Claims impact surprisingly low - except fires

Cefor released today its comprehensive hull claims trends as of 31 December 2021.


  • Suprisingly benign claims development - despite limited effect of the pandemic on vessel activity, an ageing world fleet, soaring inflation and more. 
  • There is one exception: Fires.
  • Container vessels
    • Extraordinary value increases on renewal
    • High demand but supply chain issues
    • Major loss impact stronger than in other segments
    • Fires! 

Besides standard hull trends for claims frequency, severity and vessel values, Cefor turned this year the spotlight on the following:

  • Fires 
  • Inflation
  • Claims frequency in the context of vessel activity

The Cefor statistics highlight recent hull claims trends and give an overview over the Nordic marine insurance market.
