The OBD-II technology held a major market share of around 50% in 2017 and is projected to dominate the usage-based insurance (UBI) market between 2018 and 2024. Earlier OBD devices were used to read fault codes and parameters associated with the malfunctioning of the emission systems. But with the growing trend of IoT, OBD dongles embedded with sensors are being used to detect hard breaks and accelerations, thus determining driving patterns, fuel efficiency, and road conditions. As these dongles are easy to install, they are being widely used for tracking the vehicles systems and the driving pattern.

North America is projected to hold a dominant share of around 38% in the usage-based insurance (UBI) market by 2024. The market growth is driven by an increase in the use of telematics systems that are equipped with features such as vehicle tracking systems, remote theft alarm, and driver assistance systems. The rising incidents of vehicle theft in this region are expected to augment the usage-based insurance (UBI) market growth. The adoption of telematics-driven UBI helps insurers to improve profitability and reduce fraudulent claims. A massive growth of the connected cars market and an increased use of smartphone telematics for monitoring driver behavior will accelerate the usage-based insurance (UBI) market growth over the forecast timeline.
