One aspect of the eSignature market that we have not appreciated is that:

In 2015, on-premise digital signatures led the way, accounting for a 60 percent share of market revenue.

Now, cloud-based solutions that enable the remote addition of signatures to documents are increasingly popular and driving the e-signature market forward. These models are expected to dominate the market by 2022.

Docusign's marketshare is higher than we thought since they are only in the cloud and do not participate in on-premise.

However the market is subject to disruption: E-signatures is currently a growth market, but could face challenges in future from biometric authentication methods, such as voice or fingerprint recognition.

Some e-signature companies such as Icon UK already account for this by incorporating biometric information into each written signature, such as rhythm and pressure.

This source believes the market will grow even faster than the prior link at 34.7%, with the cloud growing fastest.

One would think however that Docusign is best positioned to provide the biometric alternatives as it would simply be yet another option to sell into the installed base.
