The India life insurance sector happens to be the 10th largest life insurance market in
the world and the 5th largest in Asia. There are around 24 life insurance companies in
India, which includes the Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), the state-run
entity. The private sector has shown significant growth since 2000 and it accounted
for 51.5 per cent of the life insurance sector, on an RWRP basis, in financial year
2016. Foreign insurance companies can hold up to 49 per cent stake in Indian
insurance firms, up from the earlier limit of 26 per cent.
The insurance penetration levels are low in India as compared to its peers in the rest
of Asia. India is still an under-penetrated insurance market with a life insurance
penetration of 2.7 per cent in financial year 2015, as compared to 3.7 per cent in
Thailand, 7.3 per cent in South Korea and a worldwide average of 3.5 per cent in
2015. At US$43 in financial year 2015, the insurance density in India also stayed very
low as compared to other developed and emerging market economies.
