Usage Insurance Consumption Analysis 2016-2020 vs Market Outlook 2021 to 2031

According to Fact.MR- market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global usage insurance industry grew to a value of approximately US$ 30 Bn by 2020. As conventional automotive insurance experiences significant constraints, vehicle owners are increasingly relying on usage-based insurance to optimize costs.

Telematics is used in insurance and can either be pre-installed in the vehicle or can be added with a plug-in device. Based on these trends, Fact.MR expects that the global market will surge at a CAGR of over 17% from 2021 to 2031.
