DUBLIN – (BUSINESS CHP) – woul The report “United Kingdom (UK) Insurance Aggregators 2022” was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s supply.
This report examines the ever-changing behavior of consumers when buying through price comparison sites. It identifies the most influential factors for customers in choosing a policy through this channel. The report examines the brand strategies and marketing approaches of the four leading sites. Key factors that will affect the market in the coming years are also highlighted.
Car and home insurance remain PCW’s most commonly purchased products. In 2021, the purchasing activity for these two products increased by 4.2 percentage points (pp) and 3.8 percentage points, respectively, to reach 35.2% and 28.6%. But PCW faces the challenge of maintaining these high buying frequencies, as FCA’s new pricing rules have a limited ability for suppliers to compete aggressively on price to win new business.
The reduction in premium prices on many of the lines discussed in this report has led to a reduced share of consumers using PCW to conduct pre-purchase research in 2021. However, when consumers have used PCW to conduct research, it is more likely to make a purchase through the site compared to 2020
PCWs are the third largest non-life insurance distribution channel, with 29.2% of respondents to the publisher’s 2021 Consumer Insurance Survey indicating that they purchased a policy through this channel.
PCW relies heavily on returning customers, which is one of the reasons why sites offer so many products. 62.2% of the respondents indicated that they chose the respective site because they had used it before.
The gap between quotes for home and car policies has narrowed significantly in 2022 as new FCA double pricing rules affect the ability of suppliers to undermine themselves and competitors to win new business.
