Technavio Announces Top Five Vendors in the Global Microinsurance Market from 2016 to 2020

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#MicroinsuranceTechnavio
has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global
microinsurance market
report. This research report also
lists seven other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the
market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to Technavio researchers, developing markets such as China,
India, Thailand, and Nigeria exhibit a vast opportunity for
microinsurance companies to penetrate into. For instance, Africa is
expected to generate 50%-55% of the revenue on a global scale by 2020,
which highlights the vast job opportunities from an investment
perspective. Many developing countries have 50%-60% of the population in
the lower income groups that remain unserved or underserved. These
population groups continually expand at a rapid pace. Overcoming these
market hurdles like stringent capital norms and difficulty in credit
assessment of the insured are the biggest challenge.

Amit Sharma, a lead research analyst at Technavio, says, “It is
important to focus on the quality of the target market infrastructure,
political stability, and managing operational costs. For example, 40% of
global microenterprises do not perceive Africa as a growth opportunity
destination despite a positive economic growth and a large number of
lower income people. The growth of the nominal GDP in these developing
countries is largely driven by the micropopulation segment. Hence, a
boost in the GDP of these countries indicates growth in these segments,
creating more opportunities.”
