The usage-based insurance market is projected to exhibit an accelerated growth between 2018 and 2024 as the usage of insurance models such as PAYD and PHYD is rapidly growing. With UBI, the insurance companies determine the premium based on drivers’ driving behavior. The adoption of telematics and other communication technologies to monitor the driving patterns will lead towards excellent market growth over the forecast timeline. The market growth is attributed to the factors such as growing popularity of the Manage-How-You-Drive solutions, increased penetration of smartphones, and rise in the usage of UBI by insurance companies to increase profitability. UBI makes it possible for the insurers to evaluate risks based on each driver’s profile, trip characteristics, and the current condition of the vehicle. This helps them in a better assessment of the risks and the prevention of fraudulent claims. The insurers are using insurance telematics to increase their customer base by using driving data to improve the policy pricing.

The adoption of smartphones with telematics applications enables car makers and insurers to collect driving data and record trip parameters of hard braking, and acceleration. The driving data then is used by them to design UBI policies and in determining the policyholder’s premium. The huge adoption of smart-phone-based telematics is expected to drive the usage-based insurance market growth.

The PAYD market is expected to register an excellent CAGR of over 19% during the forecast timeline. PAYD insurance focuses on monitoring miles driven and pricing policies based on the mileage. With PAYD, insurers provide customers an option to select the number of miles they want to have and enable them to buy additional miles in case they need them. PAYD promotes safe driving as the customers will be charged more if they do not drive well.

In 2017, device-based PAYD solutions held a dominant share of over 80% in the usage-based insurance market. Various devices, such as odometers, OBD dongles, and smartphones, are used to gather the driving information to determine the driving behavior, fuel efficiency, and road conditions. These devices hold the largest share of the usage-based insurance market as they are easy to install and also provide a wide range of connected car services ranging from diagnostics, remote car control, maintenance alerts, and location tracking.

The embedded telematics segment is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR of over 26% in the overall market between 2018 and 2024.

The telematics technology has transformed the automotive insurance industry. Earlier, the automotive insurance policies were based on factors such as demographics and personal information. With the advent of telematics, the insurers consider several factors such as hard braking, acceleration, location, and the type of the road used to analyze the driving information. Telematics data enables them to assess the driver profile risks and develop new customized UBI policies based on their driving habits. The rise in the number of connected cars has also contributed toward the growth of the UBI as they collect a massive amount of data, which then can be used by car makers and insurers to determine the driving behavior and vehicle conditions.
