Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2007/01/09 - Indian insurance industry is anticipated to witness a 500% growth and reach to US$ 60 Billion in the coming four years, thanks to swelling demand in semi-urban and rural areas, reported industry chamber Assocham.
Assocham stated that semi-urban areas would have a share of US$ 35 Billion and urban areas would account for US$ 25 Billion in the US$ 60 Billion industry.
Life insurance market in semi-urban and rural territories is expected to rise to US$ 20 Billion mark in the upcoming four years from the existing value of less than US$ five Billion. This is because more semi-urban and rural populace would opt insurance cover for a secure future, said Assocham. On the other hand, life insurance market in urban zones is expected to surge to US$ 15 Billion.
As per the paper, non-life insurance business in semi-urban and rural regions would reach to US$ 15 Billion by 2010 while the corresponding value for the urban area is US$ ten Billion.
Anil K Agarwal, President, Assocham, reported that a large segment of rural India is still untouched because of long distances, poor distribution and high return costs. The paper disclosed that the life insurance premium in India is just 1.8% of the GDP as against 5.2% in US and 8% in South Korea.
