Bolivia is landlocked, bordered to the north and east by Brazil, to the south by Paraguay and Argentina, and to the west by Chile and Peru. It falls into three distinct topographical regions: the Andean plateau or Altiplano, the high fertile valleys of the Yungas and Puna, and the lower Oriente. Although abundant in natural resources, it is one of the poorest countries of South America.
Market penetration reflects the low awareness of non-life insurance cover, exacerbated by the unaffordability of such products for the mass market. However, innovation with products, creative marketing and greater customer focus continues to improve as participating insurers seek to increase new business levels. Insurtech remains in the early stages of development but is being driven forward by smartphone penetration and digital technology.
Microinsurance has been highlighted as an important growth area by many life market practitioners and there is an expanding range of products now available. Potential for further development remains high due to the large number of low-income households in urban and rural areas.
