GROWTH DRIVERS

  • RISING ACTIVE MOBILE BROADBAND SUBSCRIPTIONS, IN NUMBERS, PER 100 INHABITANTS

5g e-sim market

The 5G e-sim market can benefit from the increase in active broadband subscriptions, as more speed and bandwidth are required by various devices and applications. For example, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the metaverse can perform better with 5G e-sim technology. Also, e-sim technology can enable users to switch, download, and delete different operator profiles without a physical SIM. This can make the user experience and convenience of using multiple devices and networks better.

For instance, the International Telecommunication Union states in its report named “Facts and Figures 2022”, the number of subscriptions per 100 habitants’ for active mobile broadband for the year 2020 was 78, 2021 was 82, and 2022 was 87. This reflects the continually increasing use of broadband. This suggests that more individuals are utilizing mobile devices with high-speed internet access, which might be encouraging for the 5G E-Sim industry as it suggests rising demand for 5G products and services.
