Best´s Market Segment Report: China Non-Life Insurance Market Outlook Remains Negative

HONG KONG, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- AM Best is maintaining its negative outlook on the China non-life sector, owing to persistent pressure on the motor business, execution risks as the market turns toward a non-motor-focused business model and the industry’s dependence on investment returns to support earnings.

The new Best’s Market Segment Report
, “Market Segment Outlook: China Non-Life Insurance,” also notes that the ongoing U.S.-China trade war inadvertently has lowered consumer and business sentiment on the mainland. For the second quarter of 2019, China reported its weakest quarter-on-quarter GDP growth in decades, registering just 6.2%. Although the U.S. tariffs are notable, the current slowdown of China’s economy in large part is due to domestic pressures, including a decline in the pace of infrastructure investment, a cooling down of construction industry activity and a decrease in industrial output. AM Best expects that China’s economic growth will continue to expand moderately in the coming quarters, with GDP growth remaining in the 6.0-6.5% range.
