Looking to buy the report?

A traditionally profitable business segment, insurance is necessary to bring stability to firms (property and casualty, D&O, others) and individuals (life insurance, health insurance, others). However, declining bottom lines across the industry imply that a change is in order. What is causing this change?

(i) Technological Disruptions: Data and analytics form the core of the insurance market. However, the forces of innovation and disruption are looking to outperform traditional insurance stakeholders, by closely evaluating the insurance value chain to leverage the customers’ preference for better services, at lower costs.

(ii) Changing Risk Dynamics: Third-party liability claims, fires, automobile accidents and workplace mishaps - all core sources of premiums - are declining year-on-year. This implies that the insurance industry’s premiums are experiencing a downward trend. However, with change, also comes opportunity; rapidly emerging sectors include cyber risk in mature markets, and a slew of non-automotive insurances at nascent stages in emerging economies. Across typical sub-verticals, it is time to integrate overdue, relevant changes to typical products facing lower demand, so as to leverage behavioral changes rather than lose share in these markets. The advent of IoT is also disrupting physical asset management processes, which are connected deeply with non-life insurance sectors.

(iii) Accessing Capital: In the world of capital, cyclical upheavals and downturns are routine. Traditional financial market return rates being low, (re)insurance market appears to attract higher capital , despite the downswing in the global economy

(iv) Geographical Aspects: Mature markets accounted for about 83% of all premiums, as of 2015, while accounting for close to 44% of the global growth in premiums; the rest is accounted for by emerging economies.
