Premium is the amount paid by the insured to the insurer(s) for the insurance. It is the cost of the insurance policy.

Capacity refers to the largest amount of insurance that a company or the market is able to write on a given risk. Capacity affects the availability and price (premium) of insurance. In general, as capacity increases the insured is able to obtain a better price (lower premium) and/or otherwise better terms such as better payment terms etc. as competition is increased.
