Goals

To determine the market shares of the top 5 health insurance providers in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Early Findings

Top Health Insurance Providers in Singapore

  • The top 5 insurance providers in Singapore based on assets under management are The Great Eastern Life Assurance Company Limited, AIA Singapore Private Limited, Prudential Assurance Co. Singapore, NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative Limited, and Manulife Singapore.
  • The Great Eastern Life Assurance Company Limited had S$49 billion in assets as of 2018.
  • AIA Singapore Private Limited had S$44 billion in total assets as of 2018.
  • Prudential Assurance Co. Singapore had S$37 billion in total assets as of 2018.
  • NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative Limited had S$34 billion in total assets as of 2018.
  • Manulife Singapore had S$9 billion in total assets as of 2018.

Market Shares

  • The total assets of the 50 largest insurance providers in Singapore were S$232 billion in 2018.
The market shares of the top 5 insurance providers in Singapore can be calculated by comparing their respective assets under management with the total assets of the largest insurance providers.
  • The market share of The Great Eastern Life Assurance Company Limited was then found to be 21.1% (49/232).
  • The market share of AIA Singapore Private Limited was then found to be 18.9% (44/232).
  • The market share of Prudential Assurance Co. Singapore was then found to be 15.9% (37/232).
  • The market share of NTUC Income Insurance Co-operative Limited was then found to be 14.6% (34/232).
  • The market share of Manulife Singapore was then found to be 3.8% (9/232).

Note

The above calculation of market shares is based on the total assets under management for all types of insurance providers. While all the top 5 listed providers also provide health insurance, their market shares have been calculated based on their total assets under management.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Since the market shares have been calculated based on total assets under management, we recommend additional research to determine the market shares of the top 5 health insurance providers in Singapore based on their health insurance premiums or another suitable metric. We also recommend additional research to determine the market shares of the top 5 health insurance providers in Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam as well.
Alternatively, we can focus on finding the top 3-5 health insurance providers in Asia and their market shares.
