Global Life & Health Insurance Carriers

The Global Life and Health Insurance Carriers industry protects people from the immediate and long-term costs arising from illness, injury, death and longevity. Life and Health (L&H) insurers' exposure to financial markets through underwriting and investing caused significant revenue volatility during the recession. However, industry revenue is expected to increase marginally through 2013 and continue increasing over the next five years.

Insurers in this industry directly underwrite insurance policies relating to life, health, accident and medical risks. Underwriting insurance policies involves assuming risks and assigning premiums. Life and health insurers generate revenue not only through the specific activity of insurance underwriting but also by investing premiums and annuity contracts. The industry excludes social health insurance programs that are established and funded by governments.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
