Additionally, increasing hospital stays and expensive treatment procedures have increased the affordability concerns for patients. The growing need to ensure an efficient flow of treatment without any kind of inconvenience being caused to the patients is further expected to propel the market growth over the next few years. Besides, increasing healthcare awareness coupled with supportive government policies & schemes is further expected to fuel market growth. However, heavy competition due to the emergence of new players and low-profit margins might hamper the market growth through 2026F. Also, stringent regulations and a longer duration of claim reimbursement might further restrict the market growth. Moreover, lack of awareness and adoption of health insurance policies, especially in underdeveloped economies is expected to impede market growth. Furthermore, the global health insurance market is likely to be hampered by the restricted availability of health insurance plans that are only available for particular hospitals and clinics, as well as the absence of some costly medical treatments.
