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 

Israel is a small country located in the Middle East bordered by Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. Israel has a liberal investment system and most activities are open to both private nationals and foreign investors. It has many tech start-ups, funded by America, a strong R7D sector, and a highly skilled multi-lingual workforce.

The government encourages entrepreneurship and the country is the second largest regarding the availability of venture capital. The recent revision of Encouragement of Capital Investments Law now includes financial incentives for foreign investments. Israel is bordered by countries with on-going wars and terrorist activities, which act as a major impediment for foreign investors. It also has high corporate taxes and cost of manpower.

Israel invests almost 5% of its GDP in R&D and has many highly qualified engineers with access to funds. For these reasons, Israel is a good country to invest in if a company wants to set up an R&D wing, branch office, or LLC.
