Recent years have seen a currency devaluation and high inflation in Malawi which have hampered insurance premium growth in dollar terms. The non-life market including personal accident and health stood at MWK 54.62bn in 2019. Natural hazards are usually in the form of droughts and floods although major hailstorms are a regular occurrence and affect the agricultural sector. It is a modest market with low penetration in non-life insurance even by regional standards.

There are eight non-life companies on the register of licensed entities with medical aid providers still to be added.
