According to a recent research report by SkyQuest, the global Cyber Insurance market is projected to reach a staggering USD 79.75 billion by 2030, with a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.7% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2030.

Additionally, industry-specific regulations and compliance mandates are also contributing to the market’s expansion.

Cyber insurance is a specialised form of insurance that provides coverage to businesses against the financial losses incurred due to cyber attacks. These losses can include expenses associated with repairing or replacing compromised systems, notifying customers about data breaches, and defending against legal actions. With the increasing number and sophistication of cyber attacks, the demand for cyber insurance policies has witnessed significant growth.

The report highlights the substantial growth expected in the standalone cyber insurance policy segment during the forecast period. These policies offer comprehensive coverage and enable insurers to adapt to evolving cyber threats more effectively. The flexibility of standalone policies allows policyholders to mitigate risks associated with emerging cyber threats.

In terms of application, the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors are leading the way due to the increasing cybersecurity risks faced by these industries. Stricter regulations and compliance requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the United States, mandate the protection and privacy of patient information. Non-compliance can result in significant financial and reputational risks. Cyber insurance provides financial protection and assists organizations in meeting regulatory obligations, making it an appealing option for healthcare organizations.

North America emerges as a prominent market in the Cyber Insurance industry due to its heightened cybersecurity awareness. The region has robust data protection regulations, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and HIPAA, which require organizations to safeguard personal and healthcare data. Compliance with these regulations often necessitates the adoption of cyber insurance coverage to mitigate potential financial risks associated with data breaches.

The report also highlights key developments within the Cyber Insurance market. In January 2023, Chubb announced a partnership with Google Cloud to offer cyber risk management solutions to businesses. In February 2023, AXA XL partnered with Mimecast to enhance protection against email-based cyber attacks.
