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

Pakistan is a developing country with a growing population of around 189.87 million ruled by a democratically elected government. Even with the growing appetite of the young population for creative, innovative and high-quality goods and services, Pakistan’s economy has not yet experienced the rapid expansion seen in Asia’s emerging markets.

To revive growth, the government in collaboration with the IMF implemented economic reforms programs in 2013. On 1st January 2014, Pakistan qualified for the Generalized System of Preferences Plus awarded by the EU. The GSP allows developing countries to pay less or no duties on exports to the EU, which contributes to their growth. In 2014, Pakistan and China agreed on the ‘China-Pakistan Economic Corridor’, a USD 46 billion investment program targeted towards the energy and infrastructure projects in Pakistan, which is already home to over 600 foreign companies and is expected to grow in the future.

Decades of internal political disputes and low levels of foreign investment have led to slow growth and underdevelopment in Pakistan. Bureaucracy, terrorism, corruption, weak labor enforcement, and lack of enforced intellectual property rights are constraints for investors. However, Pakistan has the ninth largest English-speaking population in the world and a large educated workforce, which reduces labor and production costs along with the large population, which also serves as a consumer base.
