Research and Markets: The Insurance Industry in Sweden, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016

Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The Insurance Industry in Sweden, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2016" report to their offering.

The Swedish insurance industry grew at a CAGR of 4.2% during the review period, primarily supported by the life insurance segment.

The Swedish insurance industry is highly competitive, and has one of the highest densities in the European region. However, Sweden's insurance penetration as a percentage of GDP was lower than that of the UK and France in 2011. Domestic insurance companies dominate Swedish insurance, with a few large companies and groups accounting for most of the industry. A small share of the industry is distributed among a large number of smaller insurers. The Swedish insurance industry experienced a period of uncertainty with the economic slowdown in 2008. However, it was considered an attractive insurance market prior to this.

Despite the uncertain economic conditions in the EU, insurance companies are showing an interest in investing in the Swedish insurance industry in 2012, led by the development of the Swedish economy and the propensity of the Swedish population to invest in insurance.
