The premium accepted by the Australian reinsurance segment grew at a review-period CAGR of 5.7%.
Due to natural disasters such as the Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi in 2011, premium rates for some classes of reinsurance increased by more than 50%. Insurers had to increase prices to remain solvent.
The reinsurance segment is highly competitive, with seven reinsurers providing cover for life insurers and 12 providing cover for non-life insurers.
Competition among reinsurers in Australia is based on price, as capital inflows are high and demand for reinsurance is relatively low.
The segment is expected to consolidate over the forecast period, as smaller reinsurers are expected to merge with larger reinsurers due to high competition and falling renewal rates.
