Life/Fraternal, Property/Casualty Reports Now Posted Online

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 6, 2009) - The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) today released two sets of data that help provide an indicator of the degree of market concentration in lines of business and identify leading insurance writers.

The 2008 market share data for life/fraternal and for property/casualty insurers include countrywide direct written premium for the top 25 groups and companies as reported on the State Page of the annual statement for insurers that report to the NAIC.

The property/casualty report contains cumulative market share data for the following lines of business: personal auto, commercial auto, workers'compensation, medical malpractice, homeowners and other liability (excluding auto liability) insurance.

The life/fraternal market share report contains cumulative market share data for the following lines of business: life, annuity considerations, and totals of life insurance, annuity considerations, deposit-type contract funds, other considerations and accident/health insurance.

Both of these reports will be refreshed each Monday through mid-April. These abbreviated reports are available for viewing at no charge on the NAIC Web site

For more in-depth market share information, please refer to the complete 2008 Market Share Reports for Property/Casualty and the 2008 Market Share Reports for Life/Fraternal, which will be made available in summer 2009. The top 125 groups and companies countrywide are shown in each line of business and the top 10 groups and companies are shown by state. These publications can be purchased online via the NAIC Store.
