Before selecting an appropriate method to track information, an insurance provider needs to make several considerations. Most of the insurance providers use on-board diagnostics systems, i.e.

OBDII (black boxes or dongles). However, other providers offer smartphone apps that are easier to access and economical.

Comparatively very few of the insurance providers offer both the hardware and smartphone app.

Further, the smartphones segment is also expected to gain market share during the forecast period. . Smartphone apps are suitable for insurance providers that are targeting particular groups hence, acquiring niche market share.

As their UBI business grows, insurance providers may invest in OBDII and offer this on a long-term basis to specific customer segments.
