Analyst Review

Stringent government regulations & mandatory marine insurance coverage among ship owners & cargo owners are promoting the growth of the marine insurance industry. Further, the marine insurance market is one of the severely affected industries, as the pandemic has affected global supply chains, disrupting manufacturing output, and causing delays to cargo in transit. In addition, marine insurers are also affected by changing business infrastructure, government regulations, consumer demand, and disruption in supply chain globally. 

However, a considerable number of companies perceive that they have minimum marine insurance exposure. This scenario is changing, and 2020 has witnessed an increase in sale of marine insurance, owing to rapid growth in incorporation of IoT in marine insurance and surge in implementation of analytics & telematics, which has led to increased adoption of marine insurance among ship owners & cargo owners.

The marine insurance market is consolidated with the presence of top providers such as Marsh LLC, American International Group, Inc., Aon plc, and Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. Europe dominated the marine insurance market, in terms of revenue in 2020, and is expected to retain their dominance during the forecast period. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience significant growth in the future, owing to emerging economies and increasing government support toward trading globally. This is projected to accelerate the demand for marine insurance in the region. 

Furthermore, the marine insurance market is particularly brisk in countries, such as India, Australia, China, Japan, Indonesia, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, with high GDP growth and rise in per capita income. Some of the key players profiled in the report include Allianz, AXA, Chubb, Lloyd's, Lockton Companies, Marsh LLC, and Zurich.
