Japan Motor Insurance Market Analysis
The Japanese motor insurance market is valued at USD 52.89 billion currently and poised to register at a CAGR of 3% in the forecast period. The market is expected to grow over the next few years because more people are buying cars, more businesses are using artificial intelligence (AI), and other factors.
Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, motor insurance in Japan was severely impacted due to the low sale of automobiles. Though the sector can hold itself in the digital space, it remains the most affected as far as the whole motor insurance business is concerned. The worst impact of the pandemic was on the dealers and offline insurers, as vehicles could not be bought or sold due to the lockdown.
In Japan, net premiums for mandatory auto insurance (CALI) were about USD 6.3 billion in the fiscal year 2021. This was the lowest amount in a decade. Net premiums written for voluntary car insurance reached nearly USD 41.1 billion. Motor insurance may provide financial protection against car theft and damage triggered by incidents other than traffic crashes, such as keying, bad weather, or natural disasters, as well as damage caused by colliding with stationary objects.

Japan Motor Insurance Market Trends
Increase in Motor Vehicles
In 2021, 82.08 million motor vehicles were anticipated to be in use in Japan, continuing the series of record registration numbers. The main driver of this increase was the number of passenger cars registered. As of March 31, 2022, approximately 70.12 million passenger cars were on Japan's streets, up from about 58.73 million in 2012. The total number of motor vehicles in use, including motorcycles and similar vehicles, reached over 78.4 million in 2022.
People all over the world know that Japan's population is getting older and smaller every year.Nevertheless, the number of vehicles in use is growing. One justification for this can be found on the demand side of the market. While the typical household size has decreased, the number of households has continued to grow. Furthermore, supply has adjusted to the Japanese market with affordable small and lightweight vehicles.
But the change in population is likely to cause the number of vehicles to go down sooner or later as registrations are canceled and fewer are given out. This process could be improved because households, especially in cities, are less likely to buy their own cars. As a substitute, the market for shared vehicle use is expected to increase.
