CMTIA was formed in 1994 due to vast changes in working practices and conditions, a downswing in trade, and an increase of inflation, competition from shops and stores and the revision of Sunday Trading Laws. It was felt that there was a need for market traders to be able to obtain insurance cover at a reasonable cost, which addressed the requirements of the law whilst benefitting their trade as a whole.
