Ease of doing business for MSMEs: The general insurance industry in India is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.9 per cent from $29.39 billion in 2021 to $41.78 billion in 2026 in terms of gross written premiums (GWP).

“The insurance and specifically general insurance have a very long way to go in India.

Talking to FE Aspire, Yadav explained whether Covid has helped in increasing insurance adoption among MSMEs, the role of MSME associations in increasing adoption, and how affordable existing insurance solutions for MSMEs are.
