In 2024, the insurance industry in Asia is experiencing challenges such as rising property and auto rates, geopolitical uncertainties, and increasing regulatory scrutiny. However, technology is emerging as a key driver for insurers to navigate the turbulent landscape. A survey by Gartner revealed that 58% of insurance respondents have allocated increased funding for digital innovation. This trend towards digitalization and business automation, accelerated by COVID-19, is expected to continue into 2024, with insurtech playing a crucial role in enhancing insurers’ performance through modern technologies.

Some key technological trends shaping the insurance sector in Asia-Pacific include hyper-personalization driven by AI/ML, NLP, and cloud-based services; the growth of embedded insurance; and the drive for operational efficiency. Hyper-personalization is meeting evolving customer expectations for tailored experiences, while embedded insurance offers convenience and simplified processes for both consumers and insurers. Additionally, there is a focus on operational efficiency, with insurers leveraging technologies like automation and AI to cut costs and enhance productivity.
