The UK's non-life insurance segment was the second-largest in the country's insurance industry, accounting for 27.3% of the gross written premium in 2013. The UK's non-life segment was the fourth-largest in the world after the US, Japan and China in terms of gross written premium in 2012. The gross written premium of the non-life segment increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1% during the review period (2009-2013). The increase was partly due to country's infrastructure development, construction activities for the Olympic Games in 2012, rising car sales, and growing exports. Also, due to heavy flood losses in 2012 and 2013, companies recorded an increase in purchase of property insurance products that supported the growth of property insurance during the review period.
