The insurance industry has not witnessed any revenue breakthrough product in the past few years. At the same time, legacy infrastructure and resistance to change traditional business processes has fundamentally slowed down the ability of insurers to innovate and respond to evolving consumer needs. Proliferation of connected devices, pervasiveness of digital technologies, and rise of the shared economy has now created opportunities for insurers to launch differentiated products and create superior customer experiences.

A combined effect of all such factors has driven the growth of InsurTech firms – startups that leverage technology to create value for stakeholders in the insurance industry. Although currently we see dominance of enablers who are aiding traditional insurers to better serve their customers, the insurance sector is witnessing aggressive growth in the number of disruptors that are transforming business models to cater to customer demands in niche segments.
