Indonesia's insurance industry is experiencing a period of rapid growth, with both the life and non-life segments reflecting healthy gains in terms of premium value throughout our forecast period as well as market penetration (though this remains relatively low for non-life). Healthy domestic economic growth is providing a boost to the insurance market, while regulatory changes are further enabling sustainable longer term growth.

The non-life segment in Indonesia is dominated by motor vehicle insurance, which accounts for around a quarter of non-life insurance in the country. We expect to see double digit growth in terms of motor vehicle insurance from 2015 onwards, as the national fleet expands, including passenger cars, commercial vehicles and the heavy truck fleet, based on domestic economic growth.

The overall non-life segment is relatively under-developed, with low penetration of around 0.5% (premiums as a percentage of GDP), which we expect will remain largely unchanged in the short term.
