MarketResearchReports.Com: Life Insurance in Germany, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

LogoThe German life segment is one of the strongest in Europe, in terms of density and penetration. The German life segment registered a growth of -3.9% due to the impact of the European sovereign debt crisis in 2011. However, the segment recovered in 2013, registering a growth rate of 4.0%. As a result of the difficult economic conditions, German consumers appreciate the features offered by life insurers, such as cover against biometric risks, and old-age guarantees. Biometric risks are those related to death, disability or disease. German consumers have started to invest more in guaranteed-return life insurance products in order to secure their futures. Although low interest rates and volatile capital markets have affected the life segment negatively, it has recorded steady demand. The country’s aging population and rising employment opportunities, driven by the improving European economic environment, are expected to drive the growth of German life segment over the forecast period (2013–2018).

MarketResearchReports.Com: Life Insurance in the UK, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

LogoThe life insurance segment in the UK accounted for 69.3% of the total industry’s gross written premium in 2013 after posting a review-period (2009–2013) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.4%. The slower growth was associated with lower consumer confidence after the global financial and European debt crises, which led to a decline in the segment from 2008 until 2011. However, due to government actions and regulatory changes, the overall life segment increased at a CAGR of 4.0% during 2011–2013. Group life insurance recorded positive growth, although individual life insurance declined due to low levels of confidence in investments, increased regulatory scrutiny by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), and changes in pensions during the review period.

MarketResearchReports.Com: Non-Life Insurance in Germany, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

LogoIn 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.

MarketResearchReports.Com: Personal Accident and Health Insurance in the UK, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

LogoThe 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%.
