Until recently, Self-paced eLearning products were in high demand primarily in developed economies. Due to the rapid adoption of eLearning now taking place in developing economies and the explosion in the number of new suppliers, it is now possible to see the contours of a global eLearning ecosystem. The suppliers competing in all 85 of the countries analyzed in this report are now part of an international supply chain.

The astonishing growth rates and adoption rates in countries like Vietnam and Azerbaijan are good examples of once-nascent markets that became vibrant revenue opportunities for suppliers in just the last two years (literally "overnight" in the context of a learning technology product lifecycle.)

Regional Editions

Massive Content Digitization Efforts and Booming Online Higher Education Enrollments Driving Adoption of Self-paced eLearning

Pricing:
An organizational site license (multiple sites and unlimited users) for these Regional Editions range in price from US$1,525.00 to $3,875.00 depending on the number of countries profiled in each report.

The Regional Editions include a demand-side forecast analysis with five-year forecasts and profiles for the top buying countries in each region, a supply-side section with revenue forecasts for five types of Self-paced eLearning products and services, and an index of suppliers in that specific region. Regional reports are designed for suppliers that are competing (or plan to compete) in specific regions.

North America: (Available Now for $1,525.00)


Ambient Insight defines the North America region as Canada and United States (US). The two most significant catalysts in North America are reduced training and education budgets in all the buying segments, and digitization efforts in the various state, provincial, county, city, and municipal school systems.


In 2011, the top buying country for Self-paced eLearning in the world was the US.


The revenues for Self-paced eLearning in North America reached $21.9 billion in 2011. North America is the most mature market in the world with a modest growth rate of 4.4%. While the growth rate may seem low compared to the other regions in the world, the revenues are very high. A modest growth rate in a region with very high revenues means that revenues will remain steady over the forecast period.


Additionally, growth rates vary depending on the buying segment. For example, the growth rates in the Canadian and US healthcare segments are 16.8% and 12.8%, respectively.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. In the demand-side analysis, a detailed breakout of revenue forecasts for eight buyer segments is included for both Canada and the US.


The supply-side section provides North American revenue forecasts for five types of eLearning products and services including: packaged content, custom content development services, cloud-based authoring tools and learning platform services, installed authoring tools, and installed learning platforms.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $1,525.00.


The growth rate for cloud-based authoring tools and learning platforms in North America is 9.0%, which is more than twice the growth rate for all products combined, and the highest growth rate of all products in North America.

Latin America: (Available Now for $2,350.00)


The growth rate for Self-paced eLearning products and services in Latin America is 14.6% and revenues will double from $1.1 billion to $2.2 billion by 2016. Packaged content accounts for the majority of revenues throughout the forecast period.


In this Latin America regional report, five-year revenue forecasts are broken out for Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Colombia.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. Additionally there is an index of over 115 suppliers competing in the region. The demand-side analysis provides suppliers with insight into the buying behaviors in the top buying countries in Latin America. The buying behavior is different in each country.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $2,350.00.


In general, as of 2011, Latin America is largely a "consuming" region, importing the majority of content and technology from outside the region. This will change over the forecast period as domestic suppliers continue to gain market share.


The major catalyst across Latin America is the rapid digitization of academic content for the schools. Another major catalyst is the launch of Mobile Learning VAS (value added services) in several countries including Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina, and Colombia. This has resulted in the wide adoption of learning technology across the consumer segments in these countries.

Western Europe: (Available Now for $3,875.00)


As of 2011, Western Europe is the second largest buying region after North America. This will change over the forecast period with Asia outspending Western Europe by 2016.


The growth rate for Self-paced eLearning in Western Europe is 5.8% and revenues will reach $8.1 billion by 2016, up from the $6.1 billion reached in 2011. The current adoption is heavily concentrated in the far western and far northern countries. This is changing fast as growth rates slow in the more mature markets in some countries and growth rates accelerate in other countries.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $3,875.00.


In this Western Europe region report, five-year revenue forecasts are broken out for twenty-two countries: Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, Italy, Finland, Belgium, Norway, Poland, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Austria, Ireland, Slovakia, Greece, Bulgaria, Portugal, the Czech Republic, and Romania.


In the current Western Europe market, revenues are still concentrated in corporate buying segments in certain countries. This will change over the forecast period with academic institutions outspending corporate buyers by 2016. There are now major digitization efforts going on in the school systems in France, Poland, Italy, Portugal, Romania, the Czech Republic, and Spain.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. Additionally, there is an index of suppliers and resellers competing in the region.

Eastern Europe: (Available Now for $2,350.00)


Once considered an emerging market, Eastern Europe is now a vibrant rapidly maturing growth opportunity for suppliers. The growth rate for Self-paced eLearning in Eastern Europe is 16.9%. Revenues reached $583.2 million in 2011 and by 2016 will reach $1.2 billion.


Eastern Europe has the second-highest growth rate in the world after Asia, yet the two regions are essentially on par in terms of growth. The eLearning market is growing by 17.3% in Asia, which is a mere 0.4% higher than Eastern Europe.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $2,350.00.


There are a growing number of large-scale academic content digitization efforts underway in several countries including the Russian Federation, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Croatia, Moldova, and Azerbaijan. These programs are rolling out at an accelerated rate seen nowhere else in the world.


The Russian Federation is the most mature market in Eastern Europe. Online learning is still experiencing rapid growth in both Russian academic segments.


This adoption trend is not isolated in the academic segments. For example, the rate of learning technology adoption across all the buying segments in Azerbaijan is nothing short of extraordinary. As recently as four years ago, there was almost no demand for learning technology, and at best, the government was still running small-scale pilots. That has changed dramatically and now Azerbaijan is a vibrant market for technology-based learning products. Azerbaijan has the fourth-largest eLearning growth rate in the world and the highest growth rate in Eastern Europe.


In this Eastern Europe regional report, five-year revenue forecasts are broken out for Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, the Russian Federation, Serbia, and Ukraine.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. Additionally, there is an index of suppliers and resellers competing in the region. The demand-side analysis provides suppliers with insight into the buying behavior in the top buying countries in Eastern Europe.

Asia: (Available Now for $3,875.00)


Asia has the highest growth rate for eLearning in the world at 17.3%. Revenues reached $5.2 billion in 2011 and will more than double to $11.5 billion by 2016. Asia will be the top buying region throughout the forecast period.


The vast majority of revenues will be generated from the sales of packaged content. The demand for content is now spiking in many countries in the region and suppliers in those countries are ramping up their efforts to meet the demand. There is a surge in the number of reseller agreements, mergers, and acquisition between international and domestic content suppliers.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $3,875.00.


Vietnam and Malaysia have the top highest growth rates for eLearning products in the world at 44.3% and 39.4%, respectively. Thailand, the Philippines, China, and India are also in the top ten countries with the highest growth rates on the planet.


There are three major catalysts in Asia. Two catalysts—the massive content digitization efforts across the school systems in every country in the region and the large-scale deployments of tablets in the academic segments—essentially create a new delivery platform for suppliers. The third catalyst is the explosive growth of online higher education enrollments. Combined, these catalysts have created a massive demand for packaged content.


In this report on the Asia region, five-year revenue forecasts are broken out for sixteen countries: Australia, Bangladesh, China (including Hong Kong and Macao), India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Nine countries have growth rates above the combined aggregate growth rate of 17.3% in the region.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. Additionally, there is an index of over 250 suppliers and resellers competing in the region. The demand-side analysis provides suppliers with insight into the buying behavior in the top buying countries in Asia.

Forecasts for ten countries are included in this regional report: Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Oman has the highest growth rate in the region at 19.6%, followed by Lebanon, Turkey, Kuwait, and Qatar at 16.0%, 12.9%, 12.6%, and 11.3%, respectively.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $2,350.00.


The three major catalysts in the Middle East are the countrywide content digitization efforts across the school systems in the region, the large-scale deployments of tablets in the academic segments, and the rapid adoption of eLearning in the higher education segments. Combined, these catalysts have created a massive demand for packaged content.


There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis. Additionally, there is an index of over 150 suppliers competing in the region. The demand-side analysis provides insight into the buying behavior in the ten top buying countries in the Middle East and identifies the top buyer segment in each of those countries.

Africa: (Available Now for $3,875.00)


Africa is the most dynamic eLearning market on the planet. Ambient Insight has revised our forecasts significantly upward for most African countries. The growth rate for Self-paced eLearning in Africa is 15.2%. Revenues reached $250.9 million in 2011 and will more than double to $512.7 million by 2016. Eleven of the sixteen countries analyzed in this region have growth rates above the 15.2% aggregate rate.


This is a regional report designed for suppliers that are competing (or plan to compete) in Africa and includes revenue forecasts for sixteen countries: Algeria, Angola, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.


This Regional Self-paced eLearning report is available now in the Ambient Insight Store for $3,875.00.


Senegal has the highest growth rate in Africa at 30.4%, followed by Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya at 27.9%, 25.1% and 24.9%, respectively. Revenues are growing very fast in many African countries. By 2016, revenues will double in seven countries and will more than triple in four countries.

The major finding in this report is that the supply and demand metrics for eLearning in Africa are evolving so fast that the market bears little resemblance to the competitive landscape as recently as two years ago.
