Workers' Compensation & Other Insurance Funds in the US

The Workers' Compensation and Other Insurance Funds industry has been facing contracting business volume over the past five years. This trend is primarily the result of increasing competition from property and casualty insurers and a high-risk pool of policyholders because of the industry's function as an insurer of last resort. Moreover, low interest rates hurt industry funds' investment income from fixed-income securities, while high unemployment restricted growth in workers compensation insurance premiums. In the coming years, as unemployment continues to decline, the number of employees is projected to grow, stabilizing insurance premiums. Meanwhile, the number of work-related deaths is expected to decrease, which should help boost profitability because occupational deaths result in large workers' compensation insurance payouts.

This industry comprises legal entities (i.e. funds), except pensions and health and welfare-related employee benefit funds, organized to provide insurance exclusively for the fund’s sponsor, firm or its employees or members. Funds are generally established by state governments, industry associations, unions and large companies. Mutual insurance companies are not included in this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
