An embedded SIM or eSIM is a hardware chip that is permanently embedded in a device. It’s a small chip that activates a mobile plan, verifies user identity, stores data, and allows multiple operators to share the same device. It’s widely used in smartphones, tablets, laptop computers, connected cars, and machine-to-machine (M2M), operations. eSIM offers many advantages. It can support multiple mobile carriers, reduce the space required, and is easier to activate.

The rapid adoption of IoT-connected devices in consumer electronics as well as M2M applications is driving the market growth. The number of eSIM profiles downloaded to consumer devices is on the rise. The rise in eSIM-connected devices is driving the eSIM market.

According to, “The eSIM Market is projected to reach a valuation of USD 18.93 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 10%, from USD 7.3 Billion in 2022.”
