Program Business Revenue Topped $53.8 Billion in 2020

The 2021 TMPAA State of Program Business Study is the eighth in a series of surveys that started in 2011. The 2021 report presents 2020 business results. Since the TMPAA did not conduct the survey in 2020 for 2019 results, most of the comparative analysis in this survey report focuses on changes between 2018 and 2020.

The TMPAA released the results of its State of Program Business Study at the 21st Annual Summit in Scottsdale. The survey documents the size of program business and tracks various trends that shape the market. The survey has documented the rapid growth of the program business insurance market. From $17.5 billion in commercial insurance revenue in 2010, program business has grown to $53.8 billion in 2020. It continues to outpace the total property/casualty industry, which grew commercial lines premiums by only 9.33 percent over the same period of time. The study reflects the views of 144 program administrators representing 1,041 programs and 51 insurers representing 1,322 programs.
