Toronto, ON (July 16, 2018) – The global blockchain in insurance market size is expected to grow from USD 64.5 million in 2018 to USD 1,393.8 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 84.9%. Growing number of fraudulent insurance claims, increasing need to have transparent and trustworthy systems, and focus on reducing total cost of ownership are said to fuel the growth of this market. In addition, growth of blockchain as a service and the increasing penetration of Internet of Things (IoT) would create opportunities for the growth of this market. However, uncertain regulatory status and lack of common standards might hinder the overall growth of the market.

Identity management and fraud detection segment is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period

Globally, it is estimated, insurance companies lose over USD 80 billion to frauds every year.Blockchain is one-stop solution to reduce/combat frauds related to insurance and financial sectors.

Traditionally, insurers have been relying upon physical processes to authenticate claim information related to ownership, history item, and authenticity of the product.However, with the introduction of the Distributed ledger technology (DLT) with features, such as encryption and immutability, transparency in transactions is ensured at the highest level, leaving no room for criminals to defraud the system.

All these factors are expected to fuel the overall growth of this segment in the blockchain in insurance market.

APAC is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period

Huge venture capital investments and the testing of blockchain solutions in Asia Pacific (APAC) have increased the adoption of the blockchain technology in the insurance sector in the region.Unlike other regions, the APAC region has the presence of several developed countries that are currently focusing on regulating the blockchain technology.

Blockchain solution providers in the APAC region design and develop user-friendly, cost-effective, and faster processing blockchain platforms to enhance the application reach of DLT in insurance. Large enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) have been adopting venture funding strategies and are investing in R&D activities in an effort to provide technologically advanced blockchain solutions to insurance companies.
