logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing adoption of digital learning to promote market growth

The global digital education publishing market is projected to grow owing to the increasing adoption of digital learning across the world. The segment is gaining high popularity due to the several advantages offered to it. For instance, it allows improved convenience in terms of learning along with high accessibility since it can be used from any corner of the world Furthermore, with the help of digital learning, time constraint ceases to become an important limitation in the education sector since students can undertake learning sessions at their convenience.

Furthermore, digital learning also offers personalized learning which is an important aspect of knowledge programs in the modern era since students are increasingly opting for sessions that align with their passion and preference. Since multiple educational institutes are adopting digital learning in some form, the global industry has managed to create growth momentum in the last few years. These tools are often termed as more interactive, engaging, and knowledge-sharing as compared to traditional educational content. Teachers and students can access the available information at any point making learning a comfortable journey.

logo Restraints

  • High development cost to restrict market expansion

Digital learning systems and tools can be effective only when they are made of high-quality content. Furthermore, the adoption rate is influenced by the friendliness of the user interface and the status of the content present on the system. However, developing such high-grade tools requires a high development cost. It can act as a considerable barrier for small or new entrants that are trying to gain consumer access and compete with already-established players.

logo Opportunities

  • Personalized learning to provide excellent growth opportunities

Unlike traditional education publishing, which is generally set in its way and cannot be changed once printed and made commercially available, digital learning systems can be changed which means that they are available for tweaking in case of personalized learning requests. These systems are capable of providing students with customized learning experiences depending on their requirements. As more players offer exclusive content depending on market demand, the expansion opportunities are expected to be manyfold.

logo Challenges

  • Quality assurance to pose a major threat

Digital education publishing systems can vary in quality depending on the service and product provider. There is no standard thumb rule that governs these systems and hence it is difficult to gauge the quality of the products available in the market. The lack of quality assurance mechanisms and regulatory measures in place is a major threat to global sales volume as it can lead to a loss of confidence amongst the consumer group resulting in declining demand.
