New Study: Kazakhstan Insurance Report Q3 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jun 20 2016

The depreciation of the tenge and high rates of inflation will distort growth rates in both the life and non-life sectors of Kazakhstan's insurance market in the short-term, though medium-term prospects remain highly positive. Kazakhstan's insurance market offers significant potential to grow rapidly from a low base, benefiting from steady improvements to average household income rates and the expansion of products available on the market from both domestic and multinational providers, which will boost demand for a range of covers and stimulate steady premium growth.

Key Updates And Forecasts

The economic outlook for Kazakhstan has deteriorated somewhat in recent quarters owing to weakness in the key export - oil - which accounts for half of public sector revenues and 80% of exports. This will impact investment in oil sector infrastructure, which in turn will dampen demand for non-life lines such as transport insurance and engineering cover.

Life insurance premiums are forecast to show strong growth throughout the forecast period, though, as noted above, growth rates will be distorted somewhat by inflation. Overall, life premiums are forecast to increase from KZT121.6bn in 2016 to KZT224.3bn in 2020, with slower growth in US dollar terms.

The larger non-life sector will see steadier growth, with premiums increasing from KZT249.4bn in 2016 to KZT347.0bn in 2020. Following a short-term contraction in 2016, premiums will also grow steadily in US dollar terms and coverage will improve.
