Demand Analysis of Virtual Schools from 2016 to 2020 Vs. Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

Virtual schools are those that teach students via online media such as video conferencing over the Internet. There has been a lot of debate on how virtual schooling is not as effective as traditional schooling, but in recent years, the notion seems to be changing and people have been more accepting of virtual schooling trends.

While change was initially minimal, major boost in the popularity of virtual schools came in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world and bought it to a near standstill. Due to complete lockdowns, it wasn’t possible to conduct classes using the traditional schooling system, and most educational institutes across the world turned to virtual schooling.

Private education management organizations and non-profit education management organizations alike switched to virtual schooling when the pandemic hit. Even in 2021, there are many nations where schools have not been started with physical attendance, and this has majorly boosted demand for virtual schools.

Overall, the global virtual schools industry is expected to progress at a CAGR of nearly 11% over the next ten years.
