By far the most mobile phones have SIM-cards. As the name suggests, the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) allows for secure handling of the subscriber’s identity and authentication in mobile networks.
Because of the widespread use of SIM-cards, this market represents the major share of the global Smart Card business. In 2011, SIM-cards accounted for approximately 75% of all Smart Cards produced in the world (source: Eurosmart).
Due to its high volumes, the telecom market is sensitive to costs. On the other hand, the SIM-card has to fulfil its purpose, which is providing a reliable and secure interface between the user and the network.
