New market study, "Poland Insurance Report Q2 2015", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Feb 18 2015

As the largest insurance market in Central and Eastern Europe, Poland presents considerable opportunity for multinational insurers and other investors with penetration rates still extremely low relative to Western European markets. As market regulation improves and demand for insurance coverage increases, the country is seeing a steady flow of new entrants from the surrounding region with the growing presence of multinationals helping to drive steady premiums growth and a gradual improvement of standards of practice.

While total premiums growth in the Polish insurance market has been somewhat underwhelming over the past year, 2015 should see that market begin to outperform others in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region as well as Western Europe. A stable economy and steady growth in employment and income levels are helping to support demand for insurance products including property and life insurance. These trends will be furthered by an anticipated fall in interest rates in 2015 which will free up disposable income for purchases of non-essential items such as insurance. However, conversely, a reduction in the central policy rates will lead the Polish zloty to depreciate over the course of the year, leading to a contraction in overall premiums of around 4-5% in USD terms.

With the currency expected to regain much of its strength from 2016 onwards, we expect USD premiums growth rates to trend upwards into the high single-digit range across the life and non-life sectors, with both markets set to expand at a similar rate over our 2015-2019 forecast period. Alongside external divers such as increasing income levels and life expectancy, we expect much of the sector's development to be organic. An improvement in distribution channels through methods such as bancassurance will extend coverage to a greater range of customers, while tighter underwriting practices will result in a lower proportion of premiums being ceded to claims and reinsurance...
