Education Services: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – Education services are academic instructional services provided by public, for-profit and not-for-profit institutions, either through traditional teaching methods or over the Internet. The world market for education services is expected to make rapid progress driven largely by emerging opportunities in human resource rich developing countries like China and India. Encouraged by the rising Human Development Indicator (HDI) in these countries, demand for education and training services across various disciplines is growing. The market is significantly influenced by prevailing employment trends in both the manufacturing and tertiary sectors. Globalization of institutions and educational programs is also driving demand for superior educational facilities, services, and certification classes. Also, the promise of greater returns on higher education and additional qualifications is a major factor driving demand for education services, specifically for foreign education courses.
The current economic scenario in the world economy characterized by the debt crisis in Europe, slowing down of the BRICs, and fiscal cliff issues in the US, is creating a rich mixture of both opportunities and challenges in the market. While rising unemployment levels tend to frustrate growth, the tight economic conditions paradoxically also heighten the need for acquiring new skills. People tend to opt for upgrading their skills or obtaining additional educational qualifications in attempts to improve their employability. These efforts have also partly been supported by governments’ stimulus packages, which set aside allocations for the education sector for improving employment opportunities in distressed times. In addition, an aging global workforce is also creating opportunities for education service providers. As businesses find it increasingly difficult to find people with the right skills, there will be increased emphasis laid on developing and grooming the potential young workforce. Companies involved in providing relevant, accessible, and flexible education programs, particularly, will benefit under this scenario.
As stated by the new market research report on education services, the United States represents the single largest market worldwide. Demand for education services, such as vocational education and training, technical and online education, and language schools, is rising driven by the growing competitiveness in the labor market. Although universities have been affected by the challenging economic environment, programs with online and hybrid instruction modes are finding increased adoption among private universities and colleges across the country. Growth in developing countries like China and India, on the other hand, is driven by increasing awareness and emphasis on the importance of education. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market for education services with a projected CAGR of 9.8% over the analysis period.
