The study, which is based on National Association of Insurance Commissioners statutory filings, found that while the number of insurers offering cyber increased to 184 from 170, premiums grew by 10.3%, to $2.03 billion.

"Yet the markedly reduced growth in 2018 gives pause and causes us to question whether the cyber insurance industry can live up to the aggressive growth projections that have been made," said the report.
The market became more concentrated in 2018, with the top five cyber insurers accounting for 53% of direct written premiums, up from 51% in 2017, and the top 10 accounting for 70%, vs. 69% in 2017.
