The Global Commercial Auto Insurance Market size was valued at US$ 39.66 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at US$ 61.33 billion by 2026 and increase at a CAGR of 9.90% during 2021 and 2026.
Commercial vehicle insurance is a policy that provides physical damage and liability protection for amounts, situations, and usage that are not covered by a personal auto insurance policy. The expansion of the Global Commercial Auto Insurance Market is primarily due to increased demand and sales of automobiles due to rising per capita income in developing countries. Furthermore, rules and regulations enacted by governments worldwide requiring the purchase of insurance coverage when acquiring a new commercial vehicle have aided the market's growth. New insurance product launches and developments are also projected to contribute to the market's growth.
Market Drivers & Restraints
Increased demand among businesses for insurance plans to safeguard them from unforeseen losses. Commercial insurance protects businesses from lawsuits, liability, and workers' compensation claims. The commercial insurance industry is predicted to rise due to increased competition among small and medium-sized companies and the availability of many retail insurance providers. A physical damage policy and liability coverage for quantities, situations, and usage not covered by a personal auto insurance policy is known as commercial vehicle insurance. It provides consumers with final protection against any physical damage caused by commercial vehicle theft or traffic collisions such as accidents, weather, natural disasters, and so on. In addition, the increased use of telematics devices in the retail, construction, and healthcare industries and the adoption of advanced technology in commercial insurance such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analysis are expected to create a lucrative commercial insurance market growth opportunity. Furthermore, different add-on coverages and perks given by prominent insurance companies, such as zero depreciation insurance, discounts, and so on, are likely to create profitable chances in this industry. Aside from that, the increase in the number of accidents and damages will propel the market forward.
The transition from traditional vehicle insurance to connected vehicle insurance has presented a significant challenge in the digitization of small commercial insurers. In addition, according to S&P Global, car and truck insurers are confronting rising claims costs with road accidents returning to pre-covid levels across the globe. These are some of the factors responsible for hindering the global commercial auto insurance market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Commercial Auto Insurance Market
The commercial insurance business is suffering as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. Business interruption, digitalized underwriting, claims, and administrative processes, as well as a massive move to remote working across multiple sector verticals, have all become challenging issues for commercial insurers in the market. In addition, because the pandemic has affected all sector verticals, the number of fraudulent claim attempts has increased. The lack of IT infrastructure connecting distribution channels has hampered the expansion of the commercial insurance market. Fortunately, the introduction of telematics solutions has propelled connected auto insurance to revolutionize commercial vehicle insurance.
