    17 August 2016

  • Liability insurance in Asia (PDF, 656kb)

    22 September 2015

    The liability insurance market in Asia is currently small, but is expected to offer significant growth opportunities in the coming years. In 2014, around 8% of global liability premiums, or about USD 12 billion, came out of Asia. The market has been
    growing rapidly: between 2007 and 2014, liability premiums in Asia grew by 10% per annum, compared with average global growth of just 1%. Liability premium growth is expected to average 8% annually between 2015 and 2020, compared with 6% growth globally. Liability penetration in Asia is low at 0.05% of gross domestic product (GDP) compared to 0.2% globally. The main reasons for low take-up are lack of product awareness, lax regulation and the not-so litigious culture in the region.
