Pakistan Insurance Report Q2 2015
BMI View: The Pakistani insurance sector remains one of the more challenging markets we monitor.
Widespread poverty has traditionally limited penetration of insurance coverage to just the highest incomeearners, reducing the opportunities for multi-nationals to enter the market. Meanwhile the proliferation ofsmaller and medium-sized players, particularly in the non-life segment, has further deterred foreigncompanies from entering a congested, low-margin environment. However, recent changes to Pakistan'sinsurance regulatory framework are gradually opening up new areas of the market.
In 2015, new Takaful regulations passed in May 2014 are expected to boost insurance penetration with EFUthe first of several conventional insurance firms expected to begin offering Sharia-compliant products tocustomers. Meanwhile, the growth of the micro-insurance market in 2015 is expected to increasepenetration of insurance coverage among low-income earners. With both Takaful and micro-insurancecurrently focused on the provision of life, rather than non-life products, we expected to see furtherdivergence in the growth paths of the two markets this year. Life insurance premiums are forecast to growby 6.6% in 2015m which is about twice as fast as non-life premiums.
