Mexico Insurance Market Intelligence: 2011 Edition
Mexico is the second largest insurance market in Latin America after Brazil at the end of 2009. At the end of 2009, both life and non-life insurance segments witnessed a significant rise in premiums. Many segments under non-life insurance sector experienced a real annual increase in direct premiums as compared to 2008 such as fire, earthquake, Liability, Maritime and Transport, Credit, and agricultural. In addition the premiums rose due to multi-annual renewal of the comprehensive insurance policy of Pemex, state Oil Company, held in February 2009. In life segment, both individual and group insurance policies as well as pension insurance witnessed a rise in premiums.

Met Life remained the market leader in life insurance segment whereas AXA Seguros was the leader in the non-life insurance sector.
