Recently released market study: Thailand Insurance Report Q2 2011

Fast Market Research recommends "Thailand Insurance Report Q2 2011" from Business Monitor International, now available

PRLog - Apr. 6, 2011 - Key Insights On Thailand's Insurance Sector

Writing in March 2011, data for 2009 is based on actual data and estimates for 2010 have been amended in order to take into account the statistics for the first eight months of the year that have been released by Thailand's insurance regulator. We estimate total premiums of THB399,102mn. This includes non-life premiums of THB122,146mn and life premiums of THB276,955mn. In 2015, the corresponding figures are forecast to be THB490,382mn, THB173,183mn and THB317,199mn. In terms of the key drivers that underpin our forecasts, we predict non-life penetration to rise from 1.22% in 2010 to 1.25% in 2015, and for life density to increase from US$133 per capita to a still modest US$165 over the same period. BMI's proprietary Insurance Business Environment Rating for Thailand is 59.3.

The figures that have been published by the Office of the Insurance Commission (OIC) indicate that despite Thailand's political problems and a mixed economic outlook there was major improvement in the fortunes of the insurance sector in 2010. If our estimates are correct, 2010 will be the first year of doubledigit growth in the fragmented non-life segment since 2006. The 24% increase in life premiums that we estimate for 2010 is likely to be the fastest expansion between 2005 and 2015.

The competitive landscape in Thailand has remained broadly unchanged in the last few years and is arguably more similar to that of the Philippines than any other country in the Asia Pacific region. As is the case in the Philippines, the local subsidiary of AIA is the dominant player, with a typical market share of about 30%. Although local institutions are significant - given that Thai Life, Muang Thai Life and Bangkok Life are the second, third and fifth largest players - it is the subsidiaries or associates of multinational giants that predominate. AXA, Allianz, Manulife, Prudential plc and ING - all of which have substantial businesses across the region - are represented. Interestingly, there are also associates of New York Life, ACE Life, Cardif and Generali, even though Thailand is not the most prospective national market in the region.

As is the case in the Philippines and Indonesia, the Thai non-life segment is extremely fragmented, in that none of the insurers are large in anything other than a local context. Given that auto insurance accounts for about 60% of all premiums in the segment, the leading auto insurance companies are also the top nonlife companies overall. Local group Viriyah, with about a quarter of the market for autos insurance and 16% of the non-life business, is the largest player in the segment. Bangkok Insurance, Dhipaya Insurance and Synmungkong Insurance, which account for 5-7% of non-life premiums each, are the next largest. The foreign insurance companies, which are numerous, tend to feature prominently in marine and transportation and commercial lines.
