slow the industry's rate of expansion. Fewer people are needed in many organisations to run this technology. With the market's projected revenue growth rates, these constraints may be very severe.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the Connectivity segment is dominating the market over the forecast period.

On the basis of solution, the global eSIM market is segmented into Hardware, Connectivity Services. Among these, the connectivity segment is dominating the market over the forecast period. The increased use of eSIM for M2M connections, which is anticipated to generate revenue for network operators through subscription services, may be the cause of this rapid rise. Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) offer connectivity services for securely managing end-user cellular subscriptions from a distance. The GSMA Embedded SIM Specification, which will boost vehicle connectivity and pave the way for a new generation of connected vehicles, has just received support from the automotive industry. It is anticipated that it would enhance security for a number of connection services, enabling the market to expand.


  • In 2021, the M2M segment holds the highest market share over the forecast period.

Based on application, the global eSIM market is segmented into Consumer Electronics, M2M. Among these, the M2M segment holds the highest market share over the forecast period.
