New market study, "Russia Insurance Report Q4 2015", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 07 2015

Insurers in Russia face extremely difficult short - to medium- term trading conditions, with a c ontracting economy, the impact of international sanctions and a collapse in consumer confidence contributing to a decline in both life and non-life insurance premiums over 2015. In the medium term the market does offer considerable growth potential, with an increasingly robust regulatory environment supporting a more sustainable insurance sector ; however , barriers to foreign entry remain and many domestic insurers lack sufficie nt capital to survive the short- term market decline.

We are currently forecasting high double-digit declines in terms of both life and non-life insurance premiums in 2015, when measured in US dollar terms. A combination of factors including the decline in global oil prices and affect of EU and US sanctions mean we are forecasting a 5.2% contraction in Russia's GDP in 2015 with only minimal growth expected in 2016. Alongside this we expect private financial consumption to fall by 8.5% in the short term following a rise in unemployment, decline in real wages, and high household debt. This will impact heavily upon the smaller insurance firms which are already struggling to maintain new, higher, solvency requirements. As such we expect to see further consolidation of the market over the coming months.
