Zambia's economy continues to remain dependent on mining and, to a lesser extent, agriculture. The country is the second-largest producer of copper in Africa, and the production of cobalt and other minerals are also significant.

In 2019 non-life premiums amounted to ZMW 2.29bn (USD 177.82mn), an increase of 20.15% over 2018.

In December 2020, 20 non-life insurance companies were operating in the country. No additional insurers have been licensed since the regulator (PIA) announced a substantial increase in minimum capital requirements in late 2014.
