Commercial motor insurance market in UK grew slightly in 2016. This was a result of economic growth, which in turn increased business prosperity and therefore the investment in commercial vehicles to support business expansion. Despite growth in commercial motor, the market is heading towards unprofitable territory as it is expected that rates will begin to harden over the next few years, until further government reforms are introduced that might lower claims costs.
Key findings include in this report -
The commercial motor parc continued to increase in 2016, with light goods vehicles (LGVs) and company cars driving the majority of growth. However, with the UK's vote to leave the EU it is expected that motor parc growth will slow, as businesses will have less confidence and money to invest in new commercial vehicles until the economy begins to recover. While reforms will provide instant benefits upon implementation, telematics and driverless technology will help reduce the frequency of claims in the longer term.
Insurers should encourage customers to invest in and utilize telematics and driverless technology. Benefits will include lower claims costs, through which savings can then be passed on to customers while increasing profitability. Commercial motor insurers are facing a challenging environment with Brexit, the Ogden rate change, and whiplash reform. Insurers must continue to monitor the outcomes and design approaches accordingly.
