更快、更可靠的網絡的發展，特別是5G的廣泛部署，正在加速物聯網的部署。隨著這一發展，許多汽車變得越來越互聯。對於商用車和消費者來說，這種情況預計將持續下去，並且預計將對 eSIM 市場產生直接影響，以保護 IP 地址、隱私、用戶、企業和品牌等敏感信息。
The embedded SIM (eSIM) refers to a SIM capable of hosting multiple connectivity profiles (as defined by GSMA). It supports secure over-the-air remote SIM provisioning, as well as remote updates to the keys and applications. Moreover, eSIMs can be either soldered to a device or removable and sometimes used interchangeably with the term embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC). However, there is a difference as the eUICC is the platform that can run multiple security applications.
Furthermore, worldwide recognition is growing for the unique ability of the eSIM to deliver flexible control and dynamic security over a connected object's lifetime. Moreover, the eSIM shipment volumes showed significant global eSIM growth in 2020, with eSIM shipments collectively reported TCA members increasing 82% year-on-year to reach 308 million units.
The global eSIM market is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2027 from the recorded market size of worth USD XX billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2020-2027).
New digital services continue to facilitate our personal and professional lives. The total established base of Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices globally is expected to amount to 30.8 billion units by 2025, from a sharp jump of 13.7 billion units expected in 2021. For instance, IoT connections are used in various applications, including connected cars, connected industrial equipment and smart home devices. In comparison, non-IoT connections include laptops, smartphones and computers, with connections of these types of devices set to amount to just over 9.5 billion units by 2025, approximately three times less than IoT device connections. As a result, the global eSIM market is expected to grow considerably during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for IoT applications.
Moreover, the development of faster and more reliable networks, especially with the extensive rollout of 5G, accelerates IoT deployment. Due to this development, many vehicles are becoming increasingly connected, which is forecast to continue both in the commercial and consumer-connected car markets that will directly impact the eSIM market for securing crucial information, including IP address, privacy, users, businesses and brands. It is expected that there are over one billion motor vehicles in use globally. In 2019, global sales of connected cars with embedded telematics were estimated to have hit 28.4 million units. The rising number of automobiles on the world streets requires more smart forms of urban transport than the standard ones, and today's smart cities are offering the smart infrastructure needed for the implementation of connected car programs.
Furthermore, the new generation of mobile communications was released in 2019, and as of June 2020, 125 countries globally have begun to invest in the technology. Moreover, 5G networks are the latest 3GPP standard, boasting speeds between 10 and 100 times faster than 4G. 5G is expected to transform mobile communications and enable the digitalization of various aspects of everyday life. Perhaps most significant for future innovation is the ability of 5G technology to transfer vast amounts of data in real-time. In addition, 5G could serve as the basis for a "Fourth Industrial Revolution" and provide the future's smart cities' connectivity. This technology will also bring ease and efficiency to the lives of countless individuals around the world, which is expected to increase the market growth for eSIM globally during the forecast period.
By application, the market is segmented into connected cars, smart homes, smart meters, mobile devices & wearables, laptops, drones and others. By end-user, the market is segmented into electrical & electronics, automotive, energy & utilities, industrial and others.
eSIM implements flexible trusted connectivity to meet multiple logistical needs across different industry verticals. Multiple connectivity profiles, post-issuance personalization and remote management capabilities simplify supply chains and ease deployment challenges. Moreover, eSIM technology also addresses security challenges over a connected object's lifetime. It is based on the widely distributed secure application delivery platform (SIM/USIM/UICC), and its usage is governed by interoperable solutions defined across various organizations such as ETSI, GSMA, GlobalPlatform, ISO and Java Card Forum. In addition, it is standard criteria certified and has advanced cryptographic features and security, including a securely designed central processing unit (CPU) and dedicated secure memory to store operating system programs, certificate data and keys. This guards devices against various hacking scenarios, such as physical attacks on a single device, remote and cloning attacks from the internet to numerous devices. This functionality is complemented by the capability to perform remote upgrades to apps, sensitive data and subscriptions according to GSMA and global platform specifications to quickly respond to emerging attacks and threats once a device is active in the field.
North American region is expected to hold a significant market share due to the first region that supports eSIM and services provided by the major companies in the region. Moreover, North America held a revenue share of over 33.5% in 2019 and is expected to continue dominating during the forecast period due to network providers' presence, rapid technological advancements and the early adoption of advanced IoT & artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. Europe is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2018, the European government implemented an eCall regulation, in which all new passenger cars and EVs will be equipped with eCall technology. This initiative is expected to drive market growth.
APAC is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing adoption of IoT technology, and the rising demand for embedded connectivity in vehicles from the consumers is expected to boost the market growth. Moreover, according to GSMA, in 2018, the number of IoT connections in the region accounted for USD 3.4 billion and is expected to reach USD 10.5 billion by 2025. Moreover, the increasing adoption of consumer electronics solutions such as smartphones, wearables, laptops, among others, is further expected to create growth opportunities during the forecast period.
The eSIM market is fragmented with the presence of regional and global players. The competitive contour lies with the increase in the regional company and growing investment in upstream application. Infineon Technologies AG, NXP Semiconductors N.V., STMicroelectronics, Deutsche Telekom AG, Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security GmbH, Gemalto NV, ARM Holdings, KORE Wireless Group Inc., NTT Docomo Inc., Sierra Wireless are the major player in the sim market. The major players adopt several growth strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and collaborations, contributing to growing the eSIM market globally.
