Key Findings
The value of the life insurance market is shown in terms of gross premium incomes from mortality protection and retirement savings plans. All currency conversions have been calculated using constant 2015 annual average exchange rates. The insurance market depends on a variety of economic and non-economic factors and future performance is difficult to predict. The forecast given in this report is not based on a complex economic model, but is intended as a rough guide to the direction in which the market is likely to move.

The Japanese life insurance market had total gross written premiums of $360.5bn in 2015, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.3% between 2011 and 2015.

The life insurance segment was the market's most lucrative in 2015, with total gross written premiums of $323.8bn, equivalent to 89.8% of the market's overall value.

Japan has had a consumption problem for a long time and they were one of the first central banks to trial negative interest rates in a bid to force spending. This impacts the life insurance market because the returns are less. While a consistently ageing population will probably do more in terms of volume demand, the country does not appear to have an economic miracle on its horizon.
