Top Impacting Factors

Rise in Number of Real Estate Transactions

The rise in the number of real estate transactions including property sales, purchases, refinances, and investments, drives the demand for title insurance. As more properties change ownership or develop, the need for title insurance to protect against potential title defects and disputes grows. In addition, many lenders require title insurance as a condition for approving mortgage loans. As more people seek mortgage financing for their real estate purchases, the demand for lender's title insurance also grows. Lenders use title insurance to safeguard their interests and ensure that their collateral (the property) has a clear title. For instance, in October 2021, Realogy Holdings Corp collaborated with Centerbridge to accelerate growth of title insurance underwriter and enabled Realogy to invest in integration of core real estate transaction services across franchise, brokerage, title settlement and escrow, and mortgage. These development strategies are significantly contributing to the huge potential for the growth and development of the title insurance market.

Increase in Digital Influence  

The digital explosion in the insurance sector is driven by the need to build direct bridges with the end consumer through the smartphone in order to survive in an era where the customer is using the phone as the primary medium of communication. The trend has been fast paced driven partly due to the large base of phone users and partly due to the lesser weight of legacy systems. Digitalization drives the growth of the market share and profitability for insurers. It also urges insurers to apply digital technologies in new ways and offer tangible value to customers. Moreover, it presents the possible opportunities for digitalization for insurers & customers as the adoption of digital solutions for insurance policies will keep increasing in the future. Moreover, these are the factors influencing the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

Restraints

Lack of Awareness Among Customers

Lack of awareness among customers regarding insurance offers and benefits is hindering the growth of the market. In addition, concerns regarding the security of data and payments are rising due to the increasing amount of data being generated and online transactions being executed in the insurance industry. For instance, in November 2021, according to The Insurance Bureau of Canada, due to a lack of insurance awareness, around 10% Canadian homes are currently uninsurable due to flooding. Furthermore, many service providers have limited knowledge and understanding of the rights of people with their health needs and have inadequate training and professional development about requirements, which is the major factor hampering the growth of the market.

Increase in Security Concerns

Security and privacy of online insurance coverage policies may provide companies with protection from losses resulting from a data breach or the loss of electronically stored confidential information. In addition, security and privacy of online insurance coverage policies can protect companies from losses that result from data breaches or confidential data loss. Purchasing security and privacy insurance coverage can help a business recover from the financial and regulatory burdens that security breaches can create. Moreover, cyber and privacy insurance is a type of insurance coverage that primarily applies to businesses that run secure computer networks as part of their business. Cyber and privacy insurance covers businesses against losses stemming from computer hacks, which can affect ongoing operations and entail legal and regulatory ramifications.

Opportunities

Increase in Adoption of Digital Solutions

The digital transformation solutions in the online insurance industry have led to efficiencies in its operations through Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and predictive analysis. Claims can now be processed through the ease of a mobile app instantly, which has helped insurers reduce the time spent on policy writing.

Digitization in the insurance industry is beginning to gather pace and is expected to be one of the mainstays of title insurance industry.
