Research and Markets: The Insurance Industry in Eritrea, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017

Business Wire


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The Insurance Industry in Eritrea, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017" report to their offering.

The insurance industry is relatively small in size and encompasses a population of 5.7 million. Insurance penetration as a percentage of GDP is very low at 0.4% in 2012 and this was almost entirely represented by the non-life insurance segment alone.

A lack of awareness about insurance, particularly in rural areas where 75% of the country's population reside, is the major growth hinder-er of life insurance. Furthermore, the social and family structures in the country often negate insurance benefits.
