Analyst Review

Dental insurance market providers are looking forward to expand their offerings and provide customized coverages for their customers. In addition, the products segment such as preferred provider organizations (PPO), dental health maintenance organizations (DHMO), and indemnity plans are largely purchased in the market. Therefore, insurers have lucrative opportunities to innovate their existing plans and expand their product offerings in the untapped potential of emerging economies. Nevertheless, a considerable number of companies remain under the perception that they have minimum dental insurance market exposure. However, this scenario is changing and 2019 has witnessed an increase in sales of dental insurance policies, owing to rise in adoption of technologies and increase in support from government schemes in the market.

The dental insurance market is fragmented with the presence of regional vendors such as Aetna Inc., Ameritas, Cigna, and Delta Dental. North America and Europe dominated the dental insurance market, in terms of revenue, in 2019 and are expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to experience significant growth in the future, owing to emerging economies, increase in awareness toward dental insurance, and adoption of technology services in dental insurance product lines. Furthermore, the dental insurance market is particularly brisk in countries such as China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Korea, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Singapore with high GDP growth and rise in per capita income. Some of the key players profiled in the report include AFLAC INCORPORATED, Allianz, AXA, HDFC ERGO Health Insurance Ltd. (Apollo Munich), MetLife Services and Solutions, LLC, and United HealthCare Services, Inc.. These players have adopted various strategies to increase their market penetration and strengthen their position in the industry.
