South Korea Reinsurance Market Examined & Forecast by Timetric in In-demand Report Published at

08 Nov 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – During 2008-2012, the reinsurance industry in South Korea registered an 8.2% CAGR and grew from USD 5.1 billion in 2008 to more than USD 7.69 billion in 2012. The domestic reinsurance category did not experience any considerable losses over the examined period due to the absence of huge natural disasters in the country. This encouraged South Korea’s direct insurers to retain most of their written premiums, which lead to fiercer competition in the domestic reinsurance sector. Thus, the reinsurance industry in South Korea did not record strong increase in premium rates if compared to other developed nations, such as the US and Japan. In 2012, treaty reinsurance was the dominant segment in the domestic reinsurance market, accounting for an 85.7% market share. The further growth of the South Korean reinsurance market is likely to be mainly spurred by the technical skills and financial resources offered by foreign reinsurers.

Korean Reinsurance Company, Munich Reinsurance Company and Swiss Reinsurance Company are the key participants in the national reinsurance market.
