Market Overview

The US property and casualty insurance market is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 6% during the forecast period.

  • Nine months of 2019 delivered solid underwriting gains and brought the industry surplus to a new record. Net written premium growth seems small when compared against the unusually high nine months 2018 level, but the two-year average growth rate is the strongest in years. The US property and casualty insurance industry saw its net underwriting gains increase to USD 5.4 billion in the first nine months of 2019 from USD 4.7 billion a year earlier. The industry’s surplus grew in every quarter of 2019 so far, reaching a new all-time-high value of USD 812.2 billion as of September 30, 2019, after USD 802.2 billion as of June 30, 2019 and USD 742.1 billion as of December 31, 2018.
  • In the first nine months of 2019, earned premiums grew by 4.7% to USD 463.2 billion, while LLAE (Losses and loss adjustment expenses) grew 5.5% to USD 327.1 billion; other underwriting expenses grew by 2.3% to USD 129.2 billion, and policyholders’ dividends increased to USD 1.6 billion from USD 1.5 billion a year earlier. As a result, the industry reported a USD 5.4 billion net underwriting gain, up from the USD 4.7 billion net underwriting gain for nine months in 2018.
  • Net written premiums rose to USD 481.3 billion in nine months of 2019 from USD 468.4 billion in nine months of 2018. Net written premium growth slowed to 2.7% from 11.4% for nine months in 2018.

Key Market Trends

RPA is Expected to Help in Quick Process

For insurance, RPA (robotic process automation) is described as the implementing software robots that can be customized for each device, without using code. These software robots support their real-life knowledge-workers with monotonous and repetitive tasks in insurance work, such as data input. Adoption of the RPA in the insurance has specific benefits, including faster claims processing, easier policy cancelation, simplified new business on-boarding, and easy transition.

Competitive Landscape

The report covers the major players operating in the property and casualty insurance market in the United States. The market is fragmented. The property and casualty markets continue to present "soft rates" (i.e., lower insurance premiums), and despite the recent increase in the federal fund rate, interest rates remain near historically low levels. The foregoing factors have adversely impacted revenue and profitability of P&C insurers, which may encourage consolidation among larger property and casualty insurers, due to diminished opportunities for the organic growth.
