has announced the addition of the "Personal
Accident and Health Insurance in Germany, Key Trends and Opportunities
to 2016" report to their offering.
The main growth drivers for the personal accident and health insurance
segment during the review period (2007-2011) were the country's rising
healthcare expenditure, increasing GDP and the influence of Cyclone Emma
and Hurricane Kyrill. Health insurance accounted for the largest share
of the German personal accident and health insurance segment in 2011.
The German healthcare system includes both public and private healthcare
services. Although there is mandatory health insurance provided by the
German government, the German private health insurance segment
registered 20% more new business in the first half of 2011 than during
the first half of 2010.
- The low penetration rate of personal accident and health insurance in
Germany and the highly fragmented nature of the insurance segment,
provides opportunities for personal accident and health insurance
companies to capitalize on. - The personal accident and health insurance
segment is expected to register a higher growth rate due to the
significant increase in healthcare expenditure over the forecast period.
- The demand for personal accident and health insurance in Germany was
also been positively influenced by the occurrence of natural disasters
in the country, such as Hurricane Kyrill and Cyclone Emma. - The German
personal accident and health insurance segment is highly fragmented. The
leading German personal accident and health insurance companies include
Allianz, AXA, Central DBV and DKV Deutsche.
