Present in an increasing number of smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches, eSIM has arrived as an opportunity to expand the telephone service and to embark connectivity both on devices that have not supported since then until the offer of more than one line without the need of using physical dual SIM.
One of the clearest and most objective examples in this regard has been the Apple product line which, thanks to eSIM, had the opportunity to offer more benefits to customers, something that could boost the adoption of the new technology by 2025, according to estimates revealed in a study from Juniper Research.
In this study, it is revealed that the expectation is to see an increase in the presence of this technology in the market, increasing from the expected 1.2 billion in 2021 to 3.4 billion in 2025, thus representing a 180% growth in the total number when it comes to availability.
Still according to the research, “the established adoption of eSIM structures from consumer device suppliers, such as Apple and Google, is expected to accelerate the growth of eSIMs in consumer devices ahead of the industrial and public sectors”, with a good part of the growth (94%) of the consumer sector, followed by the industrial and public sectors.
It is worth remembering that an expected consolidation in iPhones will happen when iOS 14.5 is officially made available, thus enabling the dual-band of 5G, allowing the user to use both the physical and the virtual chip to browse the new mobile network.
Over time, it is also expected that we will start to see more adhesion of Android devices with eSIM, something that is already present in a more timid way, including in Motorola Razr, which uses exclusively the virtual version.
