The rise in the demand for life and health insurance policies is expected to drive the market for life and health reinsurance market during the forecast period.COVID-19 outbreak has raised the importance and demand for life insurance in the minds of the people.

The uncertainty of getting contracted with COVID-19 and its high treatment cost in private hospitals is the main reason behind the surge in the demand for life and health insurance policies. For instance, in the fiscal year 2019-2020, Life Insurance Corporation (LIC), India’s largest life insurer, sold around 21.9 million policies which are the highest in the last six years. Therefore, increased demand for life and health insurance policies is expected to impact the market for life and health reinsurance positively.

Munich Re, a German-based reinsurance company, indicated that interest rates, exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic, are impacting the profitability of reinsurers. Due to this insurance covers are likely to become more expensive impacting the growth of the market which in turn will hinder the life and health reinsurance market as well.
