Asia-Pacific Health Insurance Market Scope and Market Size
Asia-Pacific health insurance market is segmented on the basis of type, services, level of coverage, service providers, health insurance plans, demographics, coverage type, end user and distribution channel. The growth among these segments helps you analyse niche pockets of growth and strategies to approach the market and determine your core application areas and the difference in your target markets.
- On the basis of type, the market is segmented into products and solutions. The product segment is dominating in the market due to low penetration of solutions in a significant number of countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The health insurance sector is varied and unique in Asia-Pacific with countries such as China and Japan with well-established public health insurance systems while other countries harbouring a large uninsured population that provides ground for future growth. The steady growth in this sector coupled with continuous reforms in different countries in the Asia-pacific region which is fuelling the growth of insurance policies in the region. For instance, the Insurance regulatory development authority in India (IRDAI) is working towards enhancing the scope of health insurance coverage and benefits for certain ailments/diseases and medical procedures that were excluded previously.
- On the basis of services, the market is segmented into inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, medical assistance and others. Inpatient treatment is dominating the market as most of the insurance companies offer health plans with high cover or limit along with other types of plans. The cost of inpatient services is also significantly higher than that of outpatient services. For instance, as per a study conducted in the Hubei province of China to study the per capita outpatient expenditure, inpatient expenditure and total medical expenditure of the population, it was observed that the expenditure on inpatient services was significantly higher as compared to outpatient services.
- On the basis of level of coverage, the market is segmented into bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Bronze level of insurance policies coverage holds the highest share as they have significantly lower premiums as compared to other types of coverage. For instance, in several Asian countries such as Thailand where health insurance premiums are unaffordable to the large numbers of low income people, low insurance premiums are readily favourable.
- On the basis of service providers, the market is segmented into public health insurance providers and private health insurance providers. Public health insurances are dominating the market due to well-established public health insurance system in large countries such as China. However, private health insurance providers’ sectors expected to grow at a higher CAGR with the increasing cost of healthcare. As the cost of overall healthcare infrastructure increases, the gap being created between the affordability of the government and total coverage offers significant opportunity for private health insurance to step in.
- On the basis of health insurance plans, the market is segmented into point of service (POS), exclusive provider organization (EPOS), indemnity health insurance, health savings account (HSA), qualified small employer health reimbursement arrangements (QSEHRAS), preferred provider organization (PPO), health maintenance organization (HMO) and others. Point of service (POS) plans are dominating the Asia-Pacific health insurance market as most countries do not have any established customer facing plans and most plans largely resemble POS plans offering the mixed benefits of fixed physician and a random network of providers.
- On the basis of demographics, the market is segmented into adults, minors and senior citizens. Adults are dominating the market being the primary working population with disposable income, adults play a significant role in cost sharing and aiding the growth of the health insurance market in Asia-Pacific. As a result most private health insurance companies target young adults as potential customers. For instance, Medibank offers low premium hospital cover to 18-29 year olds with the aim to make health insurance more accessible for younger Australians.
- On the basis of coverage type, the market is segmented into lifetime coverage and term coverage. Lifetime coverage is dominating the market as most insurance payers, especially publically funded health insurance plans offer lifetime coverage as a result of several government interventions, lifetime renewal is applicable for health insurance even for private health insurers. For instance, IRDAI mandates lifetime renewability and private insurers cannot refuse to grant renewal of mediclaim policies on arbitrary grounds.
- On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into corporates, individuals and others. Corporates are dominating the market due to regulations in several countries mandating employers to provide health insurance to all the salaried employees.
- On the basis of distribution channel, the market is segmented into direct sales, financial institutions, e-commerce, hospitals, clinics and others. Direct sales are dominating the market as it includes insurance companies, agents as well as brokers. For instance, in India, a large number of individuals and families buy health insurance policies through brokers and agents whereas employers directly contact insurance companies to seek health insurance policies for employees.
