Today’s tourism resurgence is contributing to the growth of the global travel insurance market, according to The Business Research Company’s newly released ‘Travel Insurance Global Market Report 2022’.

It only makes sense that increases in travel itself and trip insurance would go hand in hand. Travel insurance companies complement the tourism sector by offering travelers plan packages that cover issues like medical emergencies, flight cancellations or delays, passport losses, and the misplacement or loss of their luggage.

The report points out that in 2019, the last “normal” year prior to the pandemic, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) recorded 1.5 billion international tourist arrivals worldwide, which represents a four-percent increase over the previous year.

With the travel sector continuing to bounce back throughout 2022 and being on track to achieve pre-pandemic revenue levels in 2023, the travel insurance market is bound to grow alongside it, especially given the ongoing unpredictability of air travel, the state of the economy and the ongoing Russian war on Ukraine.

The Business Research Company reports that the size of the global travel insurance market is projected to increase from $16.05 billion in 2021 to $18.81 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2 percent. And, looking further ahead, the global travel insurance market share is forecast to grow all the way up to $32.61 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 14.7 percent.

Key Market Trend: Advanced Technologies

In examining the major trends affecting today’s market, The Business Research Company noted that many of the travel insurance sector’s major players are prioritizing the incorporation of new technologies within their operations to strengthen their market position. The report highlights an instance where one company has implemented an artificial intelligence (AI)-based cashless claims settlement process, thereby automating the claims authorization process. To enable this innovation, the company has utilized various algorithms using Cognitive Computing, along with Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
