An organizational site license for the Premium Edition of this research (multiple sites and unlimited users) can be purchased for USD $9,275.00.

The Premium Edition is an Excel file that includes 25 tables: 7 tables (one for each region) that combined, provide five-year 2013-2018 forecasts for 106 countries. There are 7 supply-side tables that provide five-year forecasts for three categories of eLearning products foe each region combined. There is a worldwide demand-side table and a worldwide supply-side table. Due to the concentrated revenues in the US, there are also 5 US-centric tables that break out content expenditutes for the corporate and consumer segments.

Premium reports are designed for suppliers that understand the buying behavior in specific countries and just need the global five-year country and product forecasts that they use for their strategic and tactical planning.

China and Brazil are the largest buying countries in their respective regions and the Preimum includes a table for each country with forecasts broken out by six buying segments: Consumer, Corporations & Businesses, PreK-12 Academic, Higher Education, Federal Government, and Local/Provincial Government buyers. There is also a supply-side table for three product types for both China and Brazil.

Overview:

The worldwide market for Self-paced eLearning reached $42.7 billion in 2013. The five-year compound annual growth rate is 4.4% and revenues will reach $53.0 billion by 2018. Five-year revenue forecasts are provided for 106 countries in this report.

Until recently, Self-paced eLearning products were only in high demand 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 106 of the countries analyzed in this report are now part of an international supply chain.

In 2013, the top buying countries were the US, China, South Korea, Japan, India, and the UK, respectively. By 2018, the top buying countries will be the US, China, South Korea, India, Brazil, and Japan, respectively.

The astonishing growth rates and adoption rates in countries like Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam 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.)

The supply-side section provides regional revenue forecasts for three types of eLearning products and services including: packaged content, custom content development services, and tools/platforms.

Regional reports are designed for suppliers that are competing (or plan to compete) in specific regions.

North America: (Available Now for $3,875.00)


Ambient Insight defines the North America region as Canada and United States (US). The four major catalysts driving the sales of Self-paced eLearning products in North America are the reduction of training and education budgets in the organizational buying segments, the content digitization efforts in the PreK-12 segments, the steady increase of online enrollments in the two academic segments, and the adoption of digital products in the commercial training and education industry.


The United States was the top buying country in 2013. In 2013, the US accounted for 57% of global revenues for Self-paced eLearning. By 2018, the US will still account for 51% of worldwide eLearning revenues.


The revenues for Self-paced eLearning in North America reached $24.4 billion in 2013 and will grow to $27.2 billion by 2018. North America is the most mature market in the world with a modest growth rate of 2.2%. 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 10.2% and 7.4%, respectively.

The supply-side analysis provides five-year revenue forecasts for three categories of Self-paced eLearning: packaged content, custom content development services, and authoring tools/platforms for both Canada and the US combined.

Additionally, the report provides forecasts for US consumer spending on packaged eLearning content by eight subject matter categories and forecasts for self-paced language learning courses by five languages.
