(PRWEB) May 13, 2011
According to a new report from FC Business Intelligence, the market is projected to expand rapidly from $50 million in sales of UBI devices in 2011 to approx. $2.6 billion by 2015.
There are already several companies leading the charge towards mass – market telematics: Progressive’s Snapshot(SM) has been approved in 32 states, GMAC’s Mileage Discount is available in 35 states and Allstate are aspiring to live up to their name.
Furthermore, the majority of other major insurers are running extensive pilot schemes. The court cases are still rumbling on, but now many states are actively encouraging Usage Based Insurance (UBI) policies and legislative barriers are finally beginning to fall.
