Lesotho's economy expanded by 3.1% in 2011, demonstrating its resilience to uncertain global economic conditions and reduced revenues from the South African Custom Union (SACU), as well as natural disasters such as floods. According to the African Development Bank, the economy is expected to grow by 4.0% and 4.5% in 2012 and 2013 respectively, supported by the expansion of the country's mining sector and the ongoing infrastructure investment by the government. Despite economic challenges, Lesotho's insurance industry also remained resilient and registered a CAGR of 11.4% during the review period (2008-2012).

Key Highlights

* Despite economic challenges, Lesotho's insurance industry remained resilient and registered a CAGR of 11.4% during the review period (2008-2012).
* Unlike most markets in the African region, Lesotho's life insurance segment is the largest in the country's insurance industry.
* According to the Central Bank of Lesotho (CBL), six insurance companies were operating in the country's insurance industry at the end of 2011.
* Growing public investment in infrastructure, new product development (micro-insurance) and rising healthcare expenditure will be the major drivers of the insurance industry over the forecast period (2012-2017).
* Furthermore, development in the mining and construction sectors will create employment opportunities and will lead to increased demand for personal and commercial line insurance products.
