The demand for financial protection policies increased during the course of the Covid-19 pandemic. There was a huge surge in ratios of bad debt with the inability to pay loans with job losses, salary cuts, and disruptions in business operations. 

As the number of claims increased over the pandemic, premiums for financial protection policies rose. Digitization arrived in the global financial protection industry to streamline and accelerate this process. 

The long-term financial protection segment accounted for the highest share in 2020, contributing three-fifths of the global financial protection market. This type of protection is expected to maintain the lead position throughout the forecast period. Moreover, this segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2030.

This type of protection provides insured people the peace of mind by allowing them to keep up with monthly expenditures like rent, mortgage, groceries, and utility bills. This segment is expected to offer lucrative opportunities during the forecast period. 

The payment protection segment contributed to the largest share in 2020, accounting for three-fourths of the global financial protection market and is expected to lead in terms of revenue during the forecast period. 

The mortgage payment protection is expected to manifest the largest CAGR of 5.6% from 2021 to 2030. This is due to the ability of the insured to continue paying off the mortgage even when they are not receiving a secure income.

Europe followed by North America held the highest market share in 2020, contributing to around one-third of the global financial protection market. Europe is expected to continue its dominance in terms of revenue by 2030. However, Asia-Pacific is estimated to portray the highest CAGR of 6.1% from 2021 to 2030, owing to rise in inequality and the need to build resilience to crises such as economic & financial crises and natural disasters.
