The Indian Insurance sector has observed tremendous growth since its liberalisation over a decade ago. Since the market was opened to foreign players, it has witnessed entry of some of the largest multinational insurers in the market. The relatively low penetration and insurance density among the emerging markets has opened tremendous opportunities to gain market share. However, post the global economic crisis, the industry is facing increased challenges to improve profitability, to manage risk while responding effectively to regulatory changes. Focus has now shifted from mere growth to profitable growth and innovation is expected to play a larger role in the next wave of market expansion.
