The insurance industry was driven by economic growth in Mexico, Indonesia, Kenya, Turkey and Vietnam during the review period. In 2009, the Mexican economy recorded a 19.3% decline in GDP at current prices due to the global financial crisis, affecting exports and foreign direct investment (FDI).
Despite this, the insurance industry expanded significantly from US$19.5 billion in 2010 to US$29.5 billion in 2014 in terms of gross written premium, at a review-period CAGR of 10.84%.
This growth was partly due to the robust regulatory environment and favorable demographic dividends, including the rising middle-class population. At the same time, real GDP in Indonesia grew at an average of 6% during the review period, as a result of rapid growth in the industrial and service sectors.
The 2012 euro debt crisis affected Turkey, although the country performed better than other European economies, and real GDP grew at a review-period average of 5.4%. A major challenge for insurers in the peer group has been maintaining steady growth in gross written premium and profitability. The industry is still developing, and requires more investment in operational and sales infrastructure, raising risks of delays in returns on investment (ROI). Low consumer awareness in the peer group adds to the industry’s challenges.

As urbanization gradually brings economic development, it also creates opportunities for insurers. The urban population in Kenya, Vietnam, Indonesia, Turkey and Mexico grew at 19%, 12.9%, 11.5%, 8.4% and 6.4% respectively, between 2010 and 2014. Rises in employment opportunities and disposable incomes create demand for savings and life insurance products, as well as for non-life products. Rises in demand for residential and commercial property, personal and commercial vehicles, and public transport create demand in their respective insurance categories.
Urbanization tends to be led by investment in infrastructure, and the construction of large infrastructure projects required insurance to manage the risks for the governments, companies, workers and investors involved. This creates demand for property, liability and casualty insurance. Most growth in urban populations is expected in emerging economies. Economic growth has fueled urbanization in the peer group countries, where most of the population resides in urban areas, with the exception of Vietnam. The urban populations are expected to grow over the forecast period, driving demand for products in all insurance lines.
Most populations in the high-growth markets of Mexico, Indonesia, Kenya, Turkey and Vietnam are in the working age group (15–64 years). As populations rose, the proportions of the working-age populations in each country increased during 2010–2013. The working-age population proportions in Mexico, Indonesia, Kenya, Turkey and Vietnam stood at 65.9%, 55.1%, 65.1%, 67% and 70.7% respectively in 2014. This provides significant potential for insurance products in all segments, which is expected to continue over the forecast period. Employment has also improved, supported by sound economic growth. A key consequence of this has been an increase in annual disposable incomes and net family incomes, which has increased demand for insurance.
As emerging economies, the insurance industries in Indonesia, Turkey, Kenya and Vietnam are still developing. Skilled personnel and underwriting specialists are scarce, especially in Kenya and Vietnam, which may discourage large investment by foreign insurers. Much of the populations in these markets reside in areas with poor road and communications infrastructure, making it difficult for insurers to access markets and distribute products. Setting up new distribution channels creates challenges in terms of time and resources.
