Published on Jul 18, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Asia Pacific E-Learning Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the Asia Pacific e-learning market size reached US$ 56.6 Billion in 2021. E-learning, also known as online learning, is a learning system that utilizes electronic resources and information and communication technology (ICT) to deliver a course, program, or degree digitally. It provides information and training in text, image, animation, video, and audio formats via the internet, satellite broadcast, interactive TV, intranet, or CD-ROM. Compared to traditional learning methods, it is more cost-effective, saves time, removes geographical barriers, and enables students to select their learning duration, material, and environment. As a result, e-learning is rapidly gaining traction in the Asia Pacific region across different sectors, such as education, corporate, agriculture, and healthcare.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
