Life Reinsurance Market Outlook - 2027

Globally, the life reinsurance market is experiencing moderate growth, and is expected to expand in the future. Generally, reinsurance is widely used by life and health insurers to monitor their performance, liability, and resources and to access benefits provided by reinsurers in the market. It helps insurance firms to stay solvent by collecting premiums paid to beneficiary and eliminates net liability for particular damages from severe casualties. With reinsurance, insurers can under-write policies that cover a larger amount or intensity of risk without increasing organizational costs to cover their solvency margins.

COVID-19 Scenario analysis:

  • COVID-19 impact has resulted in business disruption and significant losses to both insurers and re-insurers. 
  • Several insurance providers included all the pandemic-related losses in their existing re-insurance coverage plans. 
  • For instance, Willis Re stated that the rate of reinsurance increased with nearly 50% in the month of April, with the highest risk-adjusted rate hikes occurring in the loss-hit disaster re-insurance programs.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis:

Rise in claims in the life-insurance sector, growth in focus on insurers to stabilize losses by limiting risks, and expansion of insuring capacity are some of key factors that drive the life reinsurance market growth. However, increase in competition from regional players and geographical locations restrict new entrants to enter the market.

However, rise in life-insurance coverage rate and untapped demand in emerging countries is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market.

The global life-reinsurance market trends are as follows:

Technological advancements to perform efficiently:

Automated technology is shaping the life-reinsurance industry’s ways of policy writing. Relationships between consumers and insurers can be improved with the adoption of direct to customer (D2C) frameworks which help insurers as well as re-insurers. With a version known as Magnum, a market major Swiss Re has developed a direct to customer automated underwriting system, which enables insurers to streamline their underwriting capabilities. Such system helps insurers to avail and utilize large volumes of customer data, resulting in reinsurers fine-tune the accuracy of risk profiling. More number of such advancements are expected to transform the life reinsurance industry.

Rise in re-insurance premium rates limit risk:

With an increased rate of claims in the life insurance category, re-insurers have suffered serious losses in the market. Hence, to tackle with these risks, life reinsurers have come up with a revision of solutions to overcome mounting losses. Many life reinsurers have reported increase in premium rates in recent years, owing to higher life-insurance claims. By keeping the price of premiums high, reinsurance firms can cope with risk and perform better. This move is likely to push insurance companies to raise insurance premiums as they find pressure from life reinsurers. Subsequently, the price burden is shifted to end-user insurance customers.
