The insurance reports of EMIS Insights cover the life and non-life insurance sectors, including the dynamics of the ratio between the two and the penetration of non-obligatory insurance products. The life insurance is still quite unpopular in emerging markets, so the opportunities for growth are being analysed. The non-life insurances include motor, property, healthcare and professional policies. The main indicators include premium income, number of contracts and payment of claims. Government policy on introducing or lifting mandatory insurances is also part of the report.
Each report contains in-depth analysis of the sector’s importance for the country’s economy, detailed statistics and infographics. The report includes executive summary, sector and subsector overviews, competitive and regulatory environment, as well as thorough company profiles of the top market players.
