Global e-signature market is expected to grow at a robust rate of around 26% during the forecast period. The global e-signature market is driven by the widespread adoption of e-signatures by various end user industries including BFSI, legal, government, retail, among others. Additionally, the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 disease has shut down worldwide operations of enterprises and public-private sectors. The world is working remotely under restrictions and digital & teleworking recommendations. This has increased the use of digital signatures for completing necessary tasks and operations along with that digital signatures help in proving the identify of people and institutions thereby propelling the market growth through 2025. Furthermore, increasing expenditure by government & enterprises on electronic documents coupled with new product launches by the major vendors operating in the market is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth over the next few years. However, lack of awareness and adoption especially in the emerging world can restrict the market growth during the forecast period. Besides, variation in digital signature rules & regulations across regions can hamper the market growth.

The global e-signature market is segmented based on component, deployment mode, type, use-case, application, company and region. Based on deployment mode, the market can be bifurcated into on-premise and cloud. The cloud segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period on account of the benefits associated with cloud such as affordability, scalability, flexibility, 24/7 availability, large storage space, auto-update feature, among others. Based on type, the market can be categorized into signature pad at POS, public key infrastructure, voice signature, clickwrap, username & pin and others. The public key infrastructure segment is expected to dominate the market since it offers the signer document authentication and enhanced security at reduced costs. Based on application, the market can be fragmented into HR, legal, real estate, BFSI, healthcare, government & defense, manufacturing & engineering and others. The BFSI segment is expected to dominate the market since e-signatures help the accountants and tax specialists to get necessary signature faster with legal requirements.

Regionally, the e-signature market has been segmented into various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate the overall e-signature market owing to the early adoption and widespread use of technology in the region. Europe is expected to register the highest growth in the market owing to the increasing investment by the government and major private & public sectors on account of the growing cyber security concerns.
