Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/04/2014 -- The Polish non-life insurance segment performed better as compared to the life insurance segment which declined at a CAGR of -1.9% during the review period, and continued to expand even during the global financial crisis in 2009. The written premium of the non-life segment increased from PLN18.1 billion (US$7.5 billion) in 2008 to PLN23.4 billion (US$7.2 billion) in 2012, at a review-period CAGR of 6.6%. The growth in the segment was partly due to improved demand for property insurance, and the high frequency of natural disasters. The increase in insurance premium rates due to the severe flooding and forest fires in 2010, coupled with mandatory motor third-party liability insurance, supported the growth during the review period (2008-2012). These factors, coupled with projected economic growth, are also expected to support the segment over the forecast period, during which the written premium of the non-life insurance segment is expected to increase from PLN23.4 billion (US$7.2 billion) in 2012 to PLN31.6 billion (US$10.7 billion) in 2017, at a projected CAGR of 6.2%. The segment is also expected to benefit from increasing levels of risk awareness among Polish consumers.
