BMI View:

Mauritius is home to one of the best-developed life insurance markets in Africa. Nevertheless,premiums should continue to grow by around 5-6% annually over the forecast period. The main drivers willbe the general growth in the economy, rising household incomes and innovation on the part of the lifeinsurers. The smaller non-life segment should grow more rapidly, thanks to a rapid expansion in the health& personal accident insurance sub-sector.

Key Updates And Forecasts

- Mauritius is embarking on a number of ambitious infrastructure projects, including the development ofeight 'smart cities', which should stimulate growth in the non-life insurance sector, though, as it is amature market, domestic insurers may be more focused upon opportunities in overseas markets.

- This quarter we are maintaining our forecasts for the life segment, where premiums should achieve soldgrowth, both this year and through the forecast period.

- Recent results from the leading insurers have caused us to lift our forecasts for the health & personalaccident sub-sector of the non-life segment. Whereas we had previously forecast annual growth of about10%, we are now anticipating an annual expansion of about 12%. As a consequence, we are forecastingfaster growth in non-life premiums than in Q316.
