Market Share Report

The Market Share Report is released annually. The most current release is the 2020 report (based on 2019 data).

To prepare for these annual market share reviews with the first one issued in the mid-1990s the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America each year reviews property/casualty insurance premium data provided by A.M. Best Company. In comparing these numbers along with other data, research reports and anecdotal information gathered during the year we typically are impressed with the creative, aggressive actions of some independent agencies (IAs) and their carrier partners to retain and grow market share in one or more lines of business. And some IA carriers post impressive expense ratios relative to direct channels, debunking the myth that it must cost more to distribute through independent agents.
