The insurance market in the first half of 2017 continued to grow steadily. The total premium income is estimated to have increased by 20.7%, in which non-life premium income has increased by 9%, comparing to last year. However, the steady growth mainly results from the retail sector, whereas several lines with reinsurance business such as engineering, energy, marine cargo and aviation have little increase or even lower profits. For instance, Engineering Insurance in the first half of 2017 is believed to have made no progress. Indeed, most insurance companies did not meet their targets of premium income for Engineering insurance.

In this period, there are some catastrophes that malevolently affected the market: the fire accidents at Vinh Tan 4 Thermal Power Plant (estimated loss of USD 25 millions), Kwong Lung Meko factory (estimated loss of USD 18 millions) and Truong Hai Car Factory (estimated loss of USD 16 millions).

The abundant reinsurance capital of international market, together with the growing potential of non-traditional reinsurance (Deposit, Sidecar, Cat Bond,..) have eventually led to high competition, which resulted in the lowering level of premium.
