Italy General Insurance: Key trends and Opportunities to 2023
Published: November 13, 2019 Content info: 77 Pages

Italy's general insurance segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% over the forecast period (2018-2023). Retail insurance accounted for 68.3% of the total general GWP, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% over the forecast period. Motor insurance constituted 48.7% of the segment's DWP, followed by property with a share of 16.3% and health with 9.3%.

Key Findings:

  • The General Insurance segment was competitive, with the presence of both domestic and foreign insurers
  • The top ten insurers accounted for a 72.8% market share in 2018, while the top five insurers accounted for around 50%
  • Unipolsai Assicurazoni (20.8%), Generali Italia (14.7%) and Allianz (10.3%) were the leading insurers that year
  • Conglomerates such as Allianz, Generali and Cattolica group operate multiple general insurance business units in the country. Generali group collectively held a 17.3% market share in 2018
  • Agencies were the leading intermediary, with 79.1% of DWP in 2018. However, insurtech advancement is paving the way for new channels and forcing established ones to adapt to the changes. Developments in mobile and internet banking have allowed easy cross-selling of insurance via these platforms, expanding the presence of bancassurance in general insurance
  • While aggregator and peer-to-peer (p2p) models have already gained prominence, further innovation and the use of AI has given rise to the real-time purchase of digital low-cost insurance (usually below EUR10.0) under instant insurance. This short term insurance, lasting up to seven days, is mostly available to cover pets, winter sports and insurance related to ride-share services
