Now, the invention and development of the Car gradually make people’s lives changed dramatically, convenient transportation improving people’s travelWays to make people’s lives continues to increase. Car not only bring people to a wealth of material, it also brings to the spiritual needs of the people, promote people’s spiritual civilization, enrich people’s lives.

and trends in many Asian countries Is the same as in the US non-life insurance market, the market position and gradually increase Car insurance, currently accounts for about 70% of the market share, rapid Car sales growth Is the main driving force – the growing number of household income and household wealth increased so buy a Car rose sharply, buyers are mostly those living in large cities. Even if the number of Cars on the roads Is increasing, but from a national perspective, the number of Car ownership ratio Is still relatively small. So, before U.S.’s Automobile industry market Is not saturated, it Is still very broad prospects for development, Is also a great room for growth. As a result, U.S.’s Auto insurance industry also has plenty of room for development. Prospective Industry Research Institute released the “US Auto insurance industry Strategic Planning Market Outlook and Investment AnalysIs Report” shows that Car insurance market share of each insurance company has always been contested. Since entering the 21st century, U.S.’s Auto industry development momentum Is good, naturally the Car insurance market has also had a favorable impact.

Third, U.S.’s Automobile insurance problems

(a) insurance awareness and insure psychological problems

on U.S.’s current Auto insurance situation, the national insurance awareness Is relatively shallow, motor vehicle insurance rate of long-term downturn trend. Because relatively few types of Car insurance, insurance companies lower service quality, promote small influence on Car insurance, Car insurance, people who know less well understood factors seriously affect people’s consciousness insured and insured psychology. Especially in rural areas, about 40% of the vehicle Is not insured any Car insurance coverage, coupled with the poor state of rural roads, traffic accidents have occurred, once the accident, dIsaster once again because the light caused by poverty, serious cases are bankrupt.

(b) motor insurance business channel complex, high transaction costs

Is now our Automobile insurance industry chain mainly includes the following aspects: property insurance companies, Auto insurance user, upstream channels Automobile manufacturers and finance companies, downstream channels of professional agents and industry service providers and others.

supply Auto insurance insurance company whose main source of business Is directly under the exhibition industry, accounting for about 50%, most of the remaining are derived from the insurance intermediary, divided into professional and industry dIstribution facilities and dIstribution mechanIsm. Here the main dIstribution agencies and industry analysIs of the impact of the current dIstribution agencies and industry consIsts mainly 4S shops and repair shops, some 4S shops charge high commIssions to insurance companies, and even once as high as 30% -50%. In addition, insurance companies tend to protect more directly under the exhibition industry, many fee subsidies, thus leading insurance intermediary of its dIscontent rIsing, but the insurance company has said he expects large businesses from the insurance. So insurance companies and intermediaries has been unable to form a reasonable mutual cooperation and coordination, a direct result of confusion channels, imperfect cooperation and management, higher transaction costs and other status quo.

(c) Auto insurance claims loophole big problem payout rate of

higher premiums, higher claims Is U.S.’s Automobile insurance industry one of the features. The loss ratio Is too high there are four main reasons: (1) the insurance company’s business staff strict, customer requirements are too lax underwriting conditions. (2) supervIsion system Is not perfect, the lack of management in terms of the damage, pricing, etc., resulting in high cost of the insurance payment. (3) intense competition has led to high loss ratio attract policyholders. (4) insurance fraud and fraud, increase the compensation cost. Issue
