2018 Insurance Market Outlook

What can you expect from the 2018 Insurance Market?


Will the natural disasters of last year be a driving force for 2018 insurance rates?

In 2017, there were three named windstorms, two major earthquakes in Mexico, and record-setting wildfires in California. Commercial property insurance rates are expected to increase as a result. Will those rate increases spill over into other coverage areas as insurers try to cover their losses?

In the 2018 Market Outlook, USI’s national practice leaders provide insights and perspectives on the importance of last year’s natural disasters and other pressures on the market. They offer their views on multiple factors, including market capacity, costs of coverage and how the increased use of underwriting data analytics impacts insured. Highlights include answers to questions such as:

  • What’s going to happen in the insurance market overall?
  • How does this translate into specific coverage areas?
  • Will we see a tightening of terms and conditions?

In addition, this year’s report includes expanded commentary and insights from USI vertical market leaders identifying key industry issues.
