Commercial-Insurance Premium Growth Nearly Three Times Higher in Emerging Markets

Commercial insurance premium growth was nearly three times higher in emerging markets compared to advanced markets from 2000-2010, and insurers are expected to seek more growth opportunities in these regions as economic growth slows in advanced markets, a new report says. 

In its latest sigma study, titled “Insuring Ever-Evolving Commercial Risks,” Swiss Re says average annual premiums in emerging markets grew by 14 percent from 2000-2010, compared to 5.4 percent annual growth during that period in advanced markets.
