(Before It's News)

Soft market conditions endure in a UK household insurance market with high levels of competition and capacity, and a continuing shift in customer buying habits. Despite this, the market continues along a profitable path for as long as it can rely on relatively benign weather conditions.

Key Findings
- UK household insurance gross written premium (GWP) fell by 3.8% in 2015, hampered by tough underwriting conditions in a competitive market. Home insurance premium rates are currently reported to be largely flat to slightly negative across the UK as a whole.

- In spite of winter 2015 storms, home insurance remains profitable, with a 94.6% combined operating ratio (COR) in 2015, compared to 93.4% in 2014. The sector has been propped up by several benign weather years and has benefited from reserve releases. However, concerns remain over pricing for severe weather events.

- The home insurance expense ratio fell in 2015 (-1.6 percentage points [pp]) as a result of a drop in commission ratio and efficiency improvements. However, at 40.6% it remains relatively high compared to motor, and has been adversely impacted in H1 2016 by the introduction of Flood Re.

- The rise of ‘Generation Rent’ presents a shifting landscape that is dampening overall market growth, and is presenting home insurers with a customer demographic that has different needs and preferences not necessarily catered to effectively by current services. Private renters now account for around 20% of dwellings, up from just over 10% a decade ago.
