Estimates suggest that this trend of strong growth will continue for years to come, reaching 8.3 billion dollars by 2023.

Education software market

As the name would suggest, education software and applications are tools created for the purpose of teaching and education, both within classrooms and at a consumer level. This market encompasses everything from language learning applications such as Duolingo, to classroom management software such as Blackboard and Moodle. In addition to these education-oriented companies, many of the world’s largest tech firms have entered the market, with Oracle, Microsoft, and SAP all holding significant market shares within the industry. Technology has become an integral aspect of business and research worldwide and in order to prepare students for professional life, universities have adopted increasingly technology-focused learning techniques which drive paper-based assignments and submissions obsolete. With an increasing number of students receiving degrees each year, the potential user base for educational software platforms is consistently increasing.
