A subscriber identity module or subscriber identification module (SIM), widely known as a SIM card, is an integrated circuit that is intended to securely store the international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) number and its related key, which are used to identify and authenticate subscribers on mobile telephony devices (such as mobile phones and computers). It is also possible to store contact information on many SIM cards. SIM cards are always used on GSM phones; for CDMA phones, they are only needed for newer LTE-capable handsets. SIM cards can also be used in satellite phones, smart watches, computers, or cameras.
The increase in the development of triple SIM FF as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The triple SIM provides a solution for handling different SIM sizes and easing SIM management as it is innovated to combined all FFs in one single card with precise cuts. Additionally, it has also been noted that these triple SIMs can withstand temperature ranging from -40°C to +85°C.
The increased growth in soft SIM market is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the SIM card market in the coming years. A soft SIM is a built-in feature that can replace the traditional SIM cards and allow the users to connect to their network of their choice by selecting and entering the details in the software. For instance, iPad tablet and Samsung Gear S2 introduced soft SIM functionality, and this trend is likely to continue in the upcoming next-generation versions of the smartphones in the future.
