Furthermore, poor state provision of both medical and retirement benefits mean that households that can afford individual cover and savings products are highly inclined to do so. However, the non-life segment will also expand over this period - albeit at a smaller pace - on the back of steady growth in auto sales as well as the rollout of universal health coverage.

Additionally, while the retention ratio of Indonesia's insurance sector is at 69.0% currently, we expect it to remain roughly constant over the coming years as the life sector, which accounts for 75.0% of the sector, remains generally well-capitalised and will therefore have stable reinsurance needs over the coming years.
