NAPHIA Announces Pet Insurance Market Reaches $1.42B in North America


Boise, ID, June 12, 2019 --(PR.com)-- North America’s pet health insurance sector reached another major milestone, with total premium volume in North America reaching $1.42 billion USD by the end of 2018, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA).

Industry data also showed that 2.43 million pets were insured in North America over the same period. In 2018, the U.S. saw an increase of 18% to 2.16 million pets. In Canada growth of 10.9% resulted in 277,000 pets insured in 2018.

Since 2013 the association has monitored industry trends based on data gathered independently from North American pet insurance companies. The annual State of the Industry report is compiled by Willis Towers Watson, who collects, aggregates and validates the data.

NAPHIA Executive Director Kristen Lynch said that an increasingly significant portion of pet insurance policies in force – 93% – are for accident and illness coverage. In the U.S. this figure is higher, representing 98% of coverage.

Rick Faucher, President of NAPHIA’s Board of Directors, and President of the Pet Health Division for The IHC Group, noted that the industry continues to see tremendous growth and interest since it began tracking and publishing its key benchmarks.

“Beyond what our industry data tells us, there are many other indicators that pet health insurance is a robust line of insurance,” said Faucher. “There have been several acquisitions of pet insurance companies this year, and we’re seeing a number of new market entrants.”
