Premiums

Premiums By Line

Premiums can be accounted for in two major ways: net premiums written, which reflect premium amounts after deductions for reinsurance and direct premiums written, which are calculated before reinsurance transactions.

Personal vs. Commercial

The property/casualty (P/C) insurance industry is divided into two main segments: personal lines and commercial lines. Personal lines include coverage for individuals, mainly auto and homeowners. Commercial lines include the many kinds of insurance products designed for businesses. In 2017 private passenger auto insurance was the largest line of insurance, based on net premiums written, making up 40 percent of all P/C insurance (commercial and personal combined) and 73 percent of personal insurance. Homeowners multiple peril insurance is the second largest line. It accounted for 15 percent of total P/C insurance and 27 percent of personal lines. Other liability (coverages that protect against legal liability resulting from negligence, carelessness or failure to act) is the largest commercial line and third-largest P/C line. It accounted for 8 percent of all P/C net premiums and 18 percent of all commercial premiums.
