DUBLIN, October 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jqv62b/pet_metrics) has announced the addition of the "Pet Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Pet Insurance in Selected Global Markets" report to their offering.
The report titled Pet Metrics: Consumer Approaches to Pet Insurance in Selected Global Markets offers detailed and up-to-date insights into the behaviour of pet owners in eight countries - Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and the US - in the context of pet insurance. Based on a primary survey of over 9,000 consumers across these countries carried out in the second quarter of 2014 breaking down between just under 2,000 in the US and just over 1,000 in each of the other seven, the research provides valuable data describing the extent to which owners of cats, dogs and other animals take out insurance for their pets.
In addition to calculating the percentage of pet owners in each country that buys pet insurance, the investigation also analyses the types of policy that they buy (i.e. stand-alone policies or cover packaged within household insurance or personal liability insurance), whether they hold cover for liabilities associated with pet ownership only or also for other risks (most notably veterinary expenses), which distribution channel and interface they use to take out stand-alone pet insurance and whether they buy cover within a week or a month of acquiring their pet or at a later stage.
Finally, the report measures the degree to which insured pet owners have used their cover to file a claim in the 12 months leading up to the survey and, if so, the reason for making the claim and whether the claim was accepted or not.
