Summary

The Ugandan insurance industry recorded a CAGR of 18.8% during 2009–2013. The healthy growth in the industry was due to the strong performance of the personal accident and health insurance segment, which registered a review-period CAGR of 22.1%. This was followed by the life and non-life segments, with respective CAGRs of 21.8% and 17.2%. A strengthening economy and rising exports are expected to support the growth of the insurance industry.

Key Highlights

• Non-life insurance accounted for 64.2% of the total insurance industry's written premium in 2013. This is followed by the personal accident and health with a share of 24.6% and life with a share of 11.2% in 2013.
• The strengths of the Ugandan insurance sector lie in its vibrant regulatory framework. The government has updated insurance regulations several times in order to make them more consistent with emerging trends and changing market dynamics.
• The increase in the minimum paid-up capital required for insurance business operations restricts the entrance of new insurers to the country.
• Around 90% of the population in Uganda is poor, with 86.1% living in rural areas as of 2013.
• The Ugandan insurance industry is small and underpenetrated; there were 22 insurance companies, 29 insurance brokers, 17 loss assessors and 828 agents involved in insurance business at the end of 2012.
• Insurance penetration increased from 0.601% in 2009 to 0.675% in 2013, and is expected to reach 0.731% in 2018.
