Current Industry PE: Investors are more optimistic on the industry, considering it's trading at a PE ratio of 91.4x which is higher than its 3-year average PE of 58.2x. It appears they are confident that earnings will grow faster in the future than they have historically.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Insurance industry have declined 15% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have grown 20% per year. This means that although more sales are being generated, either the cost of doing business or the level of investment back into businesses has increased, which has decreased profits.
