The "UK
Commercial Motor Insurance: Market Dynamics & Opportunities 2017"

report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

"UK Commercial Motor Insurance: Market Dynamics & Opportunities 2017",
analyzes the UK commercial motor insurance market, looking at market
size as well as changes in premiums, claims, road casualties, the motor
parc, regulations, and opportunities. It discusses competitors in the
market, how the market is likely to change due to telematics and
driverless cars, and provides future forecasts of market size up to 2021.

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:

  • Gross written premiums (GWP) for the commercial motor insurance market
    grew by 4.5% to 4.17bn in 2016.
  • The claims environment, alongside personal motor insurance, remains in
    a state of uncertainty around the impact of the discount rate
    reduction to -0.75% and whiplash claim reforms.
  • There are concerns among industry experts around longer-term market
    profitability and the availability of reserves to bolster combined
    operating ratios (CORs), particularly if the predicted negative
    impacts of leaving the EU come to fruition.
