The Thailand Motor Insurance Market size in terms of direct written premiums value is expected to grow from Thai 187.03 billion in 2024 to Thai 254.91 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 6.39% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Thai Motor Insurance is one of the largest business line and accounts in the country. Overall motor insurance's direct premium holds a 60% share in the overall non-life insurance segment. The number of policies has increased and amounts to 25 billion in compulsory motor insurance and 8 billion in voluntary motor insurance.

The impact of the pandemic was most pronounced in the motor insurance business line, which reported for more than 50% of the general insurance premium in 2021. Thailand, which is a major hub for automotive manufacturing, registered a decline in domestic sales and exports due to supply chain interruptions and subdued domestic needs.

Corresponding to the Federation of Thai Industries, the total passenger and commercial vehicle sales from January-November 2020 witnessed over a 25% decline as compared to the same period the prior year. Vehicle sales are expected to gradually rise over the near term, reflecting an improvement in customer demand, which is expected to support the growth in motor insurers' premiums.

Increasing Production and Sales of Electric Vehicles is Expected to Drive the Market

With the Thai government's current zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) plan, Thailand's demand growth for EVs is projected to increase to 402k in 2025, rising to 2m in 2030, and 6.4m by 2035. The total of new commercial vehicles for the e-truck and e-bus categories is expected to grow from 31k in 2025 to 430k in 2035.

In its most recent move to approve the comprehensive EV promotion plan by the National Electric Vehicle Policy Committee (NEVPC), the Thai government has clearly signaled that Thailand is dedicated to fully converting the country's existing internal combustion engine (ICE)-based automotive industry into an EV industry. According to the Electric Vehicle Association of Thailand (EVAT), Thailand is now at the forefront of its ASEAN peers in transitioning its automotive industry from an ICE-based industry to an EV industry. Increased demand for EV is set to be the main driving force for the motor insurance industry.
