From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Jul 19 2016

We continue to hold a positive and stable outlook for the Canadian insurance industry. The Canadian insurance industry is large and well developed, and benefits from the presence of some of the leading global insurers, particularly robust in the life sector. The Canadian financial sector, supporting the insurance industry is well capitalized and robust. The regulatory environment supporting the Canadian insurance sector is strong and the industry also benefits from access to international capital markets which serve to make this an attractive investment destination. Nevertheless, currency fluct uations will result in short- term declines in premiums measured in US dollars. However, in local currency terms both the life and non-life sector will see sustained growth in premiums throughout our current forecast period through to 2020.

Key Updates And Forecasts

We expect to see solid growth in both life and non-life premiums in 2016 and over the course of our forecast period, out to 2020. In 2016, we expect total insurance industry premiums of CADCAD124.2bn, jumping to CAD140.8bn by end of 2020. In US dollar terms, premiums will see a decline in 2016 due to currency fluctuations. We expect total underwritten premiums to amount to USD92bn, posting a -2.7% y-o-y decline.
