Research and Markets: Non-Life Insurance in Portugal, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017

Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Non-Life Insurance in Portugal, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017" report to their offering.

Portugal's recessionary economic environment and ongoing austerity measures adopted by the government have created difficult operating conditions for the insurance business in Portugal. The gross written premium of the non-life segment declined at a CAGR of 4.1%, from EUR2.7 billion (US$3.9 billion) in 2008 to EUR2.3 billion (US$2.9 billion) in 2012. Reduction in construction and housing activity, plus declining automobile sales put pressure on the demand for property and motor insurance. Motor insurance accounted for 59.5% of the non-life segment's gross written premium, followed by property insurance with 34.0% in 2012. Compulsory insurance products such as motor third-party liability, workmen's compensation and liability insurance will lead to growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, an expected economic revival and subsequent increase in business activity will provide further impetus for growth in the non-life segment.
