Connected Cars in Insurance – Thematic Research

This report provides an in-depth analysis of the connected cars in insurance theme. It provides a thorough overview of the space, covering market size and claims, contextual and economic factors, regulations, and opportunities. The report also explores how the development of connected cars will impact the insurance value chain.


As connected cars have automatic data-generating capabilities, vehicle manufacturers will play an increased role in the distribution of motor insurance. Insurers will strike partnerships with manufacturers in order to ensure they have access to consumers’ driving data.

While there are insurers and insurtechs that are pushing efforts to create more personalized products in private motor, insurtechs are the ones that have adapted telematics to create usage-based insurance services to price premiums. Meanwhile, insurers have utilized telematics to mitigate aspects of risks related to claims and reward customers for “good” driving behavior.

Insurers that do not gain experience in connected vehicle data risk falling behind their rivals. Connected vehicles produce a massive amount of data, and insurers must build their capabilities and capacity to manage it.
