SBI General Insurance expects 20% growth in FY22

SBI General Insurance is expecting close to 20 per cent growth in business in FY22 backed by a steady demand for health insurance products and an improvement in motor insurance starting third quarter of this fiscal.

In the first half (April-September), the non-life insurer had witnessed 14 per cent growth in gross direct premium underwritten to Rs. 4,129 crore, as compared with Rs. 3,620 crore in the same period last year, as per data available on the IRDAI website.

According to Prakash Chandra Kandpal, MD & CEO, SBI General, the non-life industry has come back to the pre-Covid level and has clocked a growth of around 13 per cent in the first half of this fiscal. “The industry is estimated to grow by around 15 per cent during the current fiscal driven mainly by health and motor. Though there may be some challenge for motor due to chip issue, Q3 should be good for motor insurance. We (at SBI General) expect to grow by around 20 per cent. The key areas of focus for us will be health, motor, SME and rural,” Kandpal said.
