Indonesia Insurance Industry – Overview, Trends, Prospects And Swot Analysis

Emerging Markets Direct (EMD) released their latest Indonesia Insurance Industry Report 2H10. The report says that Indonesia insurance industry is a very attractive and largely untapped market. As of 2008, the country was home to more than 210mn people while the number of insured people was 16.48mn, which implied that only less than 10% had life insurance. Seen in this light, foreign insurance companies had entered into joint ventures with local companies due to the low market penetration rate and the policies set by the Indonesia government.

Next to India and China, Indonesia is definitely one of the insurance markets in Asia with huge growth potential. The Indonesia insurance sector consists of a number of players. As of end 2009, there were 283 companies in Indonesia owning insurance business licenses. There were no much changes made to the number of life, non-life, reinsurance, social insurance program and workers social security, and insurance for civil servants and armed forced companies as compared with 2008. There were even no new insurance companies over the past 5 years due to the relatively high minimum equity of IDR100bn set by the government.

Over the past 5 years, total assets and total investments of the insurance industry as a whole have risen, especially for the reinsurance sector which saw the highest growth rate y-o-y of 21.79% for total investments and total assets. Net premium for non-life insurance and reinsurance has been rising since 2006, from IDR 8,147bn to IDR11,810bn in 2008.

Despite the vulnerability of the Indonesia Insurance industry to natural disaster, the overall industry ratio of gross claims to gross premiums was still manageable. It was recorded that the ratio varied from 48% to 61% in 2008. Whats more, a major part of risks covered by local insurers was ceded to offshore reinsurance company. In recent years, the retention ratio (measured by net written premium to gross written premium) was very conservative and ranged from 34% to 54%. Indonesias insurance industry suffered from deficit transaction, in this regard, our analyst thought that consolidation was vital for insurance companies to strengthen their capital base in order to stay competitive.

What are the market trends and outlook of the Indonesia Insurance Industry? How did the issuance of Indonesian Insurance Architecture (Roadmap) affect the industry? How many insurers licenses were revoked as a result of the minimum solvency requirement specified by the Ministry of Finance? What are the prospects of Takaful (Islamic insurance) in Indonesia? What were the requirements set by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) for foreign insurers to enter the Indonesian market?

China Steel Industry – Overview, Trends, Prospects And Swot Analysis

Emerging Markets Direct (EMD) announced the release of their latest China Steel Industry Report 2H10. It states that China ranked number one in crude steel production (reaches 567.8 million metric tons) again in 2009, which is 13.5% higher than previous year and sharing 46.3% of the world’s total.

The report first profiles the China Steel Industry.Driven by China’s economic development, production of steel reached 426.6 million tons as of August 2010, and is expected to reach 640 million tons for the full year. Finished steel products also increased significantly, EMD outlines the growth scenario of finished steel products, out of which heavy rail track material has an impressive growth of 52.8%.

The Chinese industry is highly fragmented with approximately 800 steel mills, majority state-owned in nature. EMD lists out the production by province out of which Hebei province comes first among other Chinese provinces (22% of total China production).

The EMD report then covers market trends and outlook. The Chinese government introduced measures to curb the over-heated property market in August 2010. According to our report, China’s steel consumption is expected to decelerate in 2011. As the no.1 steel importing country, what will be the impact?

With the removal of tax rebates on certain steal products in July, will exports still increase in the coming months? What is the impact of China exports on other ASEAN countries?

What are the prospects of the China steel sector? What is the outlook for steel price? How does the performance differ between Chinese and non-Chinese steel producers?
