Singapore Property & Casualty Insurance Market Analysis

The Singapore Property and Casualty Insurance Market has generated a revenue of over USD 780 million in the current year and is anticipated to register a CAGR of more than 5% for the forecast period and reach USD 1045 million in 2028.

The Singapore property insurance sector remains profitable due to disciplined underwriting, adequate reinsurance coverage, and growing premiums from compulsory fire insurance. The primary growth driver is mandatory fire insurance, which has become a requirement when purchasing homes from the Housing and Development Board (HDB) as well as taking out home loans. According to the HDB, more than three-quarters of Singapore residents live in flats sold by the board.

The property and casualty insurance industry in Singapore has weathered the global financial crisis well. While the global financial crisis in the past had some impact on solvency positions of both the life and non-life insurance sectors, the introduction of risk-sensitive solvency requirements, early warning systems, and intensive risk-based supervision enabled the insurance sector to weather the crisis relatively well.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has made significant progress in improving the insurance regulatory regime and supervisory practice since the initial Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP). The updated regulatory framework and supervisory practices have a significantly high level of observance of the Insurance Core Principles (ICPs).

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a flat growth rate for the sector. The gross premium for the sector was marginally decreased by 0.2% for the period. The Property and Casualty sector started to show improvement as measures and COVID-related restrictions were eased. With the key economic and social activities regained, the property and casualty sector has achieved a stable growth of an 8% increase in annual gross premiums.

Singapore Property & Casualty Insurance Market Trends

Motor Insurance Dominates the Property and Casualty Insurance of Singapore

Motor Insurance contributes more than one-fourth of the gross premium written for general insurance in the country. In the previous year, the vehicle insurance segment grew at a steady pace, with a 2.7 percent raise over the previous year. As additional operations restarted with the easing of the lockdown, the segment's total claims paid out increased by 8.3%, and the number of fatal accidents increased by One-Fourth. Road traffic incidents have also increased the number of injuries. As Singapore moves closer to an endemic new normal, motor claims are projected to rise in the coming year.

Various Insurance Companies started working closely with key partners and stakeholders like the Singapore Road Safety Council and Traffic Police on the way to improving education and awareness for road users in Singapore. Sales of motor vehicles have improved post covid, reflecting the improvement in customer demand, which is expected to support the growth in motor insurers' premiums in the short term. The total of insurance companies has been increasing, especially in the last two years, with confined and direct insurers leading the industry.
