After the Crisis: The Economics of the P-C Insurance Industry Energy Market Trends and Challenges

This PowerPoint report, presented by Robert Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute, notes that the ongoing weak U.S. economic recovery will impact insurance and energy markets alike. The presentation outlines reasons for optimism in the property/casualty (P/C) insurance industry, such as the fact that global (re)insurance has recaptured 100 percent of capital/capacity that had eroded away during the financial crisis, as well as causes for concern. The report discusses demand drivers for energy and energy insurance and offers a look at the energy and energy insurance markets beyond the crisis. It also focuses on energy consumption, capacity and carbon emissions, and the insurance implications of long-term investment in the global energy sector. A P/C insurance industry financial overview and outlook is provided. The report concludes with a discussion of the energy and insurance implications of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
