Non-Life Insurance Market Thriving in Russia

Noida, India (PressExposure) August 16, 2009 -- The Russian insurance market is expanding rapidly on the back of rising real income of the population. Non-life insurance sector dominates the Russian insurance market as the growth rate of this sector has been very high over the past five years. The market growth has far exceeded that of comparable CEE non-life insurance markets. Moreover, Russia accounts for more than 5% of the total European non-life insurance market.

Boom in compulsory insurance (primarily compulsory motor TPL insurance and compulsory medical insurance) is the main driving force of the non-life insurance sector, says our new report “Russian Insurance Industry Forecast to 2012”. Non-life insurance is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during 2010-2012. Of the total market, motor, property and medical insurances will account for the majority share during the forecast period.

We have found that the motor insurance is rapidly growing with rising sales of cars. CMTPL cover was made compulsory five years ago and since then penetration has reached around 85% to 90%. The premiums collected in this class grew at a CAGR of around 14% during the period 2005-08.

We have also found that liability insurance sector is steadily growing in Russia, with premiums grew at a CAGR of around 12% from 2005 to 2008.
