Sales Analysis of e-Learning Apps (2017-2021) Vs. Industry Outlook (2022-2032)

In an era where smartphones and personal computers are almost universally utilized, the importance of these devices and their associated applications (apps) is growing. The e-Learning market continues to develop, expand, and evolve across the world.

Increased government and institution expenditure on e-Learning programs, growing integration of e-Learning in various markets around the world, tools that support e-Learning, new trends in emerging technologies, and growing importance of social learning as a top learning and development priority are all evidence of the higher adoption of e-Learning platforms.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Surging utilization of e-Learning in education sector, to positively impact e-Learning applications market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Asia Pacific market anticipated to witness high growth due to rising demand for e-Learning apps from educational institutions, coupled with favorable government initiatives.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): With high Internet penetration and as the Gen Y (millennial) and Gen Z population is on the rise, the need for a more e-Learning experience will increase exponentially with these kinds of tools and modalities extremely popular among these generations.

During the 2017-2021 historical years, the global digital learning apps market registered a CAGR of 25.4%, and according to the analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to witness high growth at 7.1% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

E-Learning apps market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of learning type and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the learning type segment, synchronous online learning dominated the market with 18.5% market share at the end of 2021.

How is Digital Learning Apps Market Growth Being Complemented?

“Surging Global Internet & Smart Device Penetration”

The global smart connected devices market is being driven by increased global demand for laptops, tablets, smartphones, and bring-your-own-devices, as well as the development of high-speed network connections across regions.

Technological developments in wireless connectivity, such as general packet radio service (GPRS) & Wi-Fi, and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX), are projected to drive the demand for smart connected devices.

All of this will invariably contribute to the e-Learning app industry's growth prospects.

“Micro e-Learning & Game-based e-Learning: The Way Ahead”

Bite-sized learning is another term for micro e-Learning. It's a quick learning nugget (three to five minutes or less) that's tailored to a certain learning goal. While it can be used for formal education, it is primarily utilized for informal education. Because of their shortness and accessibility across several devices (including smartphones, tablets, desktops, and laptops), they're great for just-in-time learning via an app.

Gamification also makes learning more enjoyable and inspiring. Gamification in e-Learning refers to the use of game mechanics and theory in non-game environments to engage users in problem-solving. Gamification's major purpose is to motivate students to achieve higher levels of performance.

The integration of such technologies in e-Learning apps will be the way ahead for market expansion.

What Obstacles do e-Learning App Providers Face?

“Lack of Infrastructure & Technology in Some Regions”

To study through e-Learning, there is the mandatory requirement of Internet access and smart devices; however, in many parts of the world, especially in developing countries, this facility is not fully available as yet. The bandwidth available is also low as compared to developed countries. This results in the digital divide, not only among the nations, but also between national populations.

Almost more than 50% of the world population is offline and the digital divide affects 42% of men and 52% of women, worldwide. Poor infrastructure and technology development in high-population regions such as Asia and Africa, which have a high percentage of the young population, will impact the digital education apps market directly.

Why is India a Lucrative Market for e-Learning Apps in South Asia & Oceania?

The Indian education market, currently estimated at US$ 8 billion, is expected to reach US$ 28.2 billion by 2032. India has one of the largest education systems in the world. India also has the highest population attending classes at school in the age bracket of 6 to 17.

New UGC regulations for online higher education w-e-f June 1, 2019 allow universities in India to extend fully-online degree programs, which is a positive development for e-Learning apps in the country.

The big push by the government to improve the gross enrolment ratio (GER) in the higher education of the country to 30% from the current 25.6% would need the industry to look at alternative methods of education. For all this, digital education apps will be the backbone of online learning outcomes.

How is the China e-Learning Apps Market Predicted to Evolve?

Mobile penetration rates are overwhelmingly higher than PC penetration rates in China. Owing to this, the online teaching apps market is growing at a fast rate to meet this increasing demand.

The market for e-Learning apps in China is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 23.3 Billion in 2022. This has proved to be an opportunity for e-Learning application companies to enter the local market with advanced app offerings for e-Learning.
