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

Summary
The accepted total premium for the Hong Kong reinsurance market stood at HKD23.7 billion in 2017, registering a CAGR 14.6% during the review period (2013-2017). This is projected to reach HKD42.1 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.2% during the forecast period (2017-2022). Facultative reinsurance accounts for the predominant share, at 97.5% of the total market size. This has been the case during the review period, showing a rise from the 95.6% share in 2013.

During the review period, the cession rate (share of premiums ceded in GWP) rose for select lines in general insurance, including personal accident and health, marine, aviation and transit, and liability.In case of life insurance, the cession rate shows a declining trend.

However, considering the predominant share of life insurance in overall industry, the absolute value of premiums ceded registered a 7% growth.

The market is a concentrated one in case of general insurance.As of the end of 2017, of the 13 reinsurers which reported results, the top two reinsurers cornered almost 40% of the total business by GWP.

As the regulator has no restriction on foreign ownership, there is a significant presence of foreign reinsurers. With policy initiatives planned for promoting Hong Kong as an insurance hub, a greater role of offshore business could be expected.

In 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut struck Hong Kong, along with others in the region, calculated as being more severe than those in 2017 and before.Insured losses are estimated at US$1 billion or more, mainly in property and business interruption claims.

The case for parametric insurance is becoming stronger, with the recurring pattern and severity of typhoons and similar climate-related events. Swiss Re, for instance, has one such product customized for the occurrence of typhoons.
