Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Difficult conditions have affected the industry over the past five years, including household spending pressures and the low number of new homes coming on to the market, which limited demand for insurance. However, investment income generally grew, despite year-on-year volatility, which supported the industry. The growing number of rented properties over the past five years and an increase in premium prices during the latter part of the period also mitigated adverse conditions to some extent. Industry revenue is estimated to decrease at a compound annual rate of 0.5% over the five years through 2016-17 to £10.3 billion. Premium and investment income are estimated to account for approximately 85.5% and 14.5% of industry revenue respectively in 2016-17.
