APAC Pet Insurance Market size is poised to reach USD 1.8 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
There has been a significant rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases in pets across the Asia Pacific region. For instance, according to Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI), canine cancer cases have more than doubled in the period between 2006-07 and 2016-17. Thus, rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as cancer and diabetes in pets increases the demand for pet insurance, thereby fostering the regional pet insurance market growth. Furthermore, pet insurance providers including Anicom Holdings Inc. undertake various strategic initiatives to expand their product portfolio as well as customer base.
However, lack of awareness regarding pet insurance products and services are comparatively high in the developing regions. The per capita income for developing countries is less in comparison to developed countries in the west. Private veterinary practices are rarely seen in developing regions, due to which population does not regard pet insurance as a priority.
The accident only segment accounted for USD 24.5 million in 2020 and is expected to show stable growth of 4.9% till 2027. Accident only plans will only provide reimbursement for emergency care related to accident including car injuries. Also, accident only policy is most favorable policy coverage that plays significant role in case of accident, increasing its adoption over the coming years.
The cat segment is predicted to record a CAGR of around 8.7% till 2027. Cats are increasingly being adopted in various countries of Asia Pacific region such as Japan, Australia, India and China among others. For instance, according to the data from Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), in Australia, there were nearly 4.5 million cats in 2019.
