Bulgaria Insurance Report Q4 2016

Publisher Name :
Date: 28-Sep-2016
No. of pages: 62

BMI View: Bulgaria's insurance market is among the least developed of the EU states we monitor and is

also less mature than most other markets in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region. Low household

incomes and discretionary spending have constrained the growth of the sector, resulting in the dominance

of compulsory lines such as motor vehicle insurance in place of life insurance and other discretionary lines.

While a favourable economic climate and rising household incomes should support growth in both the life

and non-life sectors over, the expansion is likely to be at a moderate pace. Likewise, multinationals will

continue to gradually increase their exposure to the market through the introduction of new product lines,

as well as through the acquisition of smaller indigenous firms.

Key Updates & Forecasts

? In August 2016, results from stress tests conducted on Bulgaria's banking system showed the country's

banks to have stabilised since the 2014 banking crisis, and are no longer in need of state support. The

outcome has led us to improve our forecasts for credit/financial guarantee premiums and will also help to

support growth in other lines.

? Our core outlook for the wider non-life insurance market remains in place, which is for premiums growth

to turn positive from 2017 in local and USD terms following a decline of 1.4% and 5.1% respectively in

2016. Premiums will grow by 6.2% a year in US dollar terms over 2017-2020 to reach USD1.1bn,

equivalent to an annual increase of 3.2% in local currency terms.

? In the life insurance market we forecast growth of 0.3% in local currency terms in 2016, Translating to a

fall of 3.5% in USD terms to USD215mn. By 2020 premiums will have grown to reach USD278mn

(BGN455mn).

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    BMI View: Kazakhstan's insurance market will remain beyond the radar of the major multinational insurers. Indigenous companies, the majority of which are subsidiaries of local financial services groups, continue to dominate the market, resulting in high barriers to entry. Meanwhile, the historical lack of demand for life insurance and other discretionary insurance products has restricted the development of many lines outside of the core motor and property segments. As suc......

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    BMI View: Singapore's non-life segment is dominated by coverage of commercial risks outside the city state. We remain of the view that the economic headwinds facing the ASEAN region should diminish through 2017 and that non-life premium growth will accelerate. We believe that the life segment will continue to achieve steady growth through the forecast period, thanks to innovation by the insurers in a wealthy country with a structurally high rate of savings.

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: The Slovakian insurance market is relatively small when measured in total volumes of premiums written. Nevertheless, it remains one of the more positive Central and Eastern European regional markets. Premiums are expected to rise and the life segment is expected to post significant growth, supported by an uptick in household incomes. However, the market is vulnerable to regional economic decline, particularly weakness throughout the eurozone, and currency moveme......

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 44
    BMI View: We extend our generally favourable outlook for the Bahamas insurance sector in our quarterly report. The non-life sector is poised to outperform the mature-yet-stable life sector. The overall insurance density in the Bahamas is now higher than USD2,126 per capita in 2017, and insurance premiums are about 8.1% of GDP, leading us to the conclusion that the sector as a whole is rather well developed. Looking forward into 2017 and beyond, we believe that rising inco......

    BMI View: We have made significant forecast revisions in this quarter's latest Q1 2017 report update. The severe currency devaluation undertaken by the Central Bank has resulted in a 48% devaluation of the Eqyptian pound against the US dollar as part of an IMF proposed plan for Egypt to acquire USD13bn in loan funding. Our entire forecast outlook has changed from 2017 onwards as US dollar denominated premiums will get hit significantly harder than previously estimated thi......
