Key Market Trends

Emerging Countries Driving the Market Growth

Emerging countries will remain the growth engine of the global economy and insurance industry over the next decade, reflecting a continuing shift of economic power from west to east. Emerging economies together will account for 60% of global growth in 10 years' time. The seven largest emerging markets will contribute up to 42% of global growth, with China on its own contributing 27%. Economic growth also drives growth in the insurance sector, with the emerging markets' share of global premiums forecast to increase by about 50% over the next 10 years.

Growth-enabling regulation helps increase insurance penetration in emerging markets and create a social safety net, pointing to governmental policies that promote insurance take-up, help build financial resilience of households and develop certain industries. For example, compulsory motor third-party liability (MTPL) insurance can protect drivers against liability claims for death or injury to individuals. In addition to this, international solvency standards are being adopted at different speeds by different emerging nations. They are designed to protect consumers, maintain financial stability, and build trust in insurance companies.

The use of technology in insurance is helping make products more affordable, business more profitable and provide access to new risk pools, however, that the adoption of tech is not uniform across emerging markets. While China has become a major enabler of insurtech solutions, adoption has been slower elsewhere.

The growth rate in emerging Asia is forecast to be three times the world average over the next two years and China remains on course to be the biggest insurance market by the mid-2030s.

Growth Opportunities in the Commercial Fleet Market
