Group Health Insurance Market

According to a report by Allied Market Research, the global group health insurance market was worth $744.04 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% and reach $1.80 trillion by 2031. The growth can be attributed to the rise in the geriatric population and the demand for better employee benefits in corporations. The increased focus on employees' physical and mental health has emerged as one of the key growth factors in the group health insurance market.

Segment-wise, the market is categorized into fully insured plans, mixed-insured plans, and self-insured plans. The fully insured plan segment dominated the market, with the highest revenue in 2021. The growth is characterized by the fact that the insurer takes the whole responsibility for the insurance plan, making it relatively fast compared to other plans. The self-insured plans segment is projected to experience substantial growth over the forecasted period. These plans do not pay for the profit of insurance and provide the flexibility to choose limited benefits, leading to higher savings. Another factor driving the growth of the self-insured plan segment is its low admin costs.

Regionally, the market was dominated by North America in 2021, recording the highest revenue globally. The growth is driven by the expansion of corporate culture in the region and the presence of a large number of multinational corporations in North America. The Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecasted period, driven by the surge in demand to provide insurance to employees in multinational companies in Asia. The rising awareness among people about employee benefits and group healthcare insurance is expected to boost the growth in the market over the forecasted period.
