CMTPLI loss rate going down in Armenia 

ArmInfo.The loss rate for compulsory motor third-party liability insurance (CMTPLI) is going down - 65% in the first half of 2022 against 81% in the first half of  2021, and 73% in 2019. The cause is a 19.7% year-on-year increase in  the number of insurance contracts, which caused a 21.4% increase in  insurance premiums, up to $29mln, with a simultaneous 8.7% decline in  insurance indemnities, down to $18.7mln, the Armenian Motor Insurers'   Bureau reports.  

In the first half of 2022, the number of vehicles holding CMPTL  policies increased more significantly than in the corresponding  pre-Covid period, which allowed insurance premiums to show nearly the  same upward trend as three years ago. In the first half of 2022, the  number of vehicles holding CMPTL policies increased by 12.9% per  annum against a 2.6% decline in 2021 and 11.8% in 2019. In  quantitative terms, as of July 2022, 595,373 CMPTL policy holders  were registered against 546,710 in pre-Covid year of 2019.  The  number of CMTPL contracts approached the pre-crisis rates of  increase. During the reporting period, the y-o-y rates of increase  showed an upward trend from 0.6% to 19.7% against the pre-Covid   32.9% increase in  2019. But in quantitative terms, more  CMPTL-contracts were concluded the first half of 2022 than in the  same period of 2019 - 530,284 against 508,130. Insurance premiums  totaled AMD 11.8bln ($29mln) against the pre-Covid AMD 10.2bln - a  21.4% year-on-year increase. The average insurance premium for one  CMPTL contract amounted to AMD 22,249, with the increase slowing down  from 2.7% to 1.4% (against a 5.7% decline in 2019).

Enforced CMPTL contracts showed an 18.4% year-on-year increase  (against a 0.2% decline in 2021 and a 29.6% increase in 2019), their  number reaching 539,707. Under the contracts, insurance premiums  exceeded AMD 12.4bln ($30.5mln), resuming an increase - 18.7% against  pre-Covid 14.5%. 

The y-o-y increase in the number of canceled CMPTL contracts slowed  down - 3.9-fold s to 2.3-fold, their number being 60,091, against a  rapid decrease in their number in 2019-2020. Return and returnable  premiums amounted to AMD 712.6mln ($1.7mln).

Against this background, sales of CMPTL e-policies remain high -  136,759 in the first half of 2022, with an accelerating year-on-year  increase - 52.9% to 53.5%. Moreover, a much slower rate of increase  (3.8-fold and more) was recorded as compared with the first half of  2019. In quantitative terms, a 6.5-fold increase was recorded (from  21,199 contracts). As a result, the share of e- policies in the total  number of CMPTL contracts reached 26% as of July 2022 against 20% in  2021 and the meager 3.3% in pre-Covid 2019.

In the first half of 2022, 36,862 applications for insurance  indemnities were submitted, a 4% decrease as compared with the same  period of last year (less than a year ago (against a 15.9% increase  in 2021 and a 20% increase in 2019). Paid insurance indemnities  exceeded AMD 7.6bln ($18.7mln), with a year-on-year decline of 8.7%  (against a 15.5% increase in 2021 and 15.3% increase in 2019).  Moreover, 13,528 applications received in cases of simplified  registration of road accidents (according to the European protocol),  with a 25.1% decline against 33.6% increase in 2021 and a 5.6%  increase in 2019).  Insurance indemnities paid under the European  protocol exceeded AMD 1.4bln, a year-on-year decline of 26.8% (after  an accelerating growth from 0.9% in 2019 to 49.1% in 2021), with the  average amount being AMD 77,142 - a year-on-year decline of 2.3%  (against an 11.6% growth in 2021 and a 4.4% decline in 2019). The  total amount of insurance indemnity averaged AMD 206,345, a 4.1%  decrease against a 0.4% decrease in the same period of 2021.
