In terms of premium accepted, the Kuwaiti reinsurance segment grew at a review-period CAGR of 7.8%.
The non-life segment significantly contributed to the growth of the reinsurance segment, ceding 45.2% of its written premium to reinsurance, followed by the life and personal accident and health segments, which ceded 41.3% and 36.3% respectively in 2014.
The Kuwaiti insurance industry is dominated by domestic insurers, and the issue of underdeveloped underwriting skills is still prevalent. As a result, insurers cede premiums to reinsurers.
The low risk of catastrophic losses and a demand for reinsurance encourages foreign reinsurers to enter the Kuwaiti reinsurance segment.
Due to a shortage of expertise and the predominance of commercial lines, most primary insurers operating in the industry rely heavily on reinsurers.
