The global test preparation market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019. A test preparation, or exam preparation, refers to an educational training given to enhance test-takers' performance on standardized tests. Several test developers have introduced numerous solutions, including practice papers, crash courses, class curricula, mock tests, in-person or online tutoring packages, etc. These solutions aim to develop test-takers' skills and abilities through practice and exposure to the problems that resemble the actual test. As a result, test preparation is widely adopted for elementary exams, competitive exams, certification exams, high school exams, university exams, etc.
The rising demand for test preparation solutions can be primarily attributed to the growing focus of graduates on enhancing their qualifications and skills for better employability. Furthermore, increasing need for skilled workforce in the service sector is propelling the demand for vocational and supplementary training programs. Additionally, the rising internet penetration coupled with the expanding education technology sector, has offered numerous online test preparation courses for the students. This has also led to a growing shift from conventional study groups and practice tests towards online mock tests with built-in guidebooks and applications. Apart from this, the improving economic conditions along with the developing educational infrastructures across countries, such as Vietnam, India, Russia, Nigeria, etc., are also propelling the market growth. Moreover, the increasing popularity of standardized tests, including SAT, TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, etc., is further catalyzing the demand for test preparation solutions. Besides this, the rising penetration of secured digital payment gateways along with the instantaneous results and flexibility offered by test preparation solutions is also augmenting the market growth. In the coming years, the emergence of m-learning methods, including self-assessment solutions along with the integration of AI-based interviews and examinations, is expected to drive the market growth.
The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the early 2020, has led to the shutdown of schools and colleges due to the implementation of strict lockdown regulations. As a result, several education institutes are shifting towards online-based test preparation solutions, thereby bolstering the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global test preparation market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
