Moreover, Despite being a technologically advanced country, Germany has been consistently targeted several times by hackers, which led to the exploitation of sensitive data. The increase in the frequency of the number of attacks has driven the rise in the adoption of digital signatures in Germany, thereby driving the digital signature market growth in the country.

Electronic signatures have been legal in China since 2004, with the introduction of the Electronic Signature Law of the People’s Republic of China. Depending on the type of transaction, eSignatures are legally admissible in China. China’s eSignature law states that contracts may be signed electronically, and this agreement is admissible in court. However, one or both parties may need to provide additional documentation to prove the contract was signed electronically. Thus, digital signatures are more widely used in routine business and legal contexts in China. Moreover, many businesses serving users and customers in China do this remotely, which generates the need to adopt digital signatures, contributing to digital signature market growth in China.
