Report Summary:

Global SIM card shipments grew 12% in 2011, and we expect volumes to continue expanding at a healthy rate over the next five years. Growth will be driven by increasing first-time users in emerging markets, new devices in developed regions, and strong demand for multi-SIM usage in prepaid markets. Key stakeholders promoting SIM card innovation include the GSMA, G&D, Gemalto and Apple. This report provides forecasts of worldwide Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card shipments by region, with additional details on form factors such as micro-SIM, protocols such as LTE, and memory capacity by kilobyte, between 2006 and 2016.
