The global market for Dual SIM Smartphones is projected to exceed 1.5 billion units by 2024, driven by the ubiquitous use of smartphones for performing both personal and professional tasks especially so against the backdrop of expanding mobile workforce and widespread implementation of bring-your-own device (BYOD) programs in modern enterprises. Also growing consumer preference for mixing and matching multiple service providers’ data and voice plans to leverage pricing and cost benefits, is also resulting in the rise of multiple mobile subscriptions per person. Few of the benefits offered by dual SIM smartphones include eliminates the disadvantage of being locked into a single network; separate mobile identities for personal and professional use; expanded network coverage; better ability to mix match service providers tariffs and leverage cost-effective data plans; easy reimbursement of professional voice calls and data usage; added storage and backup benefits on two SIM cards; and eliminates the need for carrying two separate phones. Given the ability of these smartphones to ease BYOD security issues, a growing number of enterprises are encouraging the use of dual SIM phones among employees. Some of the broad market forces influencing growth include growing mobile subscription per capita; launch of newer models of dual SIM smartphones with enhanced speed, multimedia functionality, compelling gaming experience, and integration of innovative features such as fingerprint reader, Eyeprint ID, USB Type-C and OneKey Power Saver etc.; and growing global sales of smartphones especially in untapped emerging markets. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide, supported by QoS issues that drive consumers to juggle multiple service providers to ensure continuous data and network availability; and differing price and quality of data and voice services on prepaid and post-paid service plans that lead subscribers to avail multiple service plans and deals. The Middle East & Africa represents the fastest growing regional market worldwide with a CAGR of 17% over the analysis period.
