Executive Summary
India’s insurance sector is expected to grow even faster than the country’s overall economic growth, opening up new business avenues across the industry. With a large number of insurance providers already operating in the country, the Indian insurance industry has shown early signs of entering a consolidation phase, and an improved distribution infrastructure, the adoption of new channels and differentiated product offerings will continue to change the competitive landscape significantly.
India’s low life insurance penetration rate and the rising awareness of the need for insurance will be key growth factors in the Indian insurance industry. Favorable foreign investment policies and increased capital-raising options will also create an environment for collaborations and joint ventures. India’s reinsurance market is also expected to continue growing, driven mainly by growth in non-life and accident and health insurance.”
