Life Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches To Protection-Related Life Insurance In Europe

 

NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Life Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Protection-Related Life Insurance in Europe http://www.reportlinker.com/p01093070/Life-Protection-Metrics-Consumer-Approaches-to-Protection-Related-Life-Insurance-in-Europe.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Life_Insurance Based on a survey of over 6,000 consumers in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK, Life Protection Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Protection-Related Life Insurance in Europe offers detailed and unique insights into the behaviour of consumers in the context of risk life, critical illness, long-term income protection, short-term income protection and funeral expenses insurance.Comprising both an analytical report and a convenient data annexe in Excel format, the research covers the five aforementioned types of protection-related life insurance policy. In each country, it measures take-up rates for these types of insurance (differentiating between policies bought separately and cover acquired as a fixed component of employee benefits packages) and analyses the effect of gender, age, annual household income, employment status and existence of dependents on propensity to acquire cover. It also shows the distribution channels and interfaces used by respondents to take out these products, highlighting the behaviour of consumers in the key 18-34 age group which is most indicative of recent sales patterns. Distribution channels vary by type of protection-related life insurance but can include direct sales by insurance companies or their agents plus a variety of other options including sales via banks, financial advisers, insurance aggregators and retailers; distribution interfaces include face-to-face, online, inbound telephone, outbound telephone and postal sales. This study can be used in one or more of the following ways:- to understand the types of protection-related life insurance that are most popular in each country and the characteristics of consumers that buy them;- to appreciate whether insured respondents bought their cover as a result of an active decision to do so or whether they acquired it passively through a group scheme;- to evaluate the opportunities for distributing protection-related life insurance through alternative channels such as insurance aggregators or comparison sites: to what extent will consumers buy through these means?- to assess the apparent willingness of consumers to purchase these forms of cover online; given the types of device that online buyers report using, what is the scope for marketing more effectively to this audience?- to avoid the need to re-enter information yourself by making use of the Excel-based consumer data files that accompanies the PDF studies.0.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARYAcross all six countries, 25.3% of respondents hold two or more of the policy types researched... ... although 50.4% state that they do not hold any type of protection-related life insurance Annual income and the existence of dependents are key drivers of this market in all countries Consumers aged between 18 and 34 are more likely to use emerging distribution systems... ... including online acquisition via tablets or mobile phones (as opposed to regular computers) 1.0 INTRODUCTIONWhat is this report about? Rationale Definitions European consumer research Other international research reports 2.0 EUROPEAN OVERVIEWIntroduction Survey and sample structure Overview for five different types of protection-related life insurance On average, take-up rates are highest for risk life cover and lowest for short-term income protection Respondents in Poland are the most likely to report having acquired risk life insurance... ... while penetration of long-term income protection insurance peaks in France... ... and for funeral expenses insurance, acquisition rates are at their highest in Spain Across all six countries combined, just over 50% of respondents do not hold any kind of life protection cover The average number of policies held per respondent is lowest in Italy and the UK Across all age groups, annual household income is a key factor that drives propensity to acquire cover Those with dependent children or other relatives are also more likely to acquire these types of insurance Distribution channels for buying protection-related life insurance are least polarised in the UK Younger consumers are more likely to use alternative distribution channels than their older counterparts Across all six countries combined, over two thirds of policy sales were realised in a face-to-face setting Online sales are most likely to occur in the UK and least frequently reported in FranceYounger respondents in Germany are most likely to continue buying in a face-to-face setting An apparent migration in online sales to tablets and mobile phones has important marketing implications Overview for each type of protection-related life insurance Risk life insurance: across all six countries, over 10% of respondents are covered via their employer Critical illness insurance: insured respondents often acquire this type of cover as a feature of another policy Long-term income protection insurance: German consumers are most likely to buy this as a separate policy Short-term income protection insurance: penetration rates are especially weak in three countriesFuneral expenses insurance: penetration rates exceed 10% in all countries other than one 3.0 FRANCEOverview for five different types of protection-related life insurance Uptake of five different types of protection-related life insurance Number of protection-related life insurance policies held per respondent Influence of annual household income segmented by age group Influence of dependents segmented by age group Distribution channels used across all five types of protection-related life insurance segmented by age group Distribution interfaces used across all five types of protection-related life insurance segmented by age group Risk life insurance Uptake of risk life insurance Uptake of cover Segmentation by age group and household income Segmentation by employment status and gender Distribution of risk life insurance Distribution channels used for risk life insurance Distribution interfaces used for risk life insurance Critical illness insurance Uptake of critical illness insurance Uptake of cover Segmentation by age group and household income Segmentation by employment status and gender Distribution of critical illness insurance Distribution channels used for critical illness insurance Distribution interfaces used for critical illness insurance Long-term income protection insurance Uptake of long-term income protection insurance Uptake of cover Segmentation by age group and household income Segmentation by employment status and gender Distribution of long-term income protection insurance Distribution channels used for long-term income protection insurance Distribution interfaces used for long-term income protection insuranceShort-term income protection insurance Uptake of short-term income protection insurance Uptake of cover Segmentation by age group and household income Segmentation by employment status and gender Distribution of short-term income protection insurance Distribution channels used for short-term income protection insurance Distribution interfaces used for short-term income protection insurance Claims for short-term income protection insurance Frequency of and reasons for claims for short-term income protection Claims acceptance rates segmented by reason for claim Funeral expenses insurance Uptake of funeral expenses insurance Uptake of cover Segmentation by age group and household income Segmentation by employment status and gender Distribution of funeral expenses insurance Distribution channels used for funeral expenses insurance Distribution interfaces used for funeral expenses insurance
