The global blockchain in insurance market size was valued at USD 766.0 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 1,185.8 million in 2023 to USD 33,547.7 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 61.2% during the forecast period (2023-2030). North America accounted for a market value of USD 254.2 million in 2022.


Blockchain in insurance is a shared distributed ledger technology that garners and provides the individual’s entire transaction history. With this, end users can prevent, detect, and counter frauds that occur in their insurance claims. The primary reason that insurers benefit from implementing this technology is transparency. For instance, whenever claims are transferred to a blockchain-based ledger which is shared among carriers within a peer-to-peer network, it becomes difficult to modify and prevent any fraud from occurring.


Currently, the market is still in its nascent stage, with the majority of the projects in the concept stage. However, companies are continuously engaged in exploring the use cases of blockchain technology in the insurance industry. The primary factor driving the market apart from the increasing investments in relation to the market, is the rising popularity of automated claims management solutions. Furthermore, in the coming years, as the market matures, the technology is expected to transform the insurance industry positively.


COVID-19 IMPACT


Insufficient Demand and Lack of Proper Distribution Channels led to the Moderate Growth of the Market


The COVID-19 pandemic moderately impacted the market due to the slow adoption of the technology among insurers. Companies operating in the market were exploring the potential of applications of the technology even before the pandemic had occurred. There was a considerable spike expected to continue in terms of the growth of the market. However, as the pandemic took place, the market witnessed a slower adoption by the insurers. In addition, a company named AXA scrapped its blockchain-based platform, Fizzy, as the platform failed to meet its commercial targets and was also met by insufficient demand. This showcases that the market did not have enough end users, and the market also lacked the proper distribution channels at the moment.


Furthermore, as the pandemic progressed, companies started examining the capabilities of blockchain in insurance solutions for real-time applications. For instance,



  • September 2019: Marsh introduced a pilot of Risk Exchange, which is an insurance placement platform that is based on blockchain technology. This new launch is expected to digitize payments, documents, and invoices on a blockchain to enable real-time status updates throughout the insurance placement process.


Along with this, some companies raised funding with an aim to continue transforming the insurance industry with blockchain technology. For instance,



  • March 2019: According to a corporate register filling in Switzerland, the B3i raised over USD 16 million in one of its funding rounds. This funding is expected to be utilized for developing a blockchain trading platform that revolutionizes the entire insurance industry.


In the coming years, as the market matures, the growth of the adoption of blockchain-based insurance solutions will increase at an accelerated pace.


Blockchain in Insurance Market Trends


Realizing the Potential of Incorporating Blockchain Technology in Insurance Solutions 


Blockchain technology has been estimated to have the potential to transform the financial service industry. However, many insurers are still slow to adopt this technology into their insurance solutions. The blockchain in insurance concept is being seen at its developing stage, where companies and authorities related to the financial service industry are continuously engaged in realizing the capabilities of this technology across insurance solutions. For instance,



  • February 2023: The chairman of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) confirmed that India was making moves in terms of moving toward personalized and instant insurance. This move highlighted the use of new-age technologies, including public blockchain, ChatGPT, and web 3.0, to build products that cater to these developments.

  • November 2023: A Netherland-based mutual insurer is examining the capabilities of blockchain technology to improve efficiency. Along with this, the Blockchain Insurance Industry Initiative B3i has recently welcomed a new member from the International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation (ICMIF), Achmea.


Thus, such recent developments are showcasing the current trends that are positively shaping the growth trajectory of the market.

RESTRAINING FACTORS


Lack of Standardization, High Initial Costs, and Security Constraints to Hinder Market Growth


The restraining factors of the market include a lack of standardization, high initial costs, and security constraints. A shared and distributed system requires a high level of standardization to operate at an optimal pace. Lack of standardization may result in poor investment decisions. Furthermore, as the industry is still trying out the incorporation of the technology, failure to adopt and implement this technology correctly might result in loss of initial development cost. Several companies started solutions based on blockchain technology but had to cease their operations as the market lacked enough customers and distribution channels at the moment. Moreover, there is always a risk of new types of cyber-attacks, which might restrain the demand for blockchain in insurance solutions.
