Global travel insurance market could be worth $35 billion by 2027 – ITIJ

The global travel insurance market is expected to be worth US$35 billion by the year 2027, with a forecast rise in value of around eight per cent in the US market alone, according to a research study by Global Market Insights Inc.

Demand for travel insurance is forecast to be driven primarily by growing demand in the tourist industry for high-risk sports activities and adventure tourism. Participants in such activities are expected to be more likely to take out travel insurance to safeguard themselves against potential mishaps.

Global Market Insight also credits the rise in more customisable policies as a key driving factor in the markets projected growth, with interest and awareness in such policies being fuelled in part by the popularity of travel blogs and social media influencers.

This includes:

Other factors which Global Market Insights note will contribute to the growth of the regions tourist industry include:

The projected growth also reflects the expanding tourism sector in places such as North America, which remains buoyant despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a report by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) in October, the regions tourist industry represented approximately $2.2 trillion, but later fell to $1.25 trillion in 2020 as international travel ground to a halt.

Despite this, the WTTC says that the sector is on track to recoup more than a third of that loss this year, with a projected value of $1.7 trillion for 2021 a recovery which the WTTC credits to the successful rollout of Covid vaccines in the US and Canada, coupled with relaxed travel restrictions on the continent.

This is expected to continue next year, with a potential year-on-year rise of 26.4 per cent projected for 2022 which will bring the regions tourist industry back to pre-pandemic levels at a value of $2.2 trillion.
