May 5, 2022

Driven by historic mortgage origination activity and substantial increase in home values, ALTA reported title insurance premium volume increased 35.9% during 2021 when compared to 2020.

The title insurance industry generated $26.2 billion in title insurance premiums during 2021 compared to $19.2 billion during 2020, according to ALTA’s Market Share Analysis.

Overall, total operating income for the industry was up 33.4%, operating expenses increased 32.0%, and loss and loss adjustment expenses were up 2.3 percent. In 2021, the industry paid more than $474.4 million in claims.

While the overall expense to purchase a home has increased significantly the past few years, the cost of title insurance coverage has decreased 7% since 2004. This means that for each dollar of premium a consumer purchases, they get an extra $26 in coverage compared to 2004.
