Key Highlights

  • The non-life insurance market consists of the general insurance market segmented into motor, property, liability and other insurance. The other segment is made up of non-life insurance products including health, travel, and accident cover among others. The value of the non-life insurance market is shown in terms of gross premium incomes. Gross premium income is defined as the insurer’s premium income for the year from its policies, calculated without reduction for reinsurance premiums paid or payable by the insurer. Any currency conversions used in the report have been calculated using constant 2017 annual average exchange rates.
  • The South Korean non-life insurance market had total gross written premiums of $61.7bn in 2017, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.1% between 2013 and 2017. The low interest rate environment will weigh on the insurance market’s growth, with a rate of 1.5% as of September 2018. This is unlikely to change due to concerns about potential risks to financial stability, including those stemming from household debt, which rose to 180% of net household disposable income in 2016.
  • The property segment was the market's most lucrative in 2017, with total gross written premiums of $21.6bn, equivalent to 35% of the market's overall value.
  • Demand for motor and accident-health insurance has been strong in the market in recent years. The rise of deductibles for health insurance in 2015 led to reduced claims for insurers in these policies, but was offset by reduced premiums which have had a stimulating effect on demand over the last three years.
