The global cyber insurance market size is expected to reach USD 19.2 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 25.6% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Cyber insurance is anticipated to aid businesses in minimizing losses incurred due to potential threats of cybercrimes such as ransomware, malware, distributed denial-of-service attacks, or other threats, which can severely compromise a network. Cyber insurance covers the liability of a business for breach of data, comprising sensitive customer information such as credit card details, social security numbers, drivers’ license numbers, account details, and health records.
Technological advancements have proliferated the use of Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), thereby positively influencing the use of these technologies at workplaces and homes. However, these developments have created new threat vectors. The insurance industry enables an organization or consumers to minimize cyber risks associated with these emerging threats.
Demand for cyber insurance primarily originated from IT, banking, media, and telecom firms, which are exposed to severe cyberattacks. These firms demand robust cybersecurity structure against malware attacks and loss of confidential information of clients. However, cyberattacks and threats are inevitable as hackers have developed sophisticated ways of targeting different businesses. The types of cyberattacks against businesses are continually evolving and cyber insurance acts as a convenient solution for organizations to receive compensation for financial losses incurred.
Growing awareness of cyberattacks has enabled organizations to understand, address, and diversify their risk strategies. Rising demand for cyber insurance protection coverage in areas beyond retail, healthcare, and financial institutions, such as professional services, is further driving the market. Cyber risk insurance is anticipated to be an alternative way to mitigate damage caused by breach of data. Insurers evaluate the strength of a company’s cybersecurity stance before issuing any policy. However, if an organization has not invested in appropriate cybersecurity solutions, then it may not qualify for insurance.
Stringent legislation concerning cybersecurity in several states in the U.S. has led to greater penetration of cyber liability policies. The U.S. cyber insurance market has witnessed exponential growth in the recent past. Presence of key players in the country is further strengthening the domestic market.
Rapid industrialization in developing economies such as China, India, and other South Asian countries is anticipated to drive the Asia Pacific market. This regional market is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Rising number of small and medium businesses in the region is anticipated to create a substantial demand for cyber insurance businesses.
