logoMarket Overview

Education in the United States is one of the most sought-after educational programs across the globe. It is offered in both public and private schools along with people who work on homeschooling events. The State government is the responsible authority that sets the educational standards, oftentimes mandating standardized exams and tests for kindergarten to 12th standard (K-12) students in the schools that qualify as public schools and secure funds from government bodies. The State government monitors or supervises universities and state colleges with the help of the board of regents. In the case of private institutes, they are free to determine the educational standards by drafting their own staffing policies and practices along with the study curriculum.

Private institutes can voluntarily get themselves accredited with the aid of independent regional authorities that provide such services; however, state regulations may apply in such cases. Most of the students get educational certificates from state-funded public education units and a relatively lesser percentage of students go to private schools. Although homeschooling is an option, in 2013, only 3% of the students were homeschooled. Almost all private or public schools provide higher secondary education whereas postsecondary is classified as a college curriculum.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Growing number of international students to drive market demand

The global U.S. Education market is projected to benefit from the rising number of international students visiting the country for higher studies. Every year millions of students apply to the various technical and non-technical institutes housed in the US. The region offers quality education in almost all sectors including research, information technology, business administration programs, music, and film making to name a few. The US hosts a number of long-term and short-term courses which benefits the overall growth in the segment since students have a wide range of educational programs to choose from. As per estimates, more than 100 million students apply to US colleges annually. Some of these entities are world-renowned and students have to crack a number of competitive exams to enter their courses, making them exclusive in turn generating higher curiosity amongst the students.

logo Restraints

  • High cost to restrict market expansion

The regional education market may witness growth restrictions due to the high cost of the programs, especially niche or technical subjects. The total expense of tuition fees along with accommodation and other expenses for a bachelor's degree in computer science is around USD 80,000. The total expense varies from one course to another but they are all generally big-budget courses. Many international students as well as American citizens are unable to pursue these programs because of such high numbers.

logo Opportunities

  • Growing sponsorship programs to provide growth opportunities

Many colleges in the US have dedicated centers that handle sponsorship programs for students from all backgrounds and certain education or sports credits. For instance, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world’s most prestigious private land-grant research universities, offers scholarships to almost 58% of the institute’s undergraduates for further studies. They also offer 100% scholarships to international students after meeting college grant requirements. Other factors like assistance in finding part-time jobs while studying and the growing number of research grants could attract more students during the forecast period.

logo Challenges

  • Reports of overcrowding to challenge the market expansion

A study conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics concluded that almost 14% of the schools in the country were exceeding the maximum capacity of students. This aspect could potentially lead to the fall of the country’s education system since at present times more emphasis needs to be paid to providing equal attention to all students. However, overcrowded classrooms make it difficult for the teachers to achieve the goal.
