With key initiatives focused on the improvement of fuel economy - one of the solutions to help achieve energy independence, energy security, and a low carbon economy - usage based insurance is likely to help this achievement.  PAYD is predicted to reduce vehicle travel by a considerable degree effectively reducing emission and improving road safety. Frost & Sullivan believes that this may influence governments to give certain tax discounts for insurance companies and customers adopting this method.

Frost & Sullivan forecasts PAYD activations of about 300,000 in 2015, with roughly 40 - 50 per cent of the existing pilot projects expected to launch commercially by 2012. Usage-based insurance fundamentals provide huge incentives to users for altering their driving pattern positively (thereby reducing the risk of accidents). Fewer accidents mean fewer claims and a direct impact on company profits. Frost & Sullivan believes that this is a win-win situation and companies can make use of this effectively. Moreover, PAYD enables insurers to calculate risk more accurately, help to price the service aggressively.

"PAYD insurance is a key addition to the telematics package that has the potential to increase savings on insurance premiums," notes Kyu-min Oh, Frost & Sullivan's Automotive & Transportation Consultant. "Frost & Sullivan believes that an integrated telematics system integrating features such as stolen vehicle tracking, e Call, advanced driver assistance systems and remote vehicle diagnostics will add value to all types of drivers."
