This report differs from its predecessors in several respects. In our analysis of competitive conditions, we provide a much more comprehensive ranking of insurance companies in the major segments from the point of view of the organisation that is providing the data (in practice almost always the national insurance regulator or the national insurance trade association). In Poland, for instance, the three largest non-life companies in the first half of 2009 – in terms of Gross Written Premiums written - were PZU SA, STU ERGO Hestia SA and TUiR WARTA SA, whose market shares were 38.9%, 10.0% and 9.4% respectively. In the life segment, the leaders in the first half of 2009 were PZU Życie SA, ING TUnŻ SA and TUnŻ WARTA SA, whose market shares were 28.1%, 11.1% and 9.4% respectively.

In Poland, for instance, the largest non-life lines in 2008 were compulsory motor third party liability (CMTPL), land vehicles voluntary insurance (CASCO) and fire and diverse risks. These accounted for 35%, 26% and 10%, respectively, of total non-life premiums. Over time, we should be able to use this information to bring greater sophistication to our forecasting process.
