UK Household Insurance: Competitor Dynamics

Summary
The UK household insurance market is a highly competitive market. Insurers that can control their costs are able to deliver profitable books even in soft market conditions, with rates reducing or remaining flat. The number of insurers active in this market makes it hard to generate rate increases on top of the increase in insurance tax. However, pricing is generally at a level that is unable to sustain an unusual weather event such as the floods of 2007, so insurers need to be clever about the risks they take on.

Key Findings
- The top 10 insurers account for 73.6% of the market.

- Achieving growth with soft rates has been challenging for the top insurers.

- Lloyds Banking Group became the market leader in 2015, replacing Direct Line Group.

- Aviva has launched the Flood Re scheme for homeowners affected by floods.
