Global InsurTech Industry Report 2022

MUNICH | PARIS | LOS ANGELES | NEW YORK | July 18th, 2022 –– Drake Star is excited to publish the Global InsurTech Industry Report 2022, which provides an extensive analysis of interconnected trends, funding, and M&A activity and outlook for the transaction landscape in the InsurTech sector while profiling the most innovative and disruptive companies in the industry. According to our research, the widespread adoption of new technologies in the insurance industry in recent years has resulted in elevated InsurTech M&A activity, with >70 deals completed by June 2022 and a 60% increase in total InsurTech transaction volume in 2021.

Evolving consumer expectations for seamless service drive the evolution of the InsurTech industry, and insurers need to satisfy their customers while growing profitability and reducing operational costs. These expectations and needs now coincide with the increased availability of massive datasets and tools to manage, navigate and utilize them by applying innovative technology solutions.

Despite the current downturn in the InsurTech market (especially B2C business models), we are optimistic that the market will recover and meet the expectations. However, we also expect a massive market consolidation.

  • Global InsurTech market volume reached $10.6B in 2021 and is expected to grow to $158.9B by 2030
