Strategic Market Intelligence: General Insurance in Hong Kong - Key trends and Opportunities to 2022

Summary
The general insurance business accounts for just 9% of the Hong Kong’s total insurance industry by GWP.The trend over the review period (2013-2017) showed that the share has been declining, as in 2013 it was 13%.

As of the end of 2017, the total general insurance business was valued at HKD45.4 billion (US$5.8 billion). During the review period, the market size grew at a CAGR of 3.8%; it is projected to reach a size of HKD56.8 billion (US$7.7 billion) by 2022.

Personal Accident and Health (PA&H) insurance has the highest share of the business, accounting for a 33% share of GWP.It is followed by other lines of business, including Liability (23%) and Property (17%).

Marine, Aviation and Transit (MAT) has grown in importance recently, due to policy emphasis. The government aims to extend support to promote the country’s marine and shipping industry growth.

At an industry level, the combined ratio shows a rise during the review period, going from 89.7% in 2013 to 101.2% in 2017, suggesting a worsening underwriting performance. The PA&H and motor insurance businesses reported higher loss ratios in 2017 than others. Hong Kong’s high cost of healthcare also reflects the cost of private health insurance, which also ranks among the highest in the world. Partly to address this, the government recently introduced a voluntary health insurance scheme.

Agents and brokers have conventionally held the predominant share in distribution.However, this is gradually giving way to technology-led channels.

Importantly, there is an active government and regulatory push towards direct channels, based on internet and mobile-based technologies.
