eSIMs: India & China to Represent 25% of Smartphones...

Smartphones currently represent the main use case for eSIM connectivity; at least, within the category of consumer devices.
The above infographic illustrates how, combined, India and China will host 25% of the smartphones leveraging eSIM connectivity in 2027, followed by the US (10%), Brazil (4%), and Pakistan (3%). However, our latest research notes that regional regulations currently prevent the sales of eSIM-enabled smartphones within China. If this growth is to be achieved, industry bodies must work closely with China to develop specifications that allow eSIM support whilst addressing requirements for device monitoring and tracking.
