Page authority is essentially an estimated score that predicts how well a website will rank. The thought is getting a link from a website with a high page authority (trust) will help improve your rankings. Google looks at high page authority sites and trusts them more than lower PA sites. When one of those sites provides a link to you, they are saying you have valuable content and they trust you. When Google recognizes the link pointing to you page they trust you a little more, hopefully improving your rankings. It's like introducing your friend to another one of your friends. They don't know that second friend, but because they know you, they feel a little more comfortable around them.

Now with that said, page authority is only one component of SEO and I've been able to outrank higher page authority websites with lower page authority websites, so while it's nice to have, it doesn't necessarily impact rankings a lot.

Page Authority is a score (on a 100-point scale) developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engines. It is based off data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank, MozTrust, and dozens of other factors.

You can check your page authority here : https://moz.com/researchtools/ose/

Page authority is an SEO term used to describe the probability that a specific page from your site will be found on a search engine. Page authority is based on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 100 and deals with the relevance of information and links within site pages to one another. Higher page authority means greater chances of your page showing up on search engines, and that your page will be placed closer to the top of the search results. Note that page authority is related to the pages within sites, not the site itself. We score Page Authority on a 100-point, logarithmic scale. Thus, itís easier to grow your score from 20 to 30 than it would be to grow from 70 to 80. Google constantly update the algorithm used to calculate Page Authority, so you may see your score fluctuate from time to time.

The role of page authority in the sense it shows the domain authority of the website means if the website page rank is more than 5 which is rank provided by search engine so those website are high authority sites because by considering the website and it's backlink search engine will provide a page rank for the website from 0 to 10.

The ranking ability of an particular page is generally referred as Page Authority. But I'm not sure that it is the one and only ranking signal for obtaining keyword rankings.

As you can see that Page Authority is still important for the reputation of the site and as one of the ranking metrics to consider your page as a source for the target users.
