This is very speculative question and cannot be answered. You need to do your own research based on your needs, requirements and budget to select ESB products available in the market. Whether OSB is better than Tibco ActiveMatrix Service Bus unless you define some parameters on which you want to measure the brightness of their future.

There is no one product that will fill the place for Capital Markets domain. It cannot be the deciding criteria to select a product.

It's all depend upon your requirements , Personally i think Oracle Service Bus is a good solution for integration but it's quite expensive in terms of license.

The ESB is in hot demand now a days. Over the years the enterprises have been doing their projects and have legacy and tightly coupled products.
The challenge is to have a middle ware to reduce dependency between the providers and consumers. This should be achieved without the calling components know about the servicing components.
The ESB should be able to handle this like a black box.

The best ESB in the market would be
1) Apache ServiceMix
2) JBoss Fuse or FuseSource
3) IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker
4) Mule ESB from MuleSoft
5) TIBCO Business Works.
6) Volante Designer/Simulator.
7) Oracle Service Bus

There are so many players in the market. The mostly used ESB is Apache ServiceMix, JBoss Fuse and Mule ESB which are Open Source technologies which are very good. Best among Open source would be Apache Service Mix and JBoss Fuse which are based on JBI and NMR specifications. Both these ESB's are built over OSGI initiative and support JBI and NMR specifications which is the future on how the ESB's should be designed.

Websphere Integration Bus , TIBCO Business Works and Oracle Service Bus are costly products which comes up with the support and is relied upon by major Banks and Financial institution all over the world.
Of these the major player in the market is IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker.All these projects helps you to create BPEL flows and integrate with inputs and output systems like File, FTP ,Http , webservice components etc

Volante Designer tool could be used as a true ESB which combines the capability of creating BPEL flows () and integration with the input and output systems which is one of the very good ESB's.
Mule ESB is currently been used for quite time in US now and was a buzz in the beginning.

According to my experience, major players in demand would be as follows:
1) Apache ServiceMix
2) JBoss Fuse or FuseSource
3) IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker

OK, so far so good. Your statements make good sense and pretty much align with SOA vision.

Here is where you get off track a bit. There is no such product called "IBM Websphere Integration Bus". There is IBM Integration Bus and there is WebSphere Message Broker but not " IBM Websphere Integration Bus" And if you are listing these in terms of market share, your numerical list is way off. By far, installed base of IBM's product is the leader in terms of number of licenses sold, number of ESBs installed, in-memory data grids, and number of connections made. [Gartner 2012]

Again, your facts are off-base and you are unaware of the name of the leading product. ESBs have NOTHING TO DO WITH BPEL. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Process_Execution_Language ESBs provide three main values to an organization and ESB transactions may be driven by BPEL products, but ESBs are not BPEL aware. "Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), short for Web Services Business Process Execution Language (WS-BPEL) is an OASIS[1] standard executable language for specifying actions within business processes with web services. Processes in BPEL export and import information by using web service interfaces exclusively." You say OSGi is the future of how ESBs should be designed, if this is so, why is OSGi support not part of the ESB of the leading product (although it is part of the underlying messaging transport)? http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmqv7/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.mq.csqzaw.doc%2Fjm35080_.htm

I'm not sure about your experience because you do not provide details about where you have implemented Enterprise Service Bus patterns, but your confusion over BPEL and OSGi as being part of Enterprise Service Bus patterns seems to call into question this facet. Can you elaborate more on what you have done, especially how you have implemented BPEL constructs with an ESB ?

Tibco has not been actively developed in the last few years, the latest release in 2012. It's biggest drawback is the fact that the toolkit (Integrated Development Environment - IDE) is not based on Eclipse. What this means is, if you base your livelihood on Tibco, you are fully dependent on that SOLE SOURCE for all enhancements. If that is true, think about how decisions are made whether or not to add a product feature : the powers that be in Tibco will determine if I spend X amount of Euros on Feature Y, can I charge Tibco customer base X + 30 percent additional license fee. If the answer is no, you will likely not see that new feature, since Tibco will not produce some additional feature that it cannot pay for with for-profit motive.

Alternately, if you choose an ESB which has Eclipse as it's development tool, then you can get alot of drop-in free enhancements from the Eclipse community. Check this review of Tibco's Designer.
