Education Industry "A rising industry"

Education Industry "A rising industry"
The Indian Education Industry is in its development stage. Current public spending on education in India is 3.5% of GDP. The Central government accounts for 15% of the total expenditure while state government accounts for 85%. Today India's literacy rate stands at 61%.
   The number of junior basic schools are highest in the country & there is a strong need to set up higher secondary schools as well as colleges with a focus on IT education. The government has set up many ICT schools but still more than 50% of the market is untapped which shows an opportunity for private players. Trained teacher's & student's ratio is very low which claims the need of training institutes.
Indian Education System
Indian education system divides into two category.

  • Formal Education System
  • Informal Education System
FORMAL EDUCATION ( School & Higher Education)
  •   Under the purview of the ministry of Human Resource Development
  • Higher education comprises graduate/diploma/ Professional courses regulated by university grants commission(UGC)

INFORMAL EDUCATION ( Pre-Schools, Multimedia in schools & colleges, Coaching classes, Vocational training, Books)
  • Informal education system is free of any regulations
  • Not governed by any regulatory body

  • The Indian education market is expected to grow at 11% over the next 10 years. 
  • Pre-school, K-12 schooling & Higher Education will together represent 2/3rd of the market.
  • Multimedia in schools, child skill development , IT training & E-learning, preparatory & vocational studies are forecasted to grow in the range of 25% to 60% and will together represent 1/4th of the market.
