New Market Report Lithuania Insurance Report Q3 2015

(MENAFN Editorial)

Lithuania's insurance market is showing the benefits of increasing consumer sophistication as the economy develops as a whole. However it is constrained by its modest size in premium income terms and low income per capita making many non compulsory product lines unaffordable. The country's adoption of the Euro may improve sales in the life sector savings products as bank interest rates on deposits are negligible.

The life insurance segment remains very under-developed by most metrics. However we still look for (low) single digit growth in life premiums through the forecast period. In the non-life segment (which is also under-developed) the main challenge is price competition but should also result in modest premium growth. In spite of consolidation in the market of which Gjensidige Forsikring ASA's acquisition of PZU Lietuva from PZU SA is the latest example underwriters will find it hard to increase rates.

The strengths of Lithuania's insurance sector are those of the multi-national companies that dominate it. These strengths in no particular order include: access to capital; strong brands; ability to innovate and to develop attractive new products; multi-channel distribution; and access to economies of scale that come from pan-European geographic footprints. Adoption of the EUR with effect from January 1 2015 will reinforce the stability of the economy and the financial system.

Total premiums across the sector as a whole are equivalent to about 1.5% of GDP or around USD280 per capita at the end of the forecast period. The life segment accounts for just under one third of all activity; the non-life segment for a little over two-thirds. Life insurance products remain unaffordable for many households. In this respect Lithuania is similar to a number of the poorer countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Low household incomes are the fundamental reason why we expect only pedestrian growth in premiums through the forecast period.
