The Global, Digital Face of Education
Online learning and soaring education demand in Asia creates huge demand for learning products
Education: A Fast Growing Export
International student growth from Asia is topping 10% per year
While traditional exports sagged across North America, the UK, and Australia, international student enrollment has continued to climb -- nearly half of these students are coming from China, India, Korea, and emerging Asia markets such as Vietnam and Pakistan. 750,000+ international students per year mean billions in spending on pre-K to 12 supplementary education products, courses, and content
Early International Experiences
Demand for private high schools and summer programs soars
Affluent Chinese families are increasingly turning to private high schools, summer programs, and camps in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia to give their children an early edge. The US alone saw Chinese students enrolled in private high schools soar from under 6,000 in 2005 to nearly 28,000 in 2016. To get ready, parents will spend at least US$40,000 per child on preparation and supplementary learning products
Online Learning = Global Classrooms
From tutoring to professional education, Asia is moving online
Online course delivery is putting phonics classes, one-on-one tutoring, test prep courses, and counseling in the hands of families across Asia. Meanwhile, MBA and professional development programs are tapping online and blended learning plans to build their ranks of alumni from Shanghai to Singapore. In mainland China, paid educational content is emerging as tomorrow's next growth category.
Education Products and Courses
Software, assessments, edutainment products, and much more
The relaxation of China's one-child policy is one of numerous drivers behind its soaring demand for international education products, courses and experiences.
