The insurance market in Algeria is one of the fastest growing markets in the country. When compared to the size of the economy, it is relatively small. The insurance market has low penetration and density coverage. The premiums are most collected from non – life insurance, though the life insurance market has higher growth rates. After a major legal change in 2011, the insurance market was differentiated into life and non – life insurance markets.
In the non – life segment, automotive insurance contributes to the largest share in the segment. Over the past years, the profit margins from the transport insurance have shrunk. Trends show strong growth in fire, agricultural and miscellaneous insurances. Slower transport insurance growth cites increased investments in real estate as the major reason for slow growing automotive market, that has resulted in slower automotive insurance growth. However, this trend is expected to be short term due to expanding highway network and a young population on the road, who are highly prone to accidents.
Other non – life insurances that will see growth are multi – risk home cover and natural disaster insurance. There has been an increase in businesses engaged in risk consulting and analysis that evaluate risks relating to fire, storage and natural disasters. Along with these, other reforms like independent regulatory authority, flexibility and strategic goals are required to ensure economic prosperity.
