E-Learning Market Segmentation

The research report includes a detailed segmentation of the market by delivery mode, learning mode, type, end-user, and geography. Easy accessibility and cost-effectiveness are the key factors responsible for high shares of the packaged content segment. However, the learning management system (LMS) segment is growing at a faster CAGR. This mode of learning is becoming widespread, especially among corporates, as they are adopting SaaS-based LMS to train employees for career enhancements. Other essential learning models such as video-based learning, gamification, and virtual classrooms are increasing their shares slowly due to their high engagement levels and perceived effectiveness.

The growing awareness among work professionals to enhance skill-based proficiency has immensely contributed to the growth of the self-paced learning mode segment. Another key factor driving the segment is the high preference for continuous learning to scale new career opportunities among people. Learners are increasingly opting for course, which help them to grow aptitude and career prospects. Russia and the UK have emerged as the major consumers of self-paced e-learning in the last decade.North America dominated the e-learning market by learning mode in 2018 and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.

The training segment captured around three-fourths of the market in 2018. The requirement to train individuals/employees to perform specialized tasks effectively is a significant factor for the growth of the training segment. However, in terms of CAGR, testing services are estimated to outgrow training services. Ease-of-use, content accuracy, instructional integrity, user satisfaction, and technological soundness are the factors ensuring the growth of the test services market.

Talent enhancement and employee retention have contributed significantly to the growth of the corporate segment, which dominates the e-learning market globally. However, K-12, higher education, and vocational segments are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Further, gamification, blended learning, and m-learning are some of the key trends characterizing vocational learners. There has been a high demand for diverse content from the segment, ranging from language learning to functional subjects such as web development, engineering, sciences, and commerce and finance.

Key Vendor Analysis

The global e-learning market is primarily driven by leading vendors that occupy large market shares. The introduction of several modules of LMS, packaged content, and amplified learning courses will help prominent players to attract a broad customer base from different end-user segments. The launch of freemium offerings with attractive short-term subscription pricing and the increasing investment for product development are offering new opportunities for new entrants in the market.

Further, setting the right price to effectively gauge and capture the marginal utility of the potential consumer will be a major strategic challenge for vendors in the global e-learning market in the coming years.
