The next five years will allow the Workers' Compensation and Other Insurance Funds industry to recover. This recovery will be fueled by an expected decrease in work-related deaths, which should help boost profitability because deaths result in large payouts; a falling unemployment rate, which will help stabilize premiums; an expected increase in the yield on 10-year Treasury notes; and a stronger expected stock market, which will boost investment income.
This industry comprises legal entities (i.e. funds), except pensions and health and welfare-related employee benefit funds, organized to provide insurance exclusively for the fund's sponsor, firm or its employees or members.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
