BMI View: Slowing economic activity in the Asia Pacific region prompted us to revise down our 2016forecasts for premiums for both Taiwan's life and non-life sector in Q2. This outlook is set to continueowing to relatively stable economic forecasts for China and the Asia-Pacific region over the coming years.Life insurance will continue to drive growth in Taiwan's insurance market owing to an ageing populationand rising savings. In the non-life sector, health insurance will be the key driver of growth, particularly asthe government pushes the need for compulsory health insurance.Key Updates And Forecasts

- Taking into consideration the results announced by the leading financial holding companies in relation to2015 (or periods to September), we estimate growth in life and non-life premiums of 5.7% and 4.4%respectively for 2015 in local currency. Premiums in the two major segments are forecast to increase by2.4% and 6.4% respectively in 2016.

- Particular companies have enjoyed considerably greater growth in first-year premiums as a result oftargeted sales/marketing strategies. Some companies have been affected by the volatility in globalfinancial markets. However, many have restructured their balance sheets to reduce risk and/or to improveinterest income spreads.

- Demographic changes and marketing initiatives mean that several of the leading insurance groups areenjoying strong growth in sales of health and long-term care products.

- Total gross premiums written are expected to grow by 3.1% in 2016 to TWD3,158bn.
