THE RESHAPED LANDSCAPE OF MALAYSIAN INSURANCE

AI is poised to play a crucial role in Malaysia’s next big step — By 2021, AI will allow the rate of innovation to almost double (1.8x) and increase employee productivity improvements by 60% in Malaysia, according to an AI study put forth by Microsoft & IDC-ASEAN Research Group. Malaysia, drawn by its strong economic growth, expanding middle-class income and rising insurance penetration levels, is witnessing a new era of innovation – with AI leading the charge. While ‘motor’ remains the largest class of insurance with a market share of 45.6%, followed by fire at 19.2% and marine, aviation and transit (MAT) at 8.2%; Takaful has been outpacing conventional insurance in the Islamic peninsula.

Malaysia is also moving towards a cashless society with infrastructure being put into place to facilitate e-payments which have more than doubled per capita from 2011 to 2019. For insurers, claims settlement will represent a large customer service touch point, during this transition.

Claims Automation is poised to transform the insurance customer experience in Malaysia.
