NEW YORK, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Australia and New Zealand - Car theft and insurance

Australia and New Zealand ranked 5th and 3rd highest vehicle theft risk countries out of 20 key global markets.

Australia and New Zealand represent high theft risk markets. The insurance industries in these markets, however, have started taking steps to reduce vehicle theft through public awareness campaigns and discounts for higher security fitment. New Zealand is now starting to follow its Australian counterparts' lead by considering mandatory immobiliser fitment.

With the onset of potential new legislation and as a part of SBD's ongoing reporting on global vehicle theft, this new report explains the insurance criteria, describes future developments in legislation and provides a general overview of the situation related to vehicle theft in Australia and New Zealand.

This report will enable you to:

  • Plan vehicle security specifications for these markets
  • Offer security systems which are compliant with latest legislation and insurance criteria
  • Understand how current activities within government and insurance will have an impact on the future requirements for these markets
