TRIBUNBATAM.id, BATAM - The current global pandemic is considered to have two sides of influence for national insurance.

This is due to Covid-19 pandemic not only pressing the economy, but also threatening the health and life of the community.

This condition causes Covid-19 pandemic to have two sides of influence for the insurance sector.

The increase in demand for insurance in several products, such as health and life insurance, is because people want to protect themselves from a pandemic.

Even so, on the other hand, people's purchasing power is depressed so they stay away from tertiary needs first. It is known, so far insurance has been seen as a tertiary need.

According to BI data, Indonesia's economic growth of minus 5.3 percent in the second quarter of 2020 has undeniably affected the insurance industry.

Based on economic theory and insurance economics, the demand for insurance is influenced by several factors. One of them is economic growth.

Economic growth will also increase the demand for insurance. This is because the object of insurance is actually the risk of all assets or interests, both goods, services and people that drive the economy.

The currently weakening economic condition has an impact on business operations, either to decline or even to a halt. This condition causes risk to decrease, so that demand for insurance weakens.
