Facts & figures – Romanian insurance market

The non-life insurance market is dominated by car insurance with a share of 76% registered in 2021. The broke age market has grown by 26% in 2021, resulting in an intermediation degree of more than 80% for non-life insurance. The military conflict between Russia and Ukraine at the beginning of 2022 introduced new challenges to the market.
