Global Digital Signature Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rapid Globalization and Flourishing Cross-Border Trade

Rapid globalization and flourishing cross-border trade are among the crucial factors propelling the growth of the digital signature market. As more and more multinational corporations are emerging worldwide, the need for strong authentication tools is emerging for remote contracts and speeding up the entire process. For this purpose, a digital signature is proving to be very efficient since it boosts the entire process by authenticating ownership in real-time as well as meets the regulations laid by authorities such as eIDAS.

Rising Adoption of Cloud Infrastructure

The adoption of cloud infrastructure in the working environment is emerging with significant growth opportunities for the global digital signature market. The use of cloud computing gained significant traction post the COVID-19 pandemic as it allows remote working along with collaborative work environments and information sharing. Therefore, the use of digital signatures is being suggested to protect the sensitive documents that are sent on a network from unauthorized access since digital signatures authenticate the source of the message by establishing ownership of the message.

Restraints

Lack Of Stringent Data Protection and Cybersecurity Laws

The lack of stringent data protection laws especially in emerging economies and underdeveloped countries may act as the biggest restraining factor for the growth of the global digital signature market. Without these laws, digital signatures can be misused to sign a record without the knowledge of the owner if the private key is not secured properly. The increasing rate of cybersecurity attacks worldwide is also emerging as a major concern, which may hinder the market growth in the forecast period and may act as a huge restraining factor for the global digital signature market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Digital Signature Market

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak negatively impacted the growth of various industries by halting their business operations. The restrictions on mobility and imposition of social distancing norms amid the COVID-19 pandemic significantly boosted the adoption of digital signatures as it ensured contactless transactions and ensured authenticity. As a result, the digital signature gained significant traction during the pandemic, especially among small and medium-sized businesses. Furthermore, growing cloud deployment also supported the growth of the digital signature market.

Global Digital Signature Market - By Component
