As per the report, ASEAN Automotive Insurance Marketpublished by Astute Analytica, the market for Auto Insurance in ASEAN countries is estimated to add an opportunity of US$ 4,774.1 Million over the forecast period 2021-2027.

The automotive insurance or motor insurance market in the ASEAN region is forecast to grow at a compounded rate of 5.6% during the forecast period. The research study analyzes the impact of some of the major market determinants such as a rise in awareness among vehicle end-users related to vehicle safety and benefits of automotive insurance, an increase of accidents, and a rise in the number of vehicle thefts, among others. Availability of multiple insurance policies and convenience to compare the policies from different vendors through an online marketplace has driven more users to opt for vehicle insurance covers. However, increasing prices of automotive insurance policies for a comprehensive cover and challenges in submitting a claim are expected to slow down customer transition. Cyber-attacks risk also restrict customers to leverage the full benefit of online service delivery models. All these factors under the influence of macro-economic indicators are expected to moderately boost the ASEAN automotive insurance market growth.
