The global health insurance market was valued USD1721 billion in 2020 and is forecast to grow at CAGR of 8.55%. The global health insurance market is driven by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, renal disorders, cancer, among others, and has drastically increased the patient pool and rate of hospitalization. This in turn increases the healthcare expenditure incurred by the patients, thereby increasing the demand for healthcare policies covering critical illnesses and treatments. Additionally, mandates about health insurance of employees in different private and public sectors are further expected to fuel the market growth. Furthermore, the sudden outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has made many health insurance policy provider companies expand coverage for the disease in healthcare policies, especially in the United States. Also, Chinese healthcare insurance provider companies are now providing coverage for the after-effects of COVID-19 in their insurance plans as it has been identified that the disease causes long-term organ damages. Moreover, the adoption of advanced techniques and treatment options in the healthcare industry is further expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth through 2026F.
The unhealthy lifestyle patterns of people have resulted in an increase in the number of people suffering from chronic illnesses and an increase in the number of road accidents, and healthcare costs such as high medication costs, among other things. The expansion of the global health insurance sector has been fueled by rising GDP in many countries. Increased demand for health insurance has resulted from increasing costs of quality healthcare and medical services, especially in private hospitals. If a person does not have benefits, hospital care expenses are enough to deplete a person's savings. This necessitates the purchase of health insurance.
