UK SME Insurance: Market Dynamics and Opportunities 2019

Summary

The UK SME insurance market saw growth pick up significantly in 2018, rising from 1.4% in 2017 to 6.3% in 2018. This was due to a slight shift in the makeup of SME business numbers, an uptick in penetration across the majority of product lines, and increased weather-based claims (a consequence of Storm Emma and the Beast from the East) that pushed up premiums. However, SMEs endured a difficult year in 2018 due to a stagnant economy, which has seen consumer and small business confidence plummet. The sector is very closely linked to the economy, and consequently SMEs remain very concerned about Brexit and its potential implications going forward. The performance of this sector is critical for the prospects of the wider insurance market in the UK, as commercial and SME lines provide higher growth opportunities for insurers than personal business.

This report analyzes the UK SME insurance market. Economic factors including GDP growth, SME business confidence, and unemployment rates are explored in relation to the UK’s business landscape. Growth in the number of SMEs is explored by business size and industry. The SME market is discussed in relation to the uptake of commercial insurance. Finally, an estimate of the current and historic market size is provided, in addition to a five-year forecast.
