UK Private Motor Sector Examined by Timetric in In-demand Research Study Published at

05 Jan 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Motorcycle insurance subcategory comprised just over 1% of the total vehicle insurance premiums; it declined by around 17% in 2013, following Ageas’ purchase of Groupama’s UK general insurance business.

In 2012, Groupama UK Insurance Company (GICL), famous for its focus on niche products, wrote USD 53.07 million in motorcycle premiums and led the subcategory with a share of just over 28%. As a result of the deal with Ageas, Groupama received USD 34.6 million in motorcycle premiums in 2013, a decrease by about 35% on the previous year’s result by the insurer.

Motorcycle insurance premiums declined at a 4.7% CAGR over the review period, reaching over USD 156.97 million in 2013. The subcategory remained steady during 2009-2012 in spite of a decreased number of motorcycle accidents and a reduction in motorcycle registrations. This was mainly owing to RSA’s exit from the country’s motorcycle insurance market in 2011, enabling its competitors to increase premium rates.
