Marseille, France (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Smart Insights has just expanded its offer with the addition of Smart Insights Market Trends, a quarterly publication that puts into perspective the major trends in the secure transactions industry.
The first issue of Smart Insights Market Trends has just been distributed to Smart Insights subscribers. This first issue focuses on eUICC (Embedded Universal Circuit Card), also called embedded SIM, a major change in the SIM market, as it may affect the delicate balance of power between mobile network operators, handset vendors and consumers. Smart Insights Market Trends includes interviews with thought leaders in our industry, and economic environment at large; in this first issue, readers enjoy interviews with experts from GSMA, Giesecke & Devrient, Evolving Systems and Watchdata.
Each issue of Smart Insights Market Trends will address a key topic of the secure transactions industry. Olivier Trébucq, who was formerly Associate Editor of Smart Cards Trends, brings his contribution and expert skills to Smart Insights Market Trends. Smart Insights Market Trends delivery is combined with Smart Insights Weekly to bring readers a more complete understanding of our Secure Transactions industry.
Smart Insights recently published its latest Smart Insights Report, titled “eUICC, a disruption in the SIM market”, which includes a series of adoption scenarios for eUICC, depending on which entity in the ecosystem is the most active in supporting the new technology. According to these scenarios, the adoption of eUICC as a replacement for the detachable SIM will not have a significant impact on the SIM market over the forecast period (2013 – 2018). The report provides forecasts on eUICC shipments and adjusted removable SIM card shipments in volume. Even with the fastest adoption scenario, adjusted removable SIM card shipments will continue to grow at a CAGR of 6% to 12%.
