  • Automated technology will bring both new challenges and new opportunities for insurers. Although insurers may face the challenges associated with a shrinking market where manufacturers absorb more liability risk, insurers also have new opportunities. For example, such opportunities include new and innovative ways to develop joint partnerships, like Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp’s and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance’s joint development of a car insurance product. In addition, insurers can take advantage of new technology innovations and the increased use of sophisticated telematics to help underwrite auto policies.
