28 Tropical Storms Annually

The Western Pacific Basin is one of the most active basins in the world. It produces an average of 28 tropical storms per year and is known for brewing some of the world’s most intense tropical cyclones.

Recent notable events in the region include Typhoons Goni (2015), Rammsun (2014), Morakot (2009), and Hagupit (2008)—each of which dealt over $1 billion in damage. And then, of course, in 2013 Super Typhoon Haiyan toppled those records to cause over $5 billion in damage alone, making it the worst in recent history to strike the Philippines.

The nations in this space from Japan to Malaysia and everything in between host a great amount of economic growth, but the underlying risk has elevated the profiles for these nations in the global re/insurance industry.
