Insurance Penetration (%)
Azerbaijan's non-life market could be considered a small to medium-sized emerging market. As in some other post-Soviet economies, insurance culture and product penetration remains quite low, especially in the consumer segment, but in 2018 the market was beginning to show signs of recovery after four years constrained by tough macro-economic conditions such as low oil prices, restricted bank lending, and currency devaluation.
The market premium depends primarily on the compulsory classes of property and MTPL as well as voluntary premiums across all classes related to the major corporate business in the oil, gas, energy, real estate and construction sectors. At 1 November 2018, there were 21 licensed insurers in the market, three life and 18 non-life, plus one specialist local reinsurer. The development of the insurance market under the country’s regulator, FIMSA, is featured in the Strategic Roadmap for Development of Financial Services in the Republic of Azerbaijan which was published on 14 December 2016.
