Motor Insurance Market Trends




  • Growing number of vehicles on the road is driving the market growth




The market for motor insurance is anticipated to develop in the future due to the rise in the number of vehicles on the road. Vehicles used for passenger and cargo transportation on land, including buses, cars, and trucks, are self-propelled vehicles that run on electricity. The primary reason for the rise in demand for motor insurance is the benefits it provides, such as cost coverage for injured parties, lost wages, vehicle repair, medical coverage, and any property damaged in an accident. People purchase motor insurance to protect themselves from financial losses. For instance, in 2021, 11,34,61,353 automobiles were registered in the United States, according to the National Transportation Statistics 2021 report released by the US Department of Transportation, an administrative branch of the federal government of the United States. In 2020, 10,51,43,990 vehicles were registered nationwide, compared to 8,317,363 motorbikes. Additionally, the UK's car manufacturing increased by 7.4% to 69,524 units in November 2022, as per to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), a trade association for motor vehicles located in the United Kingdom. As a result, the market for motor insurance is expanding due to the rise in the number of cars on the road.


In addition, people's ignorance caused collisions and accidents, endangering or harming third parties. Although third party liability insurance covers all property damage caused by the vehicle's owner to any person, even those not covered by the policy, basic insurance does not cover damage to cars. Financial protection is offered by this coverage against injury, death, disability, or property damage to other parties, including pedestrians, drivers, and passengers in other vehicles. But schemes like this one aid in safeguarding other people's interests. In the upcoming years, the motor insurance market will have numerous profitable chances because of all these variables. In order to simplify motor insurance, IRDAI suggested and developed new rules and regulations in 2019. These new rules and regulations require third-party liability coverage to be present at the time of motor insurance purchase and provide some clarity on the subject.


The primary trend that is becoming more and more popular in the motor insurance market is technological innovation. To improve their position in the market, major players in the motor insurance space are implementing cutting-edge technological solutions into their insurance operations. In September 2022, for instance, the technology company XA Group, based in Dubai, introduced Addenda, a blockchain-powered digital platform that will help insurers reconcile their motor vehicle recovery receivables. The company intends to further enhance Addenda by integrating current products into the platform, which will assist Addenda in managing all the significant touch-points in the automobile claims value chain by connecting insurers, brokers, repairers, and customers. Thus, driving the motor insurance market revenue.
