Online PR News – 13-July-2010 – – Romania Insurance Market Intelligence "The insurance industry of Romania has been growing at an impressive rate. This growth was broadly based on overall economic growth of the Romanian economy. Rise in the employment rate, along with the rising wages, has increased money supply with the households, which, in turn, has increased consumption and the notable fall in the inflation rate has increased the potential of savings. All these factors have helped the growth in the insurance industry of Romania. The low penetration level is also providing abundance of opportunities for the insurance market. Low level of density in comparison to other European countries is another important factor to aid the growth of life assurance, savings and other products.

Romanian insurance market consists of two segments, general insurance and life insurance, with the former being the dominating between the two. The general insurance segment further consists of property insurance, motor insurance, liabilities, credit and warranties and other lines of insurance. Motor insurance, which dominates the entire insurance market in Romania, has also grown considerably as a result of increasing vehicles sales and the rising demand of cars as the household income and consumption is increasing in the country. Unit-linked products have gained considerable popularity in addition to the market share. The government of Romania has formulated the law on compulsory home insurance, which would make the insurance of the house mandatory for the owner of the house. This would further add to the increment of the total insurance market of the country.
