2012-09-25 10:33:31 - Reinsurance in Singapore, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Singaporean insurance industry registered robust growth during the review period, due to the growth in offshore business and improved macro- and micro economic fundamentals in Asia Pacific countries. The high number of natural disasters that occurred in Asia Pacific countries during the review period, including floods in Australia and Thailand, earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan, and a tsunami in Japan, forced insurers in these countries to share a greater proportion of their revenues with reinsurance companies in order to avoid substantial losses from similar events in the future. This trend generated significant business opportunities for reinsurance companies operating in Singapore.
â¢ Over the forecast period, the demand for reinsurance in the country is expected to increase due to
the rapid development of the country´s high-profit-margin insurance industry, which performed strongly throughout the past decade.
â¢ During the review period, Singaporean reinsurance companies were exposed to the impact of natural disasters as a result of their significant operations in flood-prone countries such as Australia, Japan, Thailand and New Zealand.
