DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zqxpcq/personal_accident) has announced the addition of the "Personal Accident and Health Insurance in Belgium, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018" report to their offering.

Personal accident and health insurance accounted for 10.3% of the Belgian insurance industry's written premium in 2013, after recording a CAGR of 2.3% during the review period (2009-2013). This growth was primarily due to increases in medical expenditure, and Belgian outbound tourism. The expansion of the segment was also supported by positive demographic factors such as increased life expectancy and the country's large urban population. An increase in the government's private and public healthcare expenditure also fueled segment growth, although this was partially offset by weak economic growth and the impact of the European debt crisis.
