Increase in Adoption of Cloud-based Solutions
Cloud-based deployment of digital signature solutions has gained widespread acceptance across the globe on account of lower implementation costs and easy of availability of cloud storage. As per our analysis, cloud-based deployment segment dominated the global market in terms of revenue, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period.
By component segment, services segment is expected to grow at a considerable growth rate during the forecast period. Digital signature services allow easy, efficient, and secure way to handle the queries related to document signing activities. For instance, eSign is an innovative initiative that authenticates the signer using Adhar Card eKYC services through Application Service Providers (ASPs).
North America and Europe together accounted for about 80.3% of the global digital signature services market in 2015, with the former constituting around 50%. From a growth perspective, Europe and Asia-Pacific are the two potential markets, which are expected to witness significant growth rates during the forecast period.
Among deployment type segments, cloud-based deployment segment dominated the global digital signature market and is anticipated to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to lower costs and easy availability of the cloud storage services and solutions. Cloud computing uses resource sharing methods instead of managing the applications by individual devices or local servers. The cloud allows the function of application software through internet-enabled devices. There are four types of deployment models available in cloud-public, private (internal), hybrid, and community.
Cloud-based deployment type has been gaining momentum in the digital signature industry, and is expected to witness significant increase in its adoption in the near future. The major factors driving the market growth include widespread availability of cloud services (especially SaaS model), low cost of installation, other cost benefits (such as renting cyber space for definite period leading to reduction in the cost of ownership), and availability of various types of models.
In industry verticals segment, BFSI segment is forecasted to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period. North America and Europe jointly accounted for about 70% of the digital signature market in the BFSI industry in 2015, with the former constituting around 37.5%.
Banking transaction have witnessed a paradigm shift from face-to-face to digital platforms such as ATMs, kiosks, tablets, smartphones, and online. This trend has significantly allowed customers to opt for convenient and quick banking channels. However, the associated risks involved due to use of this technology such as identity theft, account hacking, unauthorized money transfer, fraud, fishing, and other cyber-threats have limited the use of this technology. The introduction of digital signature in such transactions significantly minimizes these risks and delivers improved results in terms of speed of transaction, cost reduction, and enhanced customer services.
Among industry verticals, government sector is expected to grow at the second highest CAGR during the forecast period. Local and central governments of countries were earlier inclined towards paper-intensive mode of operation due to specific requirements such as decision traceability, strong audit trails, and control. However, government of various countries are increasingly deploying the digital signature technology to adapt to the reforming digital era and reduce operational expenses.
North America and Europe jointly accounted for about 70.2% of the global digital signature market in the government sector in 2015, with the former constituting around 42.8%.
In geography segment, North America digital signature market was the highest contributor in overall revenue and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the analysis period. This growth is majorly driven by high adoption of digital signature technology and presence of already established infrastructure. BFSI and government jointly accounted for about 41.1% of the North America digital signature market in 2015, with the former constituting around 22.8%. From a growth perspective, BFSI and government are the two potential markets, which are expected to witness significant growth rates during the forecast period.
Further, Asia-Pacific digital signature market is forecasted to grow at the second highest CAGR during the forecast period. The region is expected to exhibit rapid adoption of digital signature technology in the coming years. The Indian Government has taken proactive initiatives for the adoption of digital signatures. For instance, in July, 2006, the Indian Government launched the E-governance program MCA21 to promote the use of digital signature certificate for e-forms with equivalent recognition and validity as that of handwritten signature.
China and rest of Asia-Pacific jointly accounted for about 52.8% share of the Asia-Pacific digital signature market in 2015, with the former constituting around 35.5%. From a growth perspective, Australia and India are the two potential markets, which are expected to witness significant growth rates during the forecast period.
