In 2016, the European market [1] had gross written premiums of €8,724 million which is an increase of 4.14% compared to 2015. With legal protection insurance premiums amounting to €3,828 million in 2016, Germany is by far the biggest market, not only in Europe but worldwide. The German market share is stable compared to last year; Germany had been losing market shares for more than a decade due to lower growth rates combined with raising importance of other markets, e.g. France, Switzerland, East European countries.

[1] Bulgaria, Cyprus, Lithuania, Malta, and Romania are not included. Either these countries do not have legal protection insurance or the premium income is neglectable
