Real GDP growth (%)
Insurance Penetration (%)
Armenia is considered a small emerging insurance market. As in some other post-Soviet economies, insurance culture and product penetration remains low, especially in the consumer segment. There are few compulsory insurances although compulsory motor third party liability has been a requirement since 1 January 2011. There is an exposure to earthquake risk and the country experienced a severe earthquake in Gyumri (Leninakhan) in December 1988. Under the supervisory responsibility of the Central Bank, improved legislation, regulations and prudential standards have all led to market consolidation, increased capitalisation and greater professionalism within the insurance market in Armenia, so the market is gradually evolving and becoming more sophisticated.
