Nigeria insurance market: New market research published
The Insurance Industry in Nigeria, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017 - a new market research report on 2014-03-05 14:09:02
The Nigerian insurance industry experienced strong growth over the review period, supported by relatively stable macro-economic conditions and a favorable investment climate. The insurance industry in the country is very small, yet highly crowded and competitive. The key segment driving the overall industry is the non-life segment, which accounted for the largest share of 61.6% of the industrys total written premium in 2012. The Nigerian insurance industry is regulated by the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM), which controls the operations performed by all entities including insurance companies, reinsurance companies, insurance brokers, loss adjusters and intermediaries. For low income earners, the Nigerian government has concertedly promoted micro insurance; however a poor understanding among consumers of the benefits of such products and inefficient distribution channels is limiting their spread.
