- The rapid emergence of the Asia-Pacific market, and particularly of the Chinese market, has largely contributed to the growth of the global market in recent years. This contribution becomes more apparent from the fact that developed markets such as the European and the US have grown below the global average since demand is constrained by high penetration of insurance products. Additionally, the low interest environment, especially in Europe, has reduced the investment income of insurers, limiting the underwriting capacity of insurers and their price flexibility on premiums. Most importantly, the life insurance segment was hurt most by this relaxed monetary policy as the reduced returns of these products have induced lower guarantees that are less attractive for consumers.
