In terms of gross written premium, German non-life insurance is one of the leading segments of its kind in Europe. Compulsory insurance aided rapid segment growth during 2001–2011. However, due to the impact of the global financial crisis, the segment’s growth bordered on stagnant during 2008–2010. The non-life segment is highly fragmented, with more than 200 insurers supplying a variety of products, and the top 10 companies accounting for 46.2% of the segment’s total written premium in 2012. The non-life segment recorded the strongest annual growth during the review period, reaching 5.1% in 2012. This was also the highest growth rate in the non-life segment since 2003, due to the 6.1% growth in motor cover in 2012. Non-life insurers are increasingly focusing on underwriting profitability, as low interest rates continue to suppress investment income.
The UK personal accident and health insurance segment registered as the fastest growing in the industry, with a review-period (2009–2013) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8%, despite low individual investments and consumer confidence levels as a result of the financial and debt crisis. The segment accounted for 3.4% of the total gross written premiums in 2013. Growth was partly attributed to an increase in outbound travel, rising healthcare expenditure, economic improvements and perceived inadequacies in the government-funded universal healthcare scheme, and growing awareness of the benefits of personal accident and health insurance. These factors, coupled with the rise in per capita annual disposable income and the aging population, are expected to support the segment over the forecast period (2013–2018). As such, the segment’s gross written premium is projected to increase at a forecast-period CAGR of 2.3%.
