Published: Fri Sep 06 2013


The UK is the seventh-largest economy in the world. The global financial and eurozone debt crises led to a decline in the country's economic growth, which impacted the demand for insurance products. The UK insurance industry, the third-largest globally, decreased at a CAGR of -2.1% during the review period (2008-2012). Growing vehicles sales, and increased construction and travel activities related to the Olympic Games in London 2012 supported the growth of the non-life insurance segment. Sustained demand for compulsory insurance products such as motor insurance also added to the growth. The country's non-life segment increased at a CAGR of 3.6% during the review period. Over the forecast period (2012-2017), stable economic growth, increasing vehicle sales and improvement in the property market will drive growth. However, increasing competition and rising claims rates, along with delays in the implementation of Solvency II, remain key challenges facing the segment.
