Top 7 Vendors in the Micro-insurance Market in the Philippines from 2016 to 2020...
Philippines , October, 03 2016 -
Technavio has announced the top seven leading vendors in their recent micro-insurance market in the Philippines report. To calculate the market size, Technavio considered the total premium from the micro-insurance segment in the Philippines.
The insurance industry in the Philippines is facing a massive pricing cycle. As a result, micro-insurance companies in the Philippines are trying to expand their market share by offering new and cost-effective services, which target low-income populations in that nation. Such actions are designed to help the micro-insurance companies in the Philippines to capitalize on the growth factor, diversify risks, and improve insurance industry valuations during the forecast period.
Competitive vendor landscape
The growth of the nominal GDP in the Philippines is largely driven by the micro-population segment. Hence, a boost in the GDP of APAC countries indicates growth in these segments, which contributes to more opportunities. Therefore, many multinational companies (MNCs) and state-owned companies are actively taking advantage of the untapped potential and the opportunities that the Philippines offers. So it is important that firms focus more on the huge untapped potential in this market.
“There is an increase in technological innovations in the micro-insurance industry. The recovery of the global economy, future innovations, and the sustainability of a growing global population rely on micro-insurance companies as these are considered economic growth engines,” says Amit Sharma, a lead research analyst from Technavio.
In response to high demand for micro-insurance products, micro-insurance companies must focus on innovation to gain a larger share of the markets. Micro-insurance customers are largely dependent on insurance providers as they are less aware of micro-insurance products. The low-income customers often do not have knowledge or proper understanding of the products and this lack of awareness about various sources of microfinancing products is hampering the growth of micro-insurance companies.
