Market Developments

Insurtech has advanced dramatically around the world and brought change to global insurance markets. Novel services using cutting-edge IT, such as new insurance schemes using small-amount short-term insurance, telematics insurance and P2P insurance, are anticipated to continue revolutionizing global insurance markets.

Japanese insurance companies have been increasingly using big data, AI, IoT and other similar tools, while venture companies have begun to generate new types of insurance services, which are drawing attention as they are assimilated into the Insurtech market.
