Insurance Penetration (%)
Slovakia, officially the Slovak Republic, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It adopted the euro in January 2009, with the hope of achieving greater economic stability, and has since proven to be one of the EU's most disciplined economies. Compared to other EU countries, Slovakia has not been as seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Insurance penetration is relatively low, except for compulsory motor third party liability. In 2019 total market income reported by the regulator, the National Bank of Slovakia, was EUR 2.27bn, of which non-life accounted for EUR 1.10bn, plus EUR 161.32mn of PA and healthcare written by non-life insurers.
In October 2020 there were 29 active non-life insurers registered in the country, 12 being locally incorporated and the balance being 17 branches of EU-domiciled insurers. In addition there are 657 registered EU insurers able to provide cross-border facilities in Slovakia (not split between life and non-life), effectively subsidiaries of EU-domiciled international players registered and incorporated in other EU countries.
