Life insurance was the second-largest segment in the Greek insurance industry in 2013, accounting for 40.0% of the industry's total gross written premiums. The segment's value declined at a review-period (2009–2013) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -10.5%. The economy depleted after the eurozone debt crisis, due to factors such as a rise in levels of unemployment, decline in income levels and decreasing GDP. The level of awareness of the need for life insurance products in Greece is generally low. The life insurance penetration rate for the Greek life insurance segment as a percentage of GDP was 0.89% in 2013; much lower than the UK's 8.7% and Germany's 3.4%. The low penetration signifies a highly underpenetrated segment, with a lot of scope for growth. The segment is expected to record a forecast-period (2013–2018) CAGR of 2.9%. Growth will be driven by a gradual recovery in the Greek economy.
