china is now the worlds 3rd largest insurance market

"chinese insurance market : the biggest top 5 players that control the market"

China's insurance market became the third largest in the world last year, driven by five years of growth, the country's main insurance regulator has reported.Total insurance assets in China grew from five trillion yuan ($767 billion) in 2010 to 12 trillion yuan ($1.83 trillion) in 2015, according to figures from the China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) which were reported by state-owned news agency Xinhua.

However The Bigger Opportunity is yet to on fold The Chinese insurance market has grown at a furious pace in recent years. Between 2000 and 2014, the industry grew about 1,200% in size as measured by written premiums.It is estimated that China’s urbanization rate will increase from 47 percent in 2010 to 59 percent by 2020, meaning 208 million people are expected to move into cities over the period.Among this demographic many would consider purchasing their first insurance products as they move into cities,Another big opportunity is the lack of adequte sum assured among Chinese consumers.Chinese consumers do not have adequate life insurance coverage; China’s sum assured per GDP, which is a measure of insurance coverage, was 33 percent in 2010, only slightly higher than Indonesia’s 28 percent and significantly below India’s 58 percent, not to mention 100 percent and above in many mature markets opening a new customer segment for insurers.

In 2016, the chinese market for insurance is growing by the fastest it has since 2008, with a 43.6% year-over-year rise in gross written premiums at the end of Q3 and a 54.2% growth in monetary value (source: China Insurance Regulatory Commission ("CIRC")). The insurance markets in China’s coastal regions rose the fastest over the past three decades. The top 10 provinces and municipalities in China by P&C insurance premium volume are located mostly in coastal regions such as Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shandong, Shanghai, and Zhejiang 

For the life insurance business, overall accounted for 80% of total premium income in the life market in recent two years  .In the non-life sector, motor insurance has dominated the Chinese non-life market with premium income accounting for more than 70% total premium income. Commercial property insurance, agriculture insurance and liability insurance are the next three most significant product lines .

what are the average bank home loan interest rates in 52 us states

U.S. mortgage rates again made a post-election surge, according to Freddie Mac.Long-term U.S. interest rates have climbed since Trump was elected Nov. 8. That is largely because bond investors believe the president-elect's plan to cut taxes and spend massively on roads, bridges, airports and other infrastructure could ignite inflation. When they foresee rising inflation, investors demand higher long-term rates and pay lower prices for bonds. According to Mortgage giant Freddie Mac Wednesday  saw the average rate on a 30-year fixed rate loan shot up to 4.03%, the highest since July 2015 and up from 3.94% a week earlier. 

The rate on 15-year home loans climbed to 3.25%, up from 3.14% last week and highest since January.A measure of U.S. mortgage application activity fell last week to its lowest level since early January as 30-year mortgage rates rose to their highest since July 2015, data from the Mortgage Bankers Association showed on Wednesday.

 Since Donald Trump’s surprise victory, average rates for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage have leapt by more than half a point, to 4.18% on Wednesday. Rates still remain low by historical standards, but are now at their highest level since June 2015, according to
The 30-year fixed mortgage averaged 4.03 percent for the week ending Nov. 23, up from 3.94 percent the previous week.In a short week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, the 10-year Treasury yield rose 8 basis points,” said Sean Becketti, chief economist at Freddie Mac. “The 30-year mortgage rate followed suit, rising 9 basis points to 4.03 percent. This increase marks the first week since 2015 that mortgage rates have risen above 4 percent.”

General Insurance in India growing at a CAGR of 22%, with profitability taking a beating

the state of  General  insurance industry in India

Overall,  while Indian  General Insurance  industry achieved significant growth over the past 5 years, the profitability of industry deteriorated sharply A multitude of factors adversely impacted the industry profitability over the last five years which are
  1. Price de-tariffication provided freedom to general insurance companies to decide the premium rates in most of the product segments  .
  2. Proliferation of new  companies who have  entered the general insurance business has led into a demand supply constraints with intensifying competition and focus on growth by the new entrants leading  to competitive pricing pressure
  3. Awareness on Insurance Buying: In India both insurance premiums and insurance density( premiums paid vs population ) is lower than developing or  comparable developed nations 
This is where the web can play a huge role ..Online Insurance buying can completely cut off the commissions  thereby eliminating the costs incurred as a " distributors fee" With  Indian demograhics getting  more attractive  coupled with  greater web connectivity and better broadband broadband connectivity  speeds , More of Indian Consumer would be gravitating towards buying an Insurance policy online .
