Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2011/07/04 - The Indian health insurance segment is growing at a fast pace due to the rising participation of private players for increasing their penetration in all parts of the country, says RNCOS.
According to our latest report “Booming Health Insurance in India”, the Indian health insurance market has surpassed other verticals to become the second largest segment in the non-life insurance market. The market owes its stupendous growth rate to the rising health consciousness and concerns over scaling healthcare costs, both in the urban and rural areas. Thus, the segment overcame the unfavorable economic environment to sustain its double-digit growth rate during 2010-11. Moreover, with the government playing a big role in promoting health insurance penetration in India, the health insurance premium is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28% during the forecast period of 2011-12 to 2013-14.
India health insurance market has a lot of potential as over four-fifths of the Indian population currently pays for health services out of pocket. Being largely untapped, the market offers huge growth opportunities for the private players. Although the market is presently dominated by the public sector insurers, the private insurers can surpass them through provision of innovative customized policies to fit the requirements of different classes of the society.
