NEW YORK, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The global online education market size is expected to grow by USD 121.85 billion from 2020 to 2025. However, the growth momentum is likely to decelerate at a CAGR of 9.24%.  The key factor driving growth in the online education market is the growing advantages of online learning. Owing to the high cost and limited accessibility associated with traditional printed textbooks, educational institutions are increasingly focusing on online education. Vendors also provide audio-visual content and simulation learning platforms, which can be customized as per the school’s curriculum. The availability of various support solutions, such as learning management solution (LMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP), as well as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), blended learning solutions, and student assessment software, has further played a major role in enhancing the demand for online education by various schools and universities.

Online Education Market: Major Challenge

The key challenges affecting the growth of the e-learning and online education market is cybersecurity. With the increased digitization of education, the threats related to information security, unwarranted access, and student data privacy have increased. The key reasons for the vulnerability of the educational sector to cyberattacks include the availability of valuable user and organizational data, the lack of a centralized structure for data storage, and the unregulated use of personal digital devices. The major sources of cybersecurity threats to educational content include malware viruses, such as WannaCry, through social media, the virtualization of systems, and the consumerization of IT. Hence, the inadequacy of the cybersecurity measures adopted by educational institutions and individual learners is expected to hamper the growth of the global online education market during the forecast period.
