Forecast Summary

  • The total value of premiums generated by insurtech platforms – platforms with technology supporting insurance at the heart of their design – will exceed $556 billion in 2025, from $260 billion in 2020; growing by 123%. Insurance providers in the motor, life, home and health industries risk becoming less attractive to potential customers if they fail to capitalise on the benefits that AI underwriting systems can bring.
  • Weakened customer loyalty and the driving down of premiums will cause a seismic change in the insurance landscape in the next five years. Large insurers must focus on using insurtech solutions to improve customer interactions by creating data-driven models, or they will lose market share to newer, digitally-native vendors.
  • Insurtech will affect health insurance particularly strongly, with the value of premiums underwritten by insurtech growing by over 1,000% between 2020 and 2025; exceeding $95 billion globally in 2025.
  • Customer data will be collected and used through wearables, API calls for electronic health records and digital therapeutics as critical to driving digital transformation. Health insurers are advised to redesign their user experience to be digital first, in order to increase user engagement and loyalty
