Ridesharing Opportunities for Insurers

By 2020, ridesharing companies will generate US$36 billion in gross revenue from U.S. rideshares

London (Nov. 5, 2015) – Ridesharing companies, including Uber and Lyft, have enjoyed rapid expansion in the United States but still have plenty of room to grow. Aite Group expects that their revenue will expand almost fivefold between 2015 and 2020 as these companies benefit from an organic increase in cars-for-hire demand, take more passengers away from taxis and mass transit, and compete with personal cars.

Aite Group’s latest report, however, Ridesharing: Opportunities for Insurers, finds that many insurers are struggling to address this market.

“Ridesharing is exposing to what extent insurers have a limited understanding of the risk they are covering in auto insurance,” says Gwenn Bézard, research director with Aite Group. “Insurers should make a better use of the ridesharing opportunity to advance their usage-based insurance offering.”
