Majesco (NASDAQ:MJCO), a global leader of cloud insurance software
solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced the
release of new primary research report, Building
the Business Model for the Next Generation of Small-Medium Business
Leaders, based on its third annual survey of small-medium
business owners (SMBs) who make or influence insurance purchase
decisions for their companies. The report underscores shifts in
behaviors and expectations of the SMB market that demand insurers to
rethink their business to retain their customer base and capture growth
opportunities emerging for a growing and underserved market of over 30
million SMBs, which comprise over 99% of all businesses in the U.S.
“Embracement of digital technologies, new SMB market opportunities and
the generational shift and influence of Millennials and Gen Z are
rapidly redefining how insurers must engage and respond,” commented
Denise Garth, SVP of Strategic Marketing, Industry Relations and
Innovation at Majesco. “Over the next 7 years, Millennials and Gen Z
will become the dominant owners and influencers in the SMB market as
they launch new startups and take over the helm of existing businesses.
This new generation of SMB leaders use digital technologies in their
daily life and business which subsequently influence their behaviors and
expectations, requiring new risk products, services, and engagement
The acceleration of these market trends and digital technologies is
broadening SMB interest in new insurance products, services and business
models – putting insurers with innovative offerings in a first-mover
position to win market share and fast-track growth strategies. Some key
Up to 38% of Gen Z and Millennial SMBs purchased business insurance
online, within the 10-99 employees segment — doubling from last year.
From 37% to 48% of Gen Z and Millennial SMBs use connected devices
like security systems and cameras, thermostats and smoke detectors.
Nearly 35% of larger Gen Z and Millennial SMBs offer employees
discounts on life or health insurance if they use fitness trackers.
Up to 32% of SMBs purchased on-demand insurance to cover an event or
product for a specific period of time.
SMBs have strong interest in value-added services – nearly 75% across
SMBs have strong interest levels of nearly 60% in social and
peer-to-peer features and business models.
Among medium and larger Gen Z and Millennial SMBs, there is
exceptionally strong interest in products using new data sources for
pricing and underwriting risk.
Gen Z and Millennials would strongly consider purchasing insurance
from the “Tech Giants” including Amazon, Google, Apple, Netflix and
SMBs are interested in buying insurance from sources other than
agent/broker or company channels and they want to digitally manage
The increasing demand for and use of digital technologies, the emergence
of innovative new niche businesses, and the shift of the Gen Z and
Millennials as SMB owners will require innovative new insurance business
models, products, services and channels to capture the growth
opportunities. The crucial and strategic question for existing insurers
is: Are you ready to capture the tremendous growth opportunities in this
vast market — but in a new, innovative and digital way?
