Research and Markets: Insight Report: Nascent Insurance Markets and Opportunities for Foreign Insurers 2014-2023
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3bjxrc/insight_report)
has announced the addition of the "Insight
Report: Nascent Insurance Markets and Opportunities for Foreign Insurers"
report to their offering.
Insurance markets in developed countries are mature, with limited scope
for growth. Insurers operating in these markets are therefore looking to
new regions to expand and diversify. A nascent insurance market is one
that is small and newly developing, and those that have been opened for
foreign investment offer significant opportunities to foreign insurers.
Myanmar - Asia's final frontier economy
Myanmar, described as the last frontier economy of Asia, began the
conversion to a free market economy when its first elected democratic
government came to power in March 2011. The new government ended decades
of military junta rule nd isolation from the rest of the world. As a
part of economic liberalization and economic reforms, the new government
opened its insurance industry to private insurers in 2012 and is
expected to open the market to foreign insurers in 2015. In 2012, the
government authorized 12 domestic insurers to establish insurance
businesses in the country. These insurers will complete their first year
of operation in 2014.
The untapped insurance industry of Cuba
The insurance industry in Cuba was opened for private participation and
foreign investment in 1997 under free-market economic reforms initiated
by Fidel Castro's then-communist government. However, with the high
level of political risk, the Cuban insurance industry is yet to be
explored by foreign insurers. Only state-owned bodies such as Esicuba
SA, Esen, Asistur SA and Heath Lambert de Cuba SA operate in the country.
Beginning of a new life insurance market in Cambodia
Cambodia ended decades of economic isolation in 2000, when it made the
transition to a free market economy. This followed bold economic reforms
and economic liberalization, which triggered rapid growth over the next
decade. The non-life insurance segment was formally established in the
country in 2003 with the entry of private insurers. It grew rapidly
during its initial phase of development and generated premiums of
US$35.6 million in 2012. The Cambodian insurance industry has
substantial potential for growth and is expected to continue to grow
over the next decade to become a US$200.0 million industry by 2023. As
of May 2014, six non-life insurers operated in the segment.
