Motor Insurance - UK - March 2019
Covered in this report
This report explores the UK domestic car insurance market. It includes discussion of the size of the market, including a forecast for the value of premiums over the next five years. Key market drivers and regulatory changes are discussed, as well as the performance and activities of major players in the industry.
Mintel’s exclusive consumer research includes brand research, looking at consumers’ awareness, use and perceptions of selected car insurers as well as the type of insurance held. The Report also looks at renewal behaviour and the reasons why some drivers fail to shop around for policies, factors influencing policy choice and satisfaction with existing cover. Finally, the research explores attitudes towards car insurance, such as the importance of getting high-level cover and the extent to which people think insurers are all the same.
“The expected revision of the personal injury discount rate to a more insurer-friendly level will allow providers to ramp up price competition. This is crucial as consumers remain price-sensitive, despite a preference for high-level cover. However, some upward pressure on prices will remain, as the cost of car repair claims hit record levels in 2018.”
– Rich Shepherd, Senior Financial Services Research Analyst
This report looks at the following areas:
- Drivers have good intentions to buy high-level cover, but cost is key
- The market is congested but has room for a truly different provider
- Impressive levels of satisfaction can be problematic
