This IDC Market Perspective evaluates the impact of eSIM development on the business–to-consumer (B2C) and B2B markets.
"IDC believes that in the long term, both remote provisioning and eSIM technologies are likely to be adopted in all device segments, " said Dušanka Radoničić, senior research analyst, IDC EMEA Mobility. "We expect traditional SIMs and eSIMs to overlap before the transition from one to the other is completed. eSIMs will lead to significant increases in the number of connected devices, enabling full digitalization of market."
