A Fast-Moving Auto Industry Presents Challenges and Opportunities
The automotive industry transformation continues to have significant repercussions in the insurance industry. With improving sophistication in car technology, telematics, and consumer behaviors, insurance carriers face new and unprecedented challenges spanning the entire lifecycle of the policy from research to claims. Still, personal and commercial auto insurance remain the industry bellwether as the largest product lines accounting for more than $300 billion in annual premiums.
Online auto policy purchases continue to grow with the latest research citing 43% of consumers shopping online – a trend that is expected to increase in the coming years. Further, usage-based insurance (UBI) awareness and penetration seems to be on the rise with the major carriers modifying the traditional policy with a pay-as-you-use option.
Carriers also continue to look for effective ways to leverage telematics to offer new insurance models, using data to better identify factors that can improve the risk management function.
