Gemalto leads in eSIM provisioning, but other players are exploring options for market disruption

"Operators and vendors should not overlook the opportunity to differentiate and strengthen their positions by providing support for complete eSIMs, connectivity and remote SIM provisioning for vertical markets."

The use of remote SIM provisioning (RSP) platforms is increasing as both operators and device manufacturers start to support embedded SIMs (eSIMs). The eSIM RSP platform market is dominated by a few players, namely Gemalto, Giesecke & Devrient and Idemia. However, new and existing players are acquiring providers of eSIMs and remote provisioning platforms in order to enter and disrupt the IoT connectivity market.
