BMI View: Belgium's insurance market is mature, with high rates of penetration and density in both the lifeand non-life sector. As a well-developed market where levels of coverage are high, growth is expected to beslow and reliant primarily upon wider economic growth in the country and improvements in householdincome and private consumption rates. Despite the expected slow growth in premiums, Belgium's openregulatory environment does create an attractive investment environment, and in future we could see someconsolidation among the smaller domestic providers which may struggle to keep up with enhancedcapitalisation requirements under the Solvency II system, creating opportunities for overseas investors toenter the market via local mergers and acquisitions.Key Updates And Forecasts:

- We hold a relatively subdued outlook for economic growth in Belgium, having recently revised down ourreal GDP forecasts to 1.4% in both 2016 and 2017, from forecasts of 1.6% for both years previously. Thisdowngrade was mainly due to the impacts of increased security measures and a slight softening of EUdemand, and slower growth will likely impact upon demand in both the life and non-life sectors.

- Life insurance is the slightly larger sector in the Belgian market, accounting for 58% of premiums writtenin 2016. As Belgian life insurance is a mature market, premiums are expected to grow relatively slowlyover the coming years, increasing by an annual average of 2.2% in local currency terms between 2016and 2020.
