The paper discusses the performance of non-life insurance markets in the eight CEE countries that overcame transition in the 1990s and accessed European Union in May, 2004. A closer attention is given to the evaluation of two aspects of the general performance of non-life markets – polarisation and concentration. It was found that the polarisation of non-life markets between the analysed countries and other European Union members diminishes slowly. However, the concentration of non-life markets still remains high or moderate.
