The education industry spans private and private sector brick & mortar entities as well as the fast-growing online e-learning segment that includes non-profit/for-profit courses that result in a certificate/degree and massive open online courses or MOOCs, and corporate training. According to one source (IBIS Capital) the global education market is worth $4.4 trillion with elearning the fastest-growing segment- expected to grow 23% by 2017.

In higher education, a demand for better return on investment is changing the way students and potential students in both developed and developing countries view available educational options- by institution, by country, by mode. Tutoring and testing services providers benefit from the divergent trends of educational system inadequacies and the need to secure a place in the best schools by delivering superior test scores.

Greater use and acceptance of elearning in corporate training is a clear trend. English language skills, IT skills, and sales and safety training drive the business learning market globally.
