Senegal is the third-largest non-life insurance market in the CIMA zone (behind Ivory Coast and Cameroon). Although it is still relatively under-developed compared with a larger market like South Africa, it has a higher per capita spend than the two leading CIMA markets at 0.62% of GDP in 2018. The market has benefited recently from political stability and from investment in infrastructure to support delivery of the country's strategic development plan (Plan Senegal Emergent - PSE).

The non-life market generated premium income of XOF 122.33bn (including personal accident and healthcare) in 2019 based on provisional figures from the insurers' association. There were 19 non-life insurers operating in this market in 2020.
