While all CEE insurance markets have recorded positive growth rates, four of them have reported outstanding, double digit increases of the GWP volume: Poland (18%), Latvia (21.3%), Lithuania (11.7%) and Estonia (10.1%).
On the paid claims side, many of the region's markets have experienced significant increases in the suns paid by insurers, mostly driven by the extreme weather events occurred last year.
Poland maintained its unquestionable top position in regional ranking, accounting for 41.4% of the region's GWP. Czechia ranks second (16.3% market share), followed by Hungary (8.5%) and Slovenia (6%). The Slovak and Romanian markets have closely competed for the fifth position, with market shares differentiated by only 0.03%: the Slovak Republic (5.91% -based on the unaudited results), Romania (5.88%).
