Consumer Research: Positive Outlook for Hong Kong’s Digital Insurance Market, according to IXT

Data shows more than half of the respondents would buy insurance online

IXT, a global insurtech company, has recently released a consumer research report on Hong Kong’s insurance market, outlining the positive growth prospects and consumer trends coming up with the digital era.

Since the pandemic, new users who started their online journeys out of necessity are now actively seeking digital services. At the same time, as a result of the local and global changes impacting Hong Kong, consumers are rethinking their lifestyle choices to prioritize their physical, mental, and financial well-being. Having one of the most mature insurance markets in the world, Hong Kong insurers are perfectly positioned to address these changing consumer needs and evolve their business through digitalization and product innovation.

“In the past three years, Hong Kong has experienced several bouts of volatility and uncertainty, but the insurance industry has come through stronger, once again proving itself as a financial powerhouse. I am, therefore, incredibly excited by the opportunities the digital world has set ahead of us, and I believe a report like this will be a great starting point for insurers trying to launch in Hong Kong or expand there,” said Michelle Ip, IXT Vice President of Strategy.

Some of the key takeaways from the report are:

  1. The most preferred communication channels are messaging apps and social media sites, echoing the prevalence of online communication in the digital era. 
  2. 76% of respondents shopped online in the previous month, highlighting the emerging opportunity for insurance products to be purchased through digital channels.
  3. Among the mainstream insurance products, respondents are most interested in purchasing the following top 3 insurance products online: medical (10.0%), savings/investment-related (9.6%), and travel (9.4%).
  4. 51% of respondents would buy insurance online from insurers or other distribution channels in the insurance ecosystem through websites or apps.
  5. Around 50% of respondents are neutral towards insurers using their personal data to provide customized recommendations.
  6. Brand reputation (14.7%) is the most important factor for purchasing insurance products.
