Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2014 -- By global standards, the size and importance of the Japanese non-life insurance segment is high: the segment's gross written premium reached JPY7.2 trillion (US$89.8 billion) in 2012, equivalent to 6.6% of the global non-life premium, second only to the US. The segment is mature and concentrated with the four leading firms collectively accounting for 79.1% of the segment's written premium in 2011. Despite weak economic development during the review period (2008-2012), the non-life segment achieved positive growth during the period at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.0%. Subsidies provided by the Japanese government on eco-friendly automobiles encouraged growth, generating business for the third-party motor insurance sub-category. The liberalization of bancassurance and the occurrence of the earthquake in 2011 fuelled growth in the property and earthquake insurance categories. These factors, coupled with improving business and economic conditions, are expected to drive growth in the non-life segment over the forecast period.
