Global Remote SIM Provisioning Market: Overview

Subscriber identity module (SIM) provides secure and authenticated access to mobile networks. Remote SIM provisioning is built on existing SIM technology to support emerging technological advancements. Remote SIM provisioning can be updated over-the-air (OTA) and it stores one or more network operator profiles. It enables swapping and switching from one network provider to another without physically changing the SIM.

It allows mobile operators to provide reliable, scalable and secure connectivity. It unites the operator, SIM suppliers with a single specification to avoid fragmented and incompatible technical solutions. It assists selection and download of mobile network operator profile with fast activation of services.

Global remote SIM provisioning technology is a step towards digitization. It allows end users to centrally manage all of their connected devices. Few of these include connected cars, M2M devices and consumer electronics such as, headsets, wearable electronics and tablets.

Global Remote SIM Provisioning Market: Drivers

Mobile connected devices are expected to increase the remote SIM provisioning market as currently mobile network is being used to connect various types of devices/products such as intelligent connectivity of commercial vehicles to access navigation, automated reading of utility meters and home security and assisted living. Need for simplified remote management of relevant subscribers in M2M devices is the need of hour and hence remote Sim provisioning fulfills the gap. The GSMA Embedded SIM Specification provides a standard mechanism for remote SIM management and provisioning of M2M devices connecting over-the-air (OTA) which includes seamless mobile connections for all types of connected machines. It enables switching from one operator subscription to another thereby reducing the possible theft through "SIM card integration" within device.

The flexibility offered by remote SIM provisioning enables M2M device manufacturers to achieve high production volumes efficiently. Initially designed for the automotive sector, the GSMA Embedded SIM Specification has found wide adoption and became the main approach for embedded SIMs in M2M devices.

The drivers for global remote SIM provisioning market are limitation of traditional SIM such as manual SIM card switching for B2B customers, optimize manufacturing process (by giving global product with local provisioning when deployed in the field), profile interoperability and ability to manage M2M devices located remotely.

Global Remote SIM Provisioning Market: Opportunities

The opportunities for global remote SIM provisioning market are emerging technology such as M2M connected devices, consumer electronics sector and IoT (Smart appliances, variety of future data-sensor applications and Wearable gadgets collectively referred as the Internet of Things). Automotive market is expected to contribute to the remote SIM provisioning market growth as integration of SIM management and provisioning with automotive devices is anticipated to have strong demand over the coming years.

Wearable device market currently use connecting technologies (such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC) method however remote SIM provisioning is expected to grow as it would eliminate the need of including SIM housing components and help maximize the space available in the device and thus creating more embedded devices.
