Health Insurance Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

The global health insurance market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Health insurance protects an insured individual against financial losses arising due to a medical emergency. It covers medical treatment expenditures, such as ambulance charges, doctor consultation fees, and hospitalization, medicines and daycare procedures costs. The payout is generally either made on actual expenses incurred in the hospital using original medical bills or diagnosis of diseases without submitting bills. Health insurance also provides easy access to medical treatment with a cashless facility at network hospitals of the insurer. Apart from this, health insurance also provided tax benefits for a vast array of medical conditions. Nowadays, various health insurance companies are offering coverage for domiciliary treatment, wherein medical supervision is provided at home for specific diseases.

The increasing costs of healthcare services, in confluence with the growing prevalence of diabetes, cancer, stroke and kidney failure, represent one of the key factors escalating the demand for health insurance worldwide. Moreover, governing agencies of several countries are making it necessary for employers to provide health insurance to their employees. These agencies are also enforcing laws that mandate international health insurance for tourists. Apart from this, the rising geriatric population is promoting the adoption of government health insurance programs or schemes offered at low premium rates. Furthermore, growing health awareness and improving healthcare infrastructure are other factors bolstering the market growth. Besides this, various companies are providing cover for medical expenses incurred during the treatment of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). They are also focusing on digitizing claim processing and policy management, which is anticipated to influence the market positively in the coming years.

The market is further driven by the widespread adoption of social media for the promotion of health insurance products by various players. Social media platforms provide them with a diverse customer reach, which is anticipated to provide numerous growth opportunities for the players. Additionally, digitizing various processes in the health insurance market also aids customers in comparing multiple plans offered by numerous vendors. This enables transparent communication between the insurers and companies and provides effective disclosure of pertinent information to ultimately help the individuals make an informed decision, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market.

The rising integration of health insurance with Big Data analytics aids insurance companies in diversifying their models and strategies in an attempt to recognize the ever-evolving consumer demand. The escalating deployment of predictive analysis and scenario-based modeling in the market also enables the companies to devise customized solutions for their clientele at varied pricing options. Also, the rising adoption of cloud-based services and the increasing penetration of high-speed internet connection across the globe has facilitated real-time consultations with experienced industry experts who can help provide insightful recommendations to the customers. This rapid outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent mandatory lockdowns imposed by the governments of numerous countries have provided an impetus to the demand for online insurance consultations across the globe. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the widespread preference for family floater health insurance among the masses, increasing penetration of healthcare services and health insurance in the rural sections of the developing economies, and the introduction of policies that offer the benefit of free annual/bi-annual check-ups with additional customization at low premium rates. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during 2021-2026.
