That depends on if you have triggers that are doing selects.  But in 
general you are correct, analyze wont help inserts.

checkpoint_segments can help insert speed, what do you have that set to?

Also how you insert can make things faster too. (insert vs prepared vs COPY)

Also, if you have too many indexes on a table that can cause things to 
slow down.

Your IO layer needs to be fast too.  Have you watched vmstat and iostat?

Have you read up on synchronous_commit?
