Strategic Analysis of North American Market for Telematics-Enabled
Usage-Based Insurance

Description:    This Frost & Sullivan research service titled Strategic Analysis of North American Market for
                Telematics-enabled Usage-based Insurance analyses the dynamics and trends of the market and
                projects the outlook for the market and the opportunities it offers to the different members of the
                value chain. The study covers the light passenger vehicle market. In this research, Frost &
                Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following markets: passenger cars and
                commercial vehicles.

                Market Overview

                Drivers Clocking Low Miles to Benefit from the North American Telematics-enabled Usage-based
                Insurance Market

                Auto insurance companies collaborate with system suppliers and telematics service providers to
                offer usage-based insurance (UBI) which is also referred as ‘pay as you drive’ (PAYD) insurance.
                This growing telematics service is already being offered in California after new regulations were
                passed recently. UBI takes into account the various parameters such as miles driven, time of the
                day driven, driver's acceleration and braking patterns by the insured within a particular time frame.

                While drivers clocking high-mileage end up paying a higher premium than the charges in
                conventional insurance models, those with fewer miles and in the low-income groups will benefit
                from the value-added telematics-based services that can be made available on a single platform.
                Yet, customers are apprehensive about switching to UBI due to privacy infringement issues.
                “Tracking one’s daily movements for a savings of 30 percent on the premium cannot find favor with
                customers, who regard privacy as extremely important,” observes the analyst of this research
                service. “Insurance companies face a potential restraint as the system’s basic principle is to keep
                track of its customers through a global positioning system (GPS).”

                The new regulations in California have banned the use of location data for most purposes. However,
                they also clarify that insurers and motor clubs are not prohibited from offering optional devices to
                drivers, as they will help identify the location of the vehicle for providing emergency road, theft,
                map, or travel assistance services and could be used by State Governments to access all accident
                data. The current market is controlled and driven by insurance companies that lease services to a
                telematics service provider (TSP), who, in turn, act as the solutions provider to the insured on a
                contractual basis. Instead of managing the complex value chain with individual suppliers, the
                insurance companies should collaborate with end-to-end telematics providers. Telematics providers
                can provide service and data to different participants in the value chain. Telematics solutions can
                be leased rather than sold, as the insured is not likely to bear the costs of the same.

                Another possible reason for the slow uptake of UBI is the lack of customized solutions that offer
                bundled services, as insurance companies depend on the introduction and growth of bundled
                telematics-based solutions. In order to increase the activation rates of UBI, insurers must form
                partnerships with system suppliers who develop an open telematics platform, enabling multiple
                services in a single solution. Government authorities can implement legislations mandating the
                provision of additional telematics services along with UBI, which could alter the current scenario by
                changing consumer perception and acceptance. This move would provide the information and
                customer feedback necessary for select UBI models. “Creating value for users can help customize
                and deliver a unique, compelling, and defendable service proposition,” says the analyst. “Offering
                customized tariff options for different customer segments based on an effective risk analysis can
                assist mass market introduction of UBI.” Insurance companies should also increase focus on the
                commercial vehicle market. Driver training and risk management holds the key for fleet companies,
                where cost cutting through reduced premium is expected to improve their revenue potential.
