It usually entails damages from violations of network security, loss of privacy, reimbursement from data breach litigation, and others. In terms of severity and frequency, these attacks have intensified, posing a challenge to individuals, organizations, and countries that have been driving the adoption of solutions for cyber insurance.

Market Highlights

Cyber Insurance Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 26.2% in 2030.

Cyber Insurance Market to surpass USD 22.5 billion by 2030 from USD 4.3 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 26.2% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2019-30. Several problems related to the management of digital security and privacy have been generated by rising digitalization within companies and economies. Due to the increasingly rising occurrence of cybercrimes, digital fraud, attacks, and data breaches, internet and internet risk management has become one of the top priorities for organizations. Owing to the growing effect of cyber-attacks on public safety, economic stability, and government cyber protection, increased penetration of cyber insurance products has led to substantial growth in the cyber insurance sector in recent years. In addition, increased awareness of business interruption (BI) cyber threats and a rising number of mandatory data protection laws for various end-users, such as banking, healthcare, and others, are some of the key factors driving the growth of cyber insurance market.

Cyber Insurance Market: Segments

SMEs segment to grow with the highest CAGR of 26.2% during 2019-30

Cyber Insurance Market is segmented by Organization Size as SMEs and large enterprises. The greater market share in 2018 was accounted for by the large enterprise segment. For the implementation of comprehensive cybersecurity strategies, these organizations have greater spending power. In addition, major companies are increasingly investing in cyber insurance plans to minimize cyber attack-related risks. In addition, cyber insurance may theoretically contribute to improving the risk management of information security in an enterprise. Over the forecast period, this is expected to further strengthen the segment's growth. As they lack the requisite security infrastructure, they are more vulnerable to cyberattacks. They seek to detect, analyze, and respond to emerging threats. By providing first-party and third-party protection coverage, cyber insurance has the power to save such companies. These covers include loss or damage to digital properties, business disruption, online extort, and money theft, as well as the cost of consumer notification, investigation of electronic forensics, multi-media liability, loss of third-party data, and contractual reimbursement from third parties.

Healthcare to grow with the highest CAGR of 26.2% during 2019-30

Cyber Insurance Market is segmented by application into BFS, Healthcare, IT & Telecom, Retail, and others. It is anticipated that the banking and financial services segment will have the largest market share over the years expected. As these services are considered to be the backbone of economies, the security of banking and financial services is a matter of concern. Financial companies and government agencies are increasingly implementing cyber insurance strategies for economies mounting damages in response to rising threats and breaches, and as a better risk reduction policy for any enterprise. Over the forecast era, the healthcare application segment is projected to rise at a maximum CAGR. Online vulnerabilities have been generated by widespread digitalization in the healthcare sector to allow quick access to data from consumers. External and internal risks are exposed to sensitive data. Over the past few years, the healthcare industry has been a prime target for hackers. Healthcare companies are likely to opt for cyber insurance as a convenient choice in the aftermath of cyber-attacks.

Market Dynamics


Rising cyber-attacks and Cyber Insurance Demand in Healthcare Sector

The frequency of cyber-attacks around the world has risen in several ways, with a significant number of cases being documented about personal data breaches, such as email addresses, social security numbers, credit card numbers, passwords, and other sensitive details. The healthcare sector, which is increasingly changing itself technologically, is also largely exposed to such risks with cyber-attacks that lead to both financial losses and data protection compromise. In addition, these cyber threats have a variety of consequences for public safety, economic growth, and public safety. In addition, there has been increased awareness of the dangers of business interruption (BI) and associated insurance products in recent years. As a result, an increase in the number of cyber-attacks and security breaches across the sector drives the growth of cyber insurance premiums in the market.

Rise in Legislations Concerning Cybersecurity Highly Impacting the Market

Numerous steps have been taken by government regulatory bodies and law enforcement authorities worldwide to tighten data security and privacy. The rise of data privacy laws in the US, such as the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and the Health Insurance Portability and Transparency Act (HIPAA), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) are persuading insurance companies to concentrate on cyber insurance initiatives. Increasing digitization has contributed to a tremendous rise in the rate of cyberattacks during the pandemic of COVID-19. It is also expected that complex governance standards and data protection legislation will drive the adoption of the cyber insurance industry in the future.


Soaring cyber insurance costs

The lack of standardized policies is expected to discourage enterprises from purchasing cyber insurance policies, which can be a restrictive factor in the development of the cyber insurance industry. One of the major factors hindering the growth of the cyber insurance industry is the higher cost of cyber insurance. Owing to the ransomware attacks of the last two to three years, insurance firms have had to pay out costly claims. And if the ransom amount is not covered by the cyber insurance providers, the recovery cost is high for the compromised device. The coverage rates are raised by cyber insurance providers to cover the extra costs related to the added facilities, such as hacker negotiation and data recovery assistance during a ransomware attack. As companies are more focused on increasing cyber protection rather than paying the insurance premium, the rising costs of cyber insurance have slowed down the adoption of the policy.
