Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Reinsurance in South Korea, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017” research report to their offering.

 

Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2013 -- Reinsurance in South Korea is treated as a category of non-life insurance, and the regulatory structure that applies to non-life insurance also applies to reinsurance. The written premium of the South Korean reinsurance segment grew from KRW5.6 trillion (US$5.1 billion) in 2008 to KRW7.7 trillion (US$6.8 billion) in 2012, at a review-period CAGR of 8.2%. The absence of large natural disasters in South Korea meant that the country’s insurance industry did not record any major losses during the review period. This encouraged the country’s direct insurers to retain the majority of their written premium, which resulted in intense competition in the reinsurance segment. The South Korean reinsurance segment did not, therefore, register strong growth in premium rates, especially in comparison to other developed countries such as Japan and the US.
