Telecommunication packaging is more than a shipping container for your SIM card. Telecommunication technology has become indispensable with our communication. Without phone signal and wireless internet connection; phones, laptops, computers, data and the various applications on our phone that we use for connecting to each other would not work. The world as we know it wouldn’t be possible.
To say that telecommunications are necessary is the understatement of the century; literally. In just a decade communication has changed, grown and altered beyond recognition – and we’re certain that in the next ten years we’ll see huge changes as the sector continues to evolve.
So, with changing communication channels there are also changes that are necessary in packaging to keep up with the needs of consumers.
The value of telecommunication services worldwide is €1,131 billion – and the value is growing. Global telecommunications spending reached $1,553 billion in 2020. The market revenue as shares in North America of telecommunication services is 54.2%.

The number of mobile connections worldwide is 7.66 billion.
