During the review period, the South Korean non-life insurance market grew at a healthy rate backed by growing industrial and commercial construction markets, a positive outlook for GDP growth and increased penetration of insurance products. The South Korean insurance regulatory authority introduced a new risk-based capital (RBC) solvency regime in April 2011, replacing the old solvency model based on the EU’s solvency I regime. The proposed solvency standards will increase insurance companies’ capital requirements, allowing them to assume higher risk and improve their financial stability.
The South Korean personal accident and health insurance market grew at a healthy rate during the review period (2007–2011). This growth was generated by the country’s high traffic accident ratio, ageing population, increased penetration of health insurance products, rising disposable income and improved awareness of the benefits of health insurance. Over the forecast period, the growth in the insurance segment will be driven by the increased participation of private health insurers, as the government implements measures to contain the country’s rising public healthcare expenditure.
he South Korean insurance industry has not recorded any major losses since 2004 due to the absence of large natural catastrophes in the country. The premium retained by insurers continued to increase during the review period and resulted in high competition over reinsurance premium rates. As a result, the South Korean reinsurance market has not registered steep growth in reinsurance premium rates in comparison to Japan or the US.
