Insurance Penetration (%)
Mali is a small non-life market with a low level of insurance penetration at 0.32% of GDP, well below some of the more dynamic economies in the CIMA zone markets. Although the market has generally recorded steady year-on-year growth in written premium, a significant expansion of the market has been hindered factors including a lack of a culture of purchasing insurance.
After downward revisions to GDP in the first months of the pandemic, external sources' projections for annual growth in 2020 ranged between 1.5% and a contraction of 1.1% for the year.
The non-life market (including personal accident and healthcare) grew by 2.97% in 2018, with personal accident and healthcare up by nearly 19% year on year. There were nine non-life and three life companies were operating in Mali. Insurance is sold mainly through brokers or general agents.
