Rise in demand for gadget insurance on events such as mechanical breakdown, liquid damage, theft, and unauthorized usage is propelling the growth of the Europe gadget insurance market. In addition, the insurance companies are increasingly providing full coverage with advanced services to the customers in their gadget insurance portfolio.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of accidents, in terms of accidental damage from handling and loss protection, which resulted in an increase in the need for gadget insurance. For instance, New Scientist Ltd., a magazine covering all aspects of science and technology, stated that since April 2019, there have been more than 300 cases in the UK of attacks in which people try to fraudulently obtain codes that would let them gain control of someone’s mobile number. Thus, increase in incidents of accidental damage, phone thefts, virus infection and device malfunction in Europe is driving the growth of the Europe gadget insurance market.  

Rise in Sale of Mobile Phones and Wearables 

The protection for gadgets has increased at a faster rate in the market with increase in usage of smart phones, wearables and other gadgets.

  • One laptop is stolen every 53 seconds.
  • 70 million smartphones are lost each year, with only 7% recovered.
  • 4.3% of company-issued smartphones are lost or stolen every year.
  • 80% of the cost of a lost laptop is from data breach.
  • 52% of devices are stolen from the office/workplace, and 24%from conferences.

Furthermore, gadget insurance for these goods is continuously evolving and is expected to maintain the dominance during the forecast period. In addition, electronic item makers continue to attract customers during the festive season. For instance, in Europe, the festive season is considered during Christmas; hence, there is a continuous rise in use and sale of smartphones, cameras, PCs and other gadgets, which fuels the Europe gadget insurance market growth.

Increased Awareness For Gadget Insurance Among Europeans

Many consumers’ electronic products have a hefty price tag associated with them at the time of purchase; hence, awareness for gadget insurance for these products has increased tremendously.
