Can somebody explain to me why tanks should deal damage?

So I was playing Jayce against a Sion with electrocute and ignite and he always won the trade early, mid and late game, it never mattered so I have been asking myself why does a tank out damage me at every single stage of the game by a marginal amount why does he have this much damage to begin with? I really want to understand the thought process of this decision.
