US Life Insurance Market Emerging Opportunities, Key Trends, Size, Drivers, Outlook, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape 2018

In terms of gross written premium, life was the third-largest segment in the US insurance industry during the review period (2009?2013), accounting for 27.1% of the industry's gross written premium in 2013. The life segment's gross written premium increased at a CAGR of 2.6% during the review period, largely as a result of recovery in employment levels, which heightened demand for individual whole life products. However, low investment income led to a loss of earnings in categories such as general annuity. According to the Federal Reserve, since 1930 life and annuity insurers have been the largest investors in the US capital market, and consequently are highly exposed to bond financing and real estate investments. As a result, life insurers' investment incomes fell sharply in 2009 due to the collapse of the financial market and the subprime mortgage crisis. Volatility in the stock market reduced demand for annuity products.
