Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Life Insurance in the Czech Republic, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018" report to their offering.

In terms of gross written premium, the Czech Republic has the second-largest life insurance segment in the Central and Eastern European region, after Poland. The country's economy remained under pressure during the review period (2009-2013), as a result of the global, financial and eurozone debt crises, although there is suggested to be much stability taking place in the economy over the forecast period (2013-2018).

During the review period, the Czech life insurance segment grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1%. The country's GDP, at current prices, declined at a CAGR of -3.3% during the review period, resulting in an increase in the penetration of life insurance, from 1.42% in 2009 to 1.59% in 2013.

The Czech insurance industry is expected to grow over the forecast period (2013-2018), in the presence of factors such as product innovation by insurers and consumer demand towards individual whole life insurance. Individual whole life products are expected to lead the industry's growth over the forecast period, and the pension reform is expected to spur the demand in life segment.
