Jan 9, 2018

Overview of the Insurance Industry

The insurance industry plays a pivotal role in the sustenance of the global economy by covering personal and business risk. Amid the variations in the growth rate, the insurance industry witnessed a considerable growth in the insurance premiums by an increase of 3.8% in 2015. Markets in Asia, North America, and Western Europe has been some of the major contributors towards this growth. Also, insurers are taking effective measures to re-orientate their offerings to rebalance their product portfolios and enhance their business offerings. Although the insurance industry is witnessing a promising growth owing to the increasing rates and reducing regulatory hurdles, several factors may challenge the growth of this market in the coming years. These include:

Relative advances in technology: New technologies may disrupt the traditional model of insurance. With rapid changes in innovations, insurers are under pressure to revise their internal operations and business strategies to stay relevant inspite  of the competitors.

High penetration of cyber risks: One of the biggest challenges for the insurers is to assess the impact of threats on the company. As cybersecurity breaches can remain undetected for a considerable time frame, it will further affect the customers and other stakeholders. The growing concerns on the concentrations of cyber risk and further, the ability to offer real protection to the clients will affect the growth of the industry over the years.

Aging workforce: The average age of the workforce has increased, and organizations are witnessing a large number of retirees within a stipulated time. To counter this, prominent organizations are facing immense pressure to invest in talent and further manage age concentrations to ensure stability and maintain balanced production.

To address these challenges and optimize their service offerings, leading organizations in the insurance industry are utilizing a cost model analysis engagement.request free proposal
