Real GDP growth (%)
Insurance Penetration (%)
Serbia is one of six former Yugoslavian countries. Although it is the most populous, the legacy of war, sanctions and mismanagement has stunted its economy and the development of its insurance industry.
Compulsory motor third party liability (MTPL) is the largest class of business. In 2017 Serbia was the 74th largest non-life market in the world. Gross written premiums were RSD 76.09bn. Non-life insurance premiums grew by 2.2% year-on-year in the first three quarters of 2020, notwithstanding the near extinction of outbound travel business.
Because of low living standards and the absence of an insurance culture, non-life penetration and density are both extremely low in Serbia. There is almost no personal lines business apart from compulsory motor third party liability: household contents, for example, represented just 7.7% of property premium income in 2018.
