DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Insurance Telematics in Europe and North America - 6th Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

What are the latest trends in the Insurance telematics market? The report estimates that the total number of insurance telematics policies in force in the European market reached 16.2 million at the end of 2021. Growing at a compound annual growth rate of 21.5 percent, the number of active insurance telematics policies in Europe is estimated to reach 35.1 million by 2025.

In North America, the total number of insurance telematics policies in force is forecasted to increase from an estimated 21.7 million policies at the end of 2021 to reach 49.0 million policies by 2025.

The integration of telematics technology constitutes the latest revolution in the automotive insurance industry. The concept of telematics is a portmanteau of telecommunications - long-distance communications - and informatics - the science of information. Telematics in general thus refers to the collection of information related to remote objects such as vehicles via telecommunications networks.

The introduction of telematics technology in the context of automotive insurance is commonly referred to as usage-based insurance (UBI) or insurance telematics. Solutions of this type generally enable automotive insurers to improve pricing mechanisms based on actual driving data, gain better control of claims and differentiate their offerings to current and prospective policyholders. Variants of insurance telematics that have been popularised over the years include behavior-based pricing models such as Pay-As-You-Drive (PAYD), Pay-How-You-Drive (PHYD), and Manage-How-You-Drive (MHYD).

The addressable market for insurance telematics is significant. A total of around 317 million vehicles were in use in the EU22+3 in 2019, including over 277 million passenger cars. In North America, an estimated total of around 293 million vehicles were in use in 2019, out of which passenger cars and light trucks are estimated to represent around 277 million vehicles.

Some kind of basic automotive insurance is mandatory in most developed countries and there are in addition several subcategories of insurance that provide coverage for different types of unforeseen events involving motor vehicles. Motor gross written premiums in EU22+3 reached a total of over € 142.3 billion in 2019. The equivalent number for North America was US$ 253.2 billion (€ 226.2 billion) in 2019.

The insurance telematics market is currently in a phase of strong growth which is expected to accelerate in the coming years. Europe and North America so far represent the vast majority of all insurance telematics programs and active policies from an international perspective, and the front-running national markets include the US, Italy, Canada, the UK, and Germany.

The report estimates that the total number of insurance telematics policies in force in the European market reached 13.1 million at the end of 2020. Growing at a compound annual growth rate of 21.7 percent, the number of insurance telematics policies in force in Europe is estimated to reach 35.1 million by 2025. In North America, the total number of insurance telematics policies in force is forecasted to increase from an estimated 16.7 million policies at the end of 2020 to reach 49.0 million policies by 2025, representing a compound annual growth rate of 24.0 percent.

In the US, the top three insurers in terms of UBI policies have all introduced smartphone-based solutions to supplement or replace the previously used OBD dongles. The several US and Canadian insurers have during the recent year re-assessed and re-launched their telematics programs. The North American insurance carriers are also exploring claims-related insurance telematics and many are adding distracted driving parameters in their UBI.

The European insurance telematics market is still dominated by insurers in Italy and the UK, with an estimated 9.7 million and 1.3 million policies respectively. The market in Germany has grown considerably during 2020 and reached about 0.7 million telematics policies. Uptake on all other markets is considerably lower, with between 120,000 and 440,000 policies in Spain, France, Benelux as well as Central and Eastern Europe.
