BMI View:

Bulgaria's insurance market is among the least developed of the EU states we monitor and isalso less mature than most other markets in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region. Low householdincomes and discretionary spending have constrained the growth of the sector, resulting in the dominanceof compulsory lines such as motor vehicle insurance in place of life insurance and other discretionary lines.While a favourable economic climate and rising household incomes should support growth in both the lifeand non-life sectors over, the expansion is likely to be at a moderate pace. Likewise, multinationals willcontinue to gradually increase their exposure to the market through the introduction of new product lines,as well as through the acquisition of smaller indigenous firms.

Key Updates & Forecasts

- In August 2016, results from stress tests conducted on Bulgaria's banking system showed the country'sbanks to have stabilised since the 2014 banking crisis, and are no longer in need of state support. Theoutcome has led us to improve our forecasts for credit/financial guarantee premiums and will also help tosupport growth in other lines.

- Our core outlook for the wider non-life insurance market remains in place, which is for premiums growthto turn positive from 2017 in local and USD terms following a decline of 1.4% and 5.1% respectively in2016. Premiums will grow by 6.2% a year in US dollar terms over 2017-2020 to reach USD1.1bn,equivalent to an annual increase of 3.2% in local currency terms.

- In the life insurance market we forecast growth of 0.3% in local currency terms in 2016, Translating to afall of 3.5% in USD terms to USD215mn. By 2020 premiums will have grown to reach USD278mn(BGN455mn).
