STATISTICS: SLOVAK Rep., FY2016: apparently stagnating business

According to the Slovak Insurance Association data, the Slovak insurers ended 2016 with GWP of EUR 1,987 million, a result which is more or less in line with the previous year's premium production.

Life insurance GWP went down by about 7%, mostly because of the business reduction on the single premium segment, according some market sources. Non-life insurance lines saw a 4.3% increase in GWP, with several players mentioning motor insurance as the main driver. Yet, as at this time very few official data are available, one should consider these data as only informatory.

Although official data concerning the market rankings are not available, we have gathered some information from the annual reports published by the market players. Overall, the market hierarchy seems to be quite similar to the last official rankings available, for the year 2014.

Thus, according to the VIENNA Insurance Group report for 2016, the three insurers representing the Austrian group in Slovakia - Kooperativa, Komunalna and PSLSP -, together account for a 32.9% market share.

The GENERALI subsidiary is holding, according to the Group's statement, for a 7.5% share of the life insurance business, and a 11.5% of the P&C market.

In 2015, according to XPRIMM calculations, the ALLIANZ subsidiaries had a market share of 34.8% on the P&C segment and 23.4% on the life insurance market.
