New Study: Indonesia Insurance Report Q3 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Jul 05 2016

Indonesia's insurance market offers substantial growth potential. The country is home to a large population and the currently low rates of penetration and density mean there is scope for both life and non-life insurance to develop rapidly from a low base. We expect premiums to grow rapidly over the forecast period, particularly in terms of basic motor and property lines, making Indonesia an attractive market for potential investors. There are, however, some regulatory barriers to development, while low average household income levels also remain a major hindrance.

Key Updates and Forecasts

Indonesia's Financial Services Authority (OJK) is promoting transparency in the insurance sector and is reportedly keen to see insurers which have a significant share of foreign ownership go public. The industry also awaits clarification on the expected cap on foreign ownership.

Rates of penetration and density, although currently low, continue to improve in Indonesia's life insurance sector, supported by steady premium growth. In US dollar terms we expect premiums to grow by an average of 11.7% annually between 2016 and 2020, reaching USD14.7bn by the end of the forecast period.

Slightly stronger growth will be seen in the smaller non-life insurance sector, where premiums are forecast to reach USD6.3bn in 2020, up from USD3.9bn in 2016. Growth will be led by the dominant motor and property insurance lines, which together account for over half of premiums written.
