About the Market

The health insurance industry is one of the cardinal components of the global economy by virtue of the amount of revenue it generates, the extent of the global investment, and most prominently the indispensable socio-economic role it plays in securing personal and business risk in the event of unforeseen problems. The key issues in the insurance industry include rising competition, generally soft pricing conditions and tight profit margins. Moreover, the economic turbulence in 2008 has affected employer and corporate health insurance business in the developed countries to some extent, due to cost cutting and lay-off of employees and slowdown of new recruitments. However, at individual levels, the market has not shown any significant slowdown. The health insurance market in developed nations is consolidated by few major players who cover more than 80% of private and public (medicare and medicaid) managed insurance. The cardinal challenges for new capital entrants in the health insurance market include immense competition and rising customer expectations. Success here would be enhanced by expanding digital capabilities, making insurance products easier to understand, compare and purchase. The health insurance market especially in the EU5 countries (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) is quite stable owing to a significant contribution from the government. The growth perspective for private players is limited due to universal health coverage plans in these countries. Furthermore, in developing regions the health insurance market for private players continue to challenge as economic recovery throughout the region is overshadowed by low business investment rates and slower industry growth. In some developing nations, the growth prospects remain high due to increasing GDP, rise in disposable income, and growing trend toward health security. Furthermore, the growth of the middle class and high net worth population in these regions presents an immense opportunity for international players to exploit the emerging market. Major players in the market include United Health Group Inc., Allianz SE, AIA Insurance Group, Express Scripts Holding Company, Zurich Insurance Group Ltd., AXA, Aviva Plc, Aetna Inc., International Medical Group, Apollo Munich Health Insurance and Cigna Corporation.

About the Geography

China, a USD 10 trillion economy with a strong communist government at its helm, is reshaping the global economy, like never before.  China is the world’s second largest market and is continually growing to become an attractive destination for foreign investment.

Since the late 1970s, China has moved from being a closed economy to a more market-oriented one. In the past 30 years, the Chinese government has at times opened the door wide for foreign companies while keeping it firmly closed in sectors where the government seeks to develop domestic firms into international giants. The government of China discourages investments, which intend to profit from speculation like currency and real estate. The government has also indicated that it plans to restrict foreign investment in resource intensive and highly polluting industries. Policy changes to RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (RQFII) were introduced in March 2013, which have loosened market entry requirements for registered financial institutions.

Large parts of the economy are still closed to foreign firms and there is a strong competition from state-owned industries in the remaining sectors. The country is also well-known for its tangled bureaucratic web, which along with the complex business structure and language barrier, can make doing business in China a bit tough. However, with 1.3 billion internal consumers and a rapidly growing market, China offers an endless array of opportunities for firms from across the globe.
