Safe as houses: Demand from general insurance has supported industry revenue growth

Revenue for the Insurance Brokerage industry has grown over the past five years, despite declining in some years. Over the five years through 2017-18, industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 2.6%. Demand from general insurance has supported industry revenue growth over this period.

Strong demand from general insurance over the current year is expected to contribute to forecast growth of 4.8%, with revenue reaching $2.2 billion in more.
