UBI Gaining Prominence Among Auto Insurers

UBI, which allows insurance providers to vary premiums depending on the behavior of consumers, is gaining traction amongst auto insurers. In particular it is used in vehicle insurance based on the vehicle usage and driving behavior of drivers. The popularity of UBI is driven by the increased use of smartphones with features such as Global Positioning System (GPS), accelerometers and g-force tracking, which can be used to substitute telematics devices with mobile apps. Under UBI, auto insurers are offering pay as you drive (PAYD) and pay how you drive (PHYD) services. While PAYD insurance premium is calculated based on the distance covered by a vehicle, PHYD insurance premium is calculated based on the driving behavior of insured consumers. UBI is rapidly growing in regions such as Europe, Asia and America. According to a report by EY, global market penetration of UBI services is expected to increase from about 1% in 2015 to 15% by 2020.


Asia Pacific was the largest region in the insurance providers market in 2017, accounting for $1.6 trillion or more than one-third of the market share.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, peer-to-peer insurance is gradually gaining prominence both in emerging and developed markets. This growth is expected to be driven by reduced cost of premium in emerging countries resulting from improved internet penetration in such regions. Peer-to-peer insurance is based on pooling insurance premiums of participating individuals that can be used to compensate future uncertain losses and share the left-over amount among participants. It aims to reduce premium and overhead costs when compared to traditional Insurance Providers, decrease inefficiencies and increase transparency of businesses.
