Education Strong Globally

Education is one of the fastest developing sectors worldwide, generating large-scale revenues and employment, according to a new report from Research and Markets.

Major changes have occurred in the recent past in the structure and education technology driven by foreign education demand, e-learning and test preparation market. With the effect of globalization, the demand for better education has increased, largely through increased private participation.

The “e-education” market is a burgeoning segment with high growth potential. In 2007-08, the U.S. constituted 60 percent of the global market, and Europe accounted for 15 percent of the market.

But in spite of the global economic downturn, the number of students going abroad for studies is rising globally. The global education industry has experienced a rapid growth rate, supported by rising awareness in developing countries (especially India & China). For instance:

Australia has developed an effective and efficient higher education system. Almost 1 million students enrolled in higher education in 2007, with an increase of almost 4.7 percent from the level in 2006. In Japan, continuing education programs are most in demand due to a rapidly aging population and offering opportunities for U.S. extension colleges and universities. Indonesia is regarded as one of the major markets for U.S. educational institutes. There is increased demand in the private education market at the secondary and even primary education level in Korea.
