MAC address is unique per NIC and it is provided by the manufacturer following the IEEE rule at the time of manufacturing.

So theoretically each MAC address will be unique.

But with software software we can change the MAC address.

Note: if a host has two NIC, then it will have two different MAC address, one per each NIC.
