Insurance in China – additional information

The Chinese insurance industry almost disappeared between 1949 and 1976 during Mao Zudong's reign, but has rapidly expanded since China reopened its doors to the outside world in 1978. It has grown especially fast since the late 1990s and is now home to the two largest insurance brands in the world, Ping An and China Life. These two companies also featured in the top five global life and health insurance companies by revenue in 2016.

The insurance industry is growing rapidly in China and the number of insurance companies is on the rise. China Life Insurance was the largest life insurance company in China as of 2014 with 53.9 billion U.S. dollars in gross premiums written. In 2015, the total value of insurance premiums in China was 386.5 billion U.S. dollars.

Taking out insurance is more popular in urban areas, as people tend to be wealthier and are thus more likely to have valuable assets which they wish to protect. The number of health insurance premium payers in urban areas of China has been steadily increasing since 2007. In 2017, there were 1.18 billion people paying health insurance premiums in urban China.
