A magazine to reckon with in the Fintech segment, Banking Frontiers over the past three decades has carried the legacy of urgent and detailed cover-age of all the latest happenings in the industry. Over the past few years, the brand has diversified digitally, though still holds the fort in the print segment.

Globally, the insurance market penetration is around 7.3 per cent. In India, it stands at 3.7 per cent, which is relatively low compared to global peers. To ensure further market penetration, there is a need for the industry to strategise and devise more tools and ways to reap results. There has been witnessed a lack of awareness, non-clarity of the benefits, the hassles of claims, lack of trust and economic instability, etc has added to the averseness towards purchasing an insurance. Though, a lot has changed in the past few years with increased transparency. However, the non-life insurance segment in India is still below 1 per cent.

With the balance of power shifting towards consumers, the industry faces the current crop of challenges of lower penetration, dealing with the on-demand economy, more catastrophic events, staying ahead of challenges and even reigning in the cusp of new technologies.

India has 24 life and 34 non-life insurance companies, 29 TPAs, 25 lakh agents and numerous underwriters. In 2020, the segment added 1.7 lakh new agents despite the pandemic, an indicator of healthy growth backed by popular realisation to invest in insurance during the pandemic and the resultant lockdown.
