UK Employers' Liability Insurance: Market Dynamics and Opportunities 2019

Summary

The UK employers' liability insurance market is quite volatile. The market is more closely aligned to developments in the UK economy compared to other products. While uncertainty around Brexit has diminished, trade negotiations over the next year will determine the impact leaving the EU will have on the UK's economy.

There are also other factors - including the negative Ogden rate and the continuing growth of e-commerce and the gig economy - that will affect the employers' liability market going forward. While the market contracted in 2018, underwriting has never been more profitable, partly due to a sustained reduction in workplace injuries. The market will continue to fluctuate over the next five years, but will see marginal growth by the end of 2023. However, much of this estimate stems from a favorable outcome to the Brexit negotiations. If a trade agreement cannot be agreed upon between the government and the EU, the UK economy and the employers' liability market will likely suffer as a result.

This report tracks the health and shape of the employers' liability market - taking into account market size, profitability and performance ratios, and the claims environment. Bringing this to life, the context of the UK's economic growth, business landscape, and the post-Brexit environment are all taken into consideration to build a full picture of this space. Key announcements, shifts in the market, and likely future changes are analyzed for impact across all relevant stakeholders.

Scope
