BMI View :

The outlook for Kenya's insurance market is increasingly positive, with substantial growth reported across a range of life and non-life insurance products in recent months. With healthy economic growth forecast for the next few years and private financial consumption increasingly steadily, we expect to see double digit premium growth throughout the forecast period through to 2018. As the market matures and develops, we expect to see more global players enter the field and a process of market consolidation. There are some significant challenges facing the insurance market in Kenya. Much of the population lives below the poverty line and there is little awareness of, or appetite for, long-term investment or savings products which restricts potential growth in the life sector. The launch of a revised mandatory state pension system in mid-2014 may go some way towards educating the public as to the benefits of pension planning, and as economic growth fuels private financial consumption we expect to see the life insurance market increase over the next few years.
