Published on Sep 20, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Microinsurance Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global microinsurance market reached a value of US$ 78.4 Billion in 2021. Microinsurance refers to a division of microfinance that offers insurance to the under-served or low-income section of the society. It involves the requirement of low premiums that are provided through the four basic models of insurance available in the market, namely full-service, community-based or mutual, partner-agent and provider-driven models. These plans are generally tailored according to the requirements of the consumers. Microinsurance products are commonly delivered to the target users via various intermediaries and institutional channels, including healthcare providers, licensed insurers, microfinance institutions, community-based organizations and non-governmental organizations.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Microinsurance Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the rapid expansion of the insurance sector. As a major indispensable component of the industry, microinsurance is gaining widespread prominence on the global level. This can be accredited to its cost-efficient insurance schemes and the transparent dynamics between the service provider and the insurer. Moreover, numerous organizations are now deploying virtual networks and multichannel interaction platforms in an attempt to provide incentives as well as build a value chain in the microinsurance business. This is creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the continual developments in regulatory policies across the globe. For instance, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has permitted effective distribution of all microinsurance products via point-of-sales (PoS) in an effort to improve the penetration of microinsurance across India, thereby providing an impetus to the market growth. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the introduction of consumer-friendly insurance models in the market and the growing digitization across the insurance sector. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 111.84 Billion by 2027.
