In 1980, the annual sale of vehicles was recorded at 97,262 units and this has since increased to 627,753 units in 2012, registering a CAGR of 6.0% for the said period. • The Government intends to liberalise the motor insurance industry by 2016, by allowing general insurance companies to vary the premium based on the risk profile of individual vehicle owners. The revision in motor tariff premium rates was part of the New Motor Cover Framework that is aimed at addressing the structural issues within the motor insurance sector to ensure continuous and sustainable motor protection to users. The New Motor Cover Framework will pave the way towards the Government’s policy of de-tariffing the motor insurance premium by 2016. Moving forward, this will allow general insurance company to vary the premium rates based on the risk profile of individual vehicles owners. • The Medical and PA insurance is expected to grow with a CAGR of 13.6% from 2013E to 2018F. The double digit growth is largely influenced by the increase in outbound travellers in Malaysia as well as the requirement under the Hospitalisation and Surgical Scheme for Foreign Workers (SPIKPA).

The strengthening of the Malaysian currency, the introduction of tourism initiatives such as the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair, availability of affordable / budget airlines and the ease of purchasing flight and travel packages via the Internet are among key contributors towards this trend of increasing outbound travel activities.
