BMI View: The increasingly negative domestic economic outlook will impact upon the Japanese insurance sector in 2015, with the weakening of the yen resulting in a contraction in premiums in US dollar terms in both the life and non-life sector. Throughout the remainder of our forecast period to 2019, we expect to see only limited single digit growth in premiums, and some sub-sectors may record an overall decrease as demand falls. The overall insurance market remains robust however, and will continue to be one of the largest insurance markets in the world.

In 2015 we expect to see an overall decrease in premiums of around 7.7% in US dollar terms, with the bulk of the contraction attributed to a decline in Japan's non-life insurance sector. In local currency terms the outlook is more positive, with growth of 6.6% expected - however the bulk of this growth will be driven by Japan's substantial life insurance sector while non-life will show little expansion. Non-life's dominating motor vehicle insurance line is struggling to find scope for growth, hampered by Japan's subdued autos market and intense pricing competition which is limiting premium growth. Overall gross life and non-life premiums are expected to reach USD376.9bn in 2015, meaning Japan remains an enormous market, despite the limited growth prospects in the short term.
