Europe is the largest region in the global digital signature market. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 37.5% during the forecast period. The global market for digital signature is projected to grow from USD 3.92 billion in 2022 to USD 43.14 billion by 2030.

Digital signatures are used extensively throughout the European Union in the public and private sectors. eIDAS, European Union's new Regulation on Identification and Trust Services, set requirements for secure signatures to help businesses, citizens, and public authorities carry out secure and seamless electronic interactions. It also provides detailed conditions and differentiation related to the types of electronic signatures, simplifying, and ensuring electronic signatures' legal validity.

Additionally, U.K. businesses favor standard electronic signatures for commercial and consumer contracts directed by regulatory framework for electronic transactions. Furthermore, the market solution enables companies to use cloud technology so customers can create these signatures through their smartphones and tablets and improve businesses' digital transformations.

Our report on the Europe digital signature market covers the following countries/regions – the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, Benelux, Nordics, and the Rest of Europe.


Growing Number of Partnerships and Acquisitions across Region Propels Market Growth

The market has witnessed significant growth in recent years. Major key players focus on strategizing their business by partnering and collaborating with small enterprises to establish themselves as competitive advantages. For Instance,

  • In November 2022, eID Easy partnered with Scrive, a Sweden-based electronic identification and signature solutions provider, to deliver electronic ID schemes through Europe. This partnership will enable the users to offer services with a broader range of identity-based signature service market as part of Scrive's offering, which is legally valid and binding in a wider range of countries.


Increased Demand in the E-Commerce Industry Triggered Market Growth

With the rising internet penetration and increasing number of connected devices, the demand for e-commerce increased significantly in Europe, leading to processes with more robust authentication and identity verification checks. Additionally, for businesses moving online, legal binding documents would be essential for governing and accepting this transition. This led to a substantial requirement for solutions that offer security to sensitive documents online.


Lack of Integrated Digital Signature Experience Limit the Market Growth

Despite growing popularity and adoption, authentication issues also arise when companies use e-signature solutions for contracts. An e-signature may be copied easily as a wet-ink signature, which creates a difference in the authenticity of an e-signature. Additionally, cyber-attacks across organizations due to the absence of proper care, altering the document's content, re-create the signature and attaching to the changed document cause damage to a business status, internal controls, and bottom line.

Thus, lack of authentication of signatures by organizations hinders the Europe digital signature market growth.

They are focused on strengthening their product portfolio, active involvement in R&D investments, and distribution network through strategic collaboration and partnerships for the acceleration of product launches, thereby increasing the Europe digital signature market share.
