Dublin, July 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Germany Pet Insurance Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Coverage Type (Liability Insurance, Health Insurance), by Animal Type (Dogs, Cats), by Sales Channel and Segment Forecasts, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The German pet insurance market size is anticipated to reach USD 2.65 billion by 2030. The regional market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 14.6% from 2022 to 2030.

The market growth is attributable to the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic pet health diseases, the rising humanization of pets, and supportive government regulations. For example, liability insurance is compulsory for certain dangerous dog breeds in the states of Saarland, Bremen, Hessen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, and Baden-Wurttemberg.

The COVID-19 outbreak catalyzed the market with a surge in pet adoption and pet health concerns. Wertgarantie Group, the parent company of Agila, reported an exponential rise in the purchase of dogs and cats in Germany in 2020, amid the pandemic. This positively affected the company's pet health insurance business with about 340,000 new contracts. However, this number contrasted the 475,000 veterinary bills processed during the period for the benefit of customers.

As pet owners are becoming increasingly concerned about their pet's health and wellbeing, the demand for pet insurance is expected to increase over time, due to high costs of treatment and surgery, awareness about pet health & diseases, and pet humanization. In addition, changing customer requirements, digitalization in the banking & insurance sectors, and the adoption of veterinary telehealth is estimated to fuel the market growth.

Intuitive pet insurance plans, quick checkouts, and offering online management of pet plans are some of the common features offered by fully digital insurance companies or Insurtech companies in the country. These trends are expected to continue during the forecast period.
