These segmentations are provided not only for each of the 13 aforementioned professional categories but also by annual fee income or turnover band in order to show the potential and actual market value in the US attributable to the largest and smallest professional enterprises.

In addition, four further segmentations of the market value in 2019 are also given: between business dealt with by domestic underwriters and that placed with non-domestic underwriters; between new business and renewals; between primary layer and excess layer business; and between specialty and non-specialty business.

Moreover, on the basis of a survey of leading brokers of professional indemnity cover in the US, the report identifies the underwriters of this type of insurance that are used most frequently and provides estimates for the market shares by premium income of leading underwriters in 2019 for all forms of professional indemnity cover combined expressed as a percentage range (e.g. 5.0% to 7.5%).

Finally, the study identifies affinity schemes for professional indemnity insurance in the US set up between professional / trade associations and brokers or underwriters of this type of cover (based on a survey of 450 such associations), highlights other distribution channels used to sell this form of insurance (e.g. brokers, direct sales, online aggregators, other affinity partners) and discusses key issues associated with the market including the increasing availability of cyber cover within professional indemnity policies.
