BMI View: Sanctions relief is set to boost the Iranian insurance market as rising household incomes leads

to growth in life, motoring and health lines, which dominate the market. Smaller lines will also grow, but

from a very low base. Sustained growth and market development will require foreign capital and expertise.

An end to sanctions - apart from US sanctions, which will continue to cause hurdles for businesses with

exposure to US markets - will provide opportunities for tie-ups between local and foreign partners.

However, the state will continue to remain a significant player in the market and this could restrict

opportunities for competition among privately owned insurers.

Key Updates And Forecasts

? Iran's life gross written premiums are set to grow 53% from 2015 in US dollar terms to USD1.27bn in

2020, while the non-life sector will grow just 23% over the same period to USD8.97bn.

? Overall claims are likely to rise as a result of a recent Islamic ruling which put women on a parity with

men; in the past, women were only allowed half the level of men in the event of injury, disability or

death. This will lead to increased accident and motoring insurance claims.

? Rising car purchases will lead overall growth in the Iranian insurance sector with mandatory motoring

insurance. The high level of car accidents will also support higher premiums, although improvements in

car safety due to foreign investment in the automotive sector could mitigate the situation.

? Foreign investors are cautious about tie-ups with local partners due to the dominance of state insurance -

particularly Bimeh Iran's 50%+ market share - and the continuation of US sanctions. Washington's

unilateral sanctions are a source of confusion among investors who are exposed to US markets and are

concerned about potential prosecution.

  • Kazakhstan Insurance Report Q1 2017
    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......
  • Singapore Insurance Report Q1 2017
    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. Latest U......
  • Slovakia Insurance Report Q1 2017
    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......

  • Bahamas Insurance Report Q1 2017
    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......
  • Egypt Insurance Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    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......

    BMI View: The insurance industry in Côte d'Ivoire is experiencing rapid growth, with both the life and non-life sectors developing quickly, albeit from a very low base. Tailwinds for growth include a gradual improvement in household income rates, the development of a broader range of products being made available to potential consumers and the expansion of distribution channels which in the past have relied heavily upon brokers and agents. Structural challenges are signif......
