Despite years of a civil war that has devastated large parts of Syria's economy and threatened the survival of the country, it is perhaps surprising that there is any insurance activity at all but a market continues to exist and to function.
According to statistics produced by the supervisory authority, the non-life insurance market (excluding personal accident and health business) in 2019 increased by 13.89% compared to 2018, which itself had witnessed a 20.27% fall. In US dollar terms, however, there was a continued decline in premium volume and, compared to 2010, before the outbreak of the conflict, the market in 2019 was less than 1% of its pre-war size.
