The Global Usage-based Insurance Market is poised to grow at CAGR above 29 % over the forecast time frame 2019-2026 and reach the market value around USD 190 billion by 2026.
Rising demand for accurate quotation of motor insurance among consumers, as a result of rising claims and fraud increasing the motor premium, is driving the Usage-based insurance market. Penetration of UBI is considerably high in Italy and South Africa, owing to high motor insurance cost due to high rate of theft/fraud in these countries. Insurance companies are taking active measures with pilot programs launched worldwide to boost the penetration of UBI.
Declining prices of connecting devices and connected mobility technologies is fueling the adoption of UBI. Demand for appropriate premium charges among consumers is rising, as conventional insurance charges a safe and rash driver equally. The UBI insurance model has variable charges based on the safe driving behavior of the driver and hence, demand for this model is expected to rise in the near future. The motor insurance industry is facing losses due to increasing competition and cost of claims. UBI insurance helps assess better risk and maintain profitability.
Increasing use of insurance models such as PAYD and PHYD contributes to the growth in the use-basis insurance market. UBI determined the premium on the basis of driving behavior by insurance companies. In order to monitor motive patterns, telematics and other communication technologies will lead to an excellent growth of the market over the projected timeline. Factors, such as increasing popularity of managing solutions, increased penetration of smartphones and an increase in UBI usage by insurance companies in order to enhance profitability are attributed to the market growth. Use-based insurance enables insurers to assess risks on the basis of the profile of individual drivers, travel characteristics and the actual vehicle condition. This helps them to improve their risk assessment and to prevent fraudulent claims. Insurers use telematics insurance to increase their customer base by using driving information to improve policy pricing.
The use of telematic smartphones enables carmakers and insurers to collect driving data and record the hard braking and acceleration trip parameters. They use the driving data to design insurance policies based on usage and to determine the premium of the policyholder. The enormous adoption of intelligent telecoms is likely to drive the growth of the use-based market for insurance.
In terms of policy type, the pay-as-you-drive (PAYD) segment held a dominant share of the global market. PAYD is a simple UBI model based on miles driven and hence, is widely accepted. Increasing adoption of telematics and advanced driver assistance features is projected to boost the pay-how-you-drive (PHYD) segment in the near future. PHYD takes into account various parameters such as acceleration, time of ride, route of ride, and sudden braking, and is more effective in gauging the risk of the driver.
Based on device type, the black box segment held a leading share of the global Usage-based insurance market. However, the smartphone segment is expected to expand in the near future, as it is a low-cost solution with no additional investment.
Based on region, the global usage-based insurance market has been segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe is expected to lead the global Usage-based insurance market, owing to higher adoption of telematics supporting the UBI working and consumer awareness.
