Saudi Arabia Health Insurance Market to Reach US$ 12.1 Billion by 2032, Bolstered by Various Favorable Government Initiatives

February 24, 2020 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Saudi Arabia Health Insurance Market Report by Type (Individual, Group), Service Provider (Public, Private) 2024-2032," the Saudi Arabia health insurance market size reached US$ 7.4 Billion in 2023. Health insurance refers to a type of insurance coverage that wholly or partially covers the medical and surgical expenses of an insured individual. It reimburses the medical and surgical expenses incurred for the treatment of injuries or illness to the insurer or pays for the same to the care provider directly. The insurer must develop a routine premium structure to pay for the opted insurance plan to avail numerous benefits at an affordable price point. Health insurance can also include additional services like diagnosis, medical check-ups, dental care, psychiatric care, treatment for chronic ailments, emergency transportation, and in-patient and daycare management.

Saudi Arabia Health Insurance Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the favorable initiatives undertaken by the Ministry of Health (MOH), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. On account of high healthcare costs in the country and the rising concerns about the quality of care in public facilities, the government is restructuring the healthcare system by privatizing public hospitals and introducing private health insurance schemes. Furthermore, it has not only mandated health insurance for citizens and foreign workers but also for students and individuals who often stay in the country for a short span. Additionally, the ministry has made it compulsory for private sector organizations to provide health insurance to the employees and their dependents. The advent of affordable insurance plans with customized features that fit the exact need for the consumers is also driving the market growth. Several insurance providers in Saudi Arabia are continually engaged in the designing of novel programs that are aimed at providing a safeguard against exorbitant medical bills. Apart from this, the dominance of sedentary lifestyles has led to the increasing incidences of obesity and diabetes in the country. This has consequently created an imminent need for health insurance to cover the growing medical expenses. In line with this, growing health consciousness among individuals has further facilitated the market growth. Rising population, including the expatriates and increasing employment opportunities, along with the growing consumer expenditure capacities, are some of the other factors creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 12.1 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
