Albania was part of the Ottoman Empire from 1385 and achieved independence only in 1912. After World War 2 the country was subjected to the most extreme form of communism experienced by many European nations.
The Albanian insurance market has developed only since the fall of the Communist regime in 1991. The position today is that the industry is professionally regulated, there is a comprehensive insurance law and the number of foreign equity participants in the market is increasing. Compulsory MTPL still accounts for the majority of market volumes.
Albania has one of the smallest insurance markets in the world. In 2019 total non-life premium income (excluding personal accident and healthcare) amounted to ALL 15.15bn.
In 2020 the non-life market comprised eight private sector (general) companies.
Albania participates in the regional property catastrophe pooling arrangement, Europa Re, initiated by the World Bank.
