The latest data has caused us to revise downwards our projections of life premiums for 2016 and to look for premiums in that segment to basically track sideways for the remainder of the forecast period. For all its strengths, the massive Japanese life segment is a mature market. Many of the majors are looking for growth overseas and/or through domestic acquisitions. We continue to look for steady growth in the much smaller non-life segment. This is mainly because of the favourable trends in the motor vehicle insurance sub-sector. In both major segments, profitable niches remain available to foreign insurance companies.

Key Updates And Forecasts


- The life segment will be supported by: increasing demand for retirement income solutions; the established position of the life insurance industry as a provider of social security in Japan; the low rates of return available from competing investment opportunities; and innovation by life insurers in terms of product design, distribution and brand. Major life companies continue to announce initiatives to expand overseas and/or to undertake acquisitions of other Japanese companies. Overall, though, premiums in this segment should track sideways through the remainder of the forecast period.
