Trade Credit Insurance in France

Press Release   •   Jun 18, 2013 12:14 IST

In addition to documenting the development of the market value from 2008 to 2012, the report also divides it for the most recent year between four key segments: between small companies with an annual turnover of less than EUR 5 million and larger companies with a turnover above this threshold; between single-risk and annual policies; between export and domestic trade credit insurance; and between protection acquired for political risks and cover bought for business risks.
 These unique market splits are based in part on a survey of leading brokers of trade credit insurance in France. This same survey also identifies the underwriters of this type of cover used by brokers on a regular basis, gives an input into Finaccord's estimates for the market shares of underwriters and brokers of trade credit insurance in France, provides a basis for commentary surrounding distribution channels used for this type of policy, and informs Finaccord's forecasts for the French market value through to 2016.
 Key features of this report include:
 - quantification of the market size for trade credit insurance in France: how much is the market worth, how has it developed since 2008 and how does it break down into key segments?
 - presentation of the actual or estimated market shares of both brokers and underwriters of trade credit insurance in 2012 based on both the broker survey and other available data sources;
 - audit of the frequency of usage of underwriters by major brokers of trade credit insurance in France: to what extent are competitors effectively challenging the main incumbent underwriters?
 - availability of an accompanying PartnerBASE™ dataset that logs partnerships for trade credit insurance identified by Finaccord across a combined total of 40 leading banks and major trade associations;
 - forecasts for the market for trade credit insurance in France and how it will split between domestic and export trade credit cover: what is this sector likely to look like in 2016?
