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 entire ASEAN region will face economic headwinds over the coming

year or so, and have left our forecasts broadly unchanged. We think 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 Updates And Forecasts

? In Q416, we have not changed our projections for life premiums. Premiums should grow steadily through

the forecast period thanks to innovation (in terms of product development and distribution) by the

insurance companies - in a country where life insurance plays a central role in the organised savings

landscape. Nevertheless, the market remains very competitive. Zurich International Life stopped

issuing new policies in late 2015. We suspect that other foreign groups will reconsider their commitment

to the market through 2016 and 2017.

? We continue to forecast the non-life segment to grow faster than nominal GDP. We expect that 2016 and

2017 will see sub-par growth in premiums in the non-life segment. The slowdown is, in turn, the result of

the deceleration of China's economy and uncertainty over the prospects for energy prices. From 2018,

though, offshore property & casualty covers, which account for well over two thirds of all business

written by Singapore's non-life segment, should grow by 7-8% annually.

    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: Growth in the Chilean insurance sector will, like the rest of the economy, be highly determined by revenue from the country's main commodity export, copper. Although the economy is diversifying, there are clear trends showing the correlation between the copper industry and volumes of premiums written. While growth in the value of insurance premiums is set to slow in 2016, over the medium term growth will pick up due to improved economic fundamentals as well as p......

    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 46
    BMI View: El Salvador's insurance market is small with a low level of penetration and density that is unlikely to change significantly over the next five years, even though it is set for solid expansion. The nonlife segment will become increasingly dominant as its growth will pass the life segment, helped by strong growth in health premium. Characterised by a large number of small, indigenous players, the non-life segment is ripe for merger and acquisition activity and wo......

    BMI View: As of late 2016, the latest results from the leading insurance companies highlight the dynamism and sophistication of the players in both the life and the non-life segments. In the life segment, demand is being boosted by high savings rates, the central role played by insurers in the organised savings landscape and mainland visitors.

    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: The overall outlook for the non-life sector remains positive. A gradual rise in the rate of real GDP growth over our forecast period should boost incomes and feed into stronger demand for key non-life lines, including motor, property and health insurance, in what is still a market that is very far from saturated, despite being much more developed than the life sector. On a ten year view, our outlook envisages a moderate to modest trajectory for the Omani life in......

Over the coming years, the life sector will continue to expand as the strong, leading companies provide new products to existing clients. In the non-life segment, price competition has hampered the growth of the important motor vehicle sub-sector and will likely continue to do so. Latest Updates And Forecasts - Following the major changes that we made ......

    BMI View: Our revised outlook for the Barbados insurance sector for 2016 and over the course of our forecast period out to 2020 remains largely positive. The non-life sector, which constitutes around two thirds of insurance business in the country, has matured and is beginning to show signs of cooling off, driven largely by the lacklustre growth in the crucial property insurance life. Conversely, we hold a robustly positive opinion of the life insurance segment of Barbado......
