Health insurance is becoming an important segment of the non-life insurance industry in the Middle Eastern region. The major force behind the industry’s strength in recent years has been the implementation of compulsory health insurance schemes in various jurisdictions.
UAE and Saudi Arabia are the fastest growing health insurance markets in the GCC countries. A reasonable size of population, largely composed of expatriates and a receptive local community, makes the UAE and Saudi Arabia the largest insurance market in the Gulf. A combination of factors such as demographics, interest rate fluctuations, government spending and regulations, and economic growth all affect health insurance industry dynamics highly. Better health care facilities along with increasing spending on health care are favoring the growth of health insurance industry.

However with immense growth opportunities in the Middle East countries, the health insurance market faces challenges in terms of rising premium costs, inadequate regulatory regulations, and cyber risk mismanagement. Increased competition, huge government need, interest rate fluctuations are few other bottlenecks in the growth of the industry.
