Who needs insurance telematics, and how effective are technologies for service end-users? What is the future of insuring unmanned cars and Car Sharing service, new opportunities of insurance telematics using V2I (Vehicle to Infrastructure) technology and many other topics will be discussed by leading market experts at the International Conference “Smart Insurance”, which will take place in Moscow at the end of February.
J'son & PartnersConsulting predicts the market’s boom. According their forecast, by 2020 the total value of smart insurance market in Russia will be around 3.3 mln smart policies and the penetration level of smart auto insurance will reach 52%.
“In all developed and actively developing countries of North America and Europe over 13 mln. Drivers use insurance telematics. The American market almost entirely shifted or is close to shifting to technologies using smartphones in telematics systems. Europe, on the contrary, actively uses on-board devices. But, in any case, the penetration into the general auto insurance portfolio overseas in on the high level and is over 10%,” Alexei Kasatkin, Commercial Director of R-Telematica, comments. “At the beginning of 20017 12 Russian insurance companies have policies with telematics in their portfolios. Another 6 insurance companies are in search for solutions and model of applying technologies. According to different estimates, the number of ‘Smart KASKO’ agreements made is 35-55 thous. pieces. In spite of zero dynamics in 2016, the ‘reviving’ KASKO market and appearing of innovative, low-cost technologies give the opportunity to forecast over 100% sales growth of ‘Smart KASKO’ policies in 2017-2018”.
A couple of years ago a number of Russian insurance companies, among which are Intouch and AlfaStrakhovanie, launched successful pilot projects on smart insurance. In particular, they started installing navigation and communication equipment to collect data about insurant driving styles in exchange for discounts and bonuses. For instance, in AlfaStrakhovanie ‘Very Smart KASKO’ service the drivers, following accurate driving requirements, receive up to 55% discount on ‘AlfaBusiness’ KASKO policy. Car driving parameters are tracked by telematics devices installed in a vehicle free of charge. The owners of under-7-years-old foreign cars can join the new program. Intouch offers ‘Smart Insurance’ service, in which the careful and accurate motorists obeying traffic regulations have an opportunity to save up to 20% on KASKO policy cost.
As experience has shown, the services are in demand among motorists. And the market is expected to grow rapidly over the next several years. For instance, the Development Director, T-One Group JSC, Igor Kheresh points out that the market is absolutely perspective, as more than ever people want to save money, including on motor insurance types. “The insurance telematics helps us in it, as with its help we can significantly cut our expenses for automobile insurance. Furthermore, at the end of pilot projects it became obvious that the fraud level could be significantly decreased thanks to insurance telematics technologies, and this one of the most important arguments in favor of telematics. The result is that the insurance companies make profits on fraud reduction. The service users save money on expense for policy purchase, receiving discounts for their good driving. The state reduces the number of people killed or injured in road traffic accidents. The only thing left for an insurance company is to choose a qualitative operator, whose data will be always valid and trustworthy,” he says.
Now there are different insurance telematics products and services partially available on the market and actively developing. For example, Europrotocol services, RTA detection and reconstruction, mile-based auto Insurance, Pay-as-you-Drive, Pay-How-You-Drive, Manage-How-You-Drive are popular. In Europe Pay-As-You-Drive has been working since 2002. And in the USA it is in common use. A driver, ‘being watched’, becomes more accurate. The vehicle telematics has many other useful functions: satellite alarm system, or, for example, emergency service informing, remote diagnostics, location monitoring and others.
Alexei Smyatskih, CEO of SpaceTeam Navigation Holding, thinks that the smart insurance market development can be additionally stimulated with the use of commercial services based on GAIS ERA-GLONASS emergency service call devices, which have to be mandatory installed into all new cars starting 2017. And this is minimum 1.5 mln. equipped cars a year. “An ERA-GLONASS device has all necessary components to implement the ‘smart’ insurance functional. The only issue is to set equipment and to organize an relevant infrastructure of receiving and processing data from vehicles,” Smyatskih explains.
Pavel Bunin, Director of Services Development on Insurance, Leasing and Financial Markets, GLONASS JSC, forecasts the total growth in the market on 5-10% in 2017 and thinks that in the years ahead the telematics will command a significant part in retail insurance. He thinks that the main market tendency is a combination of different functions in one device, for example, functions of emergency service call device, on-board insurance telematics device, concierge-service and other services.
Along with that the market experts think that the mass introduction of services is stopped by legislation and jurisprudence imperfection, absence of a single complex approach, weak client loyalty and trust to new technologies.
For today the essential task of ‘Smart Insurance’ in Russia is to bring the market to unified standards. It includes creating a single database of drivers, unifying scoring parameters, choosing interesting business-models and many other things. The goal of the forthcoming conference is to discuss important issues and proposals for the successful and wide-scale introduction of ‘smart’ insurance services in Russia.
