Philippines Insurance Report

BMI View: The Philippines insurance sector is increasingly attracting international attention, with multinational insurers drawn to high growth rates and substantial future growth potential. At present the life sector is considera bly more developed than the non- life sector, with higher rates of penetration (premiums against GDP) and density (premiums per capita). Both life and non-life insurance lines are expected to grow at healthy rate s throughout our forecast period, however, with domestic economic growth and a rise in household consumption increasing demand for a range of insurance products. The market remains fragmented, and we expect to see further consolidation among the smaller players moving forward.

In recent years, growth in the Philippine insurance industry has been driven by life insurance, a development indicative of a population growing not only in wealth but also in its awareness of risk. The non-life segment continues to grow, but at a far slower pace than the life segment. Recent natural disasters in the Philippines have brought about an escalation of claims and as a result premiums, with insurers increasingly mindful of the high risk levels in the market; non-life insurance therefore remains out of the reach of many, particularly in those lines most vulnerable to high levels of claims, such as property insurance.

According to the Insurance Commission, over a quarter of the population (around 28mn) purchased micro-insurance products in 2014, greatly expanding coverage (particularly in the non-life sector).

We expect that 2015 will see the Philippines life insurance sector continue to outperform the non-life market in terms of premium growth as insurers, particularly multinationals, step up their distribution efforts and expand coverage to communities outside of the capital and other major cities. The recent relaxation of regulation surrounding bancassurance...
