Just Published: "Estonia Insurance Report Q3 2016"

Estonia's insurance industry is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period between 2016 and 2020, particularly in the larger non-life sector. Similar to many developing markets, Estonia's non-life sector is dominated by basic lines including motor and property insurance - each of which is expected to grow over the next five years, bolstered by wider economic growth as well as the diversification of available product lines. In the life sector, gradual improvements in average household income rates will support growth, though affordability remains a hindrance to stronger growth. Already a highly consolidated market, the small size of Estonia's life and non-life sectors means we do not expect to see any major new entrants in the near-term.

Key Updates And Forecasts

Nordic insurance company Gjensidige Group is merging its insurance subsidiaries in the Baltic states. The merger is expected to complete by Q3 2016 and once complete the company, which covers operations in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will be headquartered in Vilnius.

At present we expect life insurance premiums to grow by a relatively sedate 2.7% in local currency terms in 2016. Currency movements mean premiums will fall by 0.9% in US dollar terms to USD103mn. Similar growth is expected over the remainder of the forecast period.

Stronger growth is expected in the larger non-life sector, where premiums are forecast to grow by 5.4% in local currency terms in 2016, translating to 1.6% growth in US dollar terms to USD446mn. The most robust growth will be seen in well established lines such as health and property insurance.
