“Increasing demand for telematics, connected car services, and IoT in vehicles and high usage of smartphones are driving the growth of the usage-based insurance market globally”
The usage-based insurance market is projected to reach USD 125.7 billion by 2027 from an estimated USD 24.0 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 23.0% during the forecast period. All major players such as UnipolSai Assicurazioni S.p.A, Progressive Casualty Insurance Company, Allstate Insurance Company, State Farm Automobile Mutual Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and other UBI technologies providers are developing solutions and technologies that can accurately analyze vehicle data and driver behavior. The companies aim to improve their UBI offerings by accurate determination of premiums.
The increasing adoption of telematics and advancements in safety technology have helped reduce claims. The European Union has mandated e-assistance systems in case of an accident. The eCall system, mandatory for all new EU vehicles since March 2018, speeds up emergency-response times by 40–50%. Also, Russia mandated a similar system for new cars in the end of 2017, while Mexico has mandated radio-frequency-identification (RFID) tags to bolster vehicle-antitheft systems. Many other countries, including China, Germany, Singapore, and South Africa, have voluntary systems that provide UBI incentives. However, the ambiguity over regulations and legislations and lack of standardized systems can hinder market growth.
“PAYD segment is expected to be the largest market by package type”
Pay-As-You-Drive (PAYD) is estimated to be the largest segment during the forecast period. The key advantages of PAYD are ease of deployment, no complex algorithms for working, and cost-effectiveness for the insurer as well as consumers. Secondly, PAYD insurance encourages consumers to drive less and drive green. This reduces vehicle emissions and contributes to the worldwide efforts for environment betterment. As people drive less, the accidental risks associated with drivers reduce. Additionally, PHYD and MHYD gather multiple data points about driver behavior, which the driver may not be comfortable sharing. This makes PAYD the preferred choice. In addition, PHYD and MHYD record rash driving or speeding that attract higher premiums. Hence, many users stick to PAYD insurance plans.
“On-Road Vehicle segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR”
On-road vehicle is estimated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Initially, the adoption of usage-based insurance is likely to be less in on-road vehicles. As the penetration of UBI is expected to increase in new vehicles, the UBI market for on-road vehicles will also increase at a rapid pace. The major countries that are expected high penetration of UBI are the US, Italy, Germany, UK, and China. The UBI penetration in vehicle parc is expected to increase with a double growth rate in these countries.
“The Asia Oceania market is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period”
The Asia Oceania usage-based insurance market is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional market. The growing adoption of IoT and telematics in China, Japan, South Korea, and India is expected to drive market growth in the region. Rising pollution in APAC countries such as China is a major concern. Thus, the governments in this region are focusing on less CO2 emission as well as fuel-efficient solutions.
Several companies plan to integrate telematics and IoT enabled navigation in new vehicles to reduce carbon emission and offer real-time emission data. For instance, Maruti Suzuki launched Suzuki Connect, ’an advanced telematics solution for its customers’ in India. Similarly, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Standardization Administration of China together issued the Guidelines for Developing the Standards System of the Telematics Industry (Intelligent and Connected Vehicles). Such initiatives would boost the growth of vehicle telematics, which in turn would drive the growth of usage-based insurance market during the forecast period.
