The introduction of learning management systems (LMS) have transformed the learning and development landscape. It has not just made learning and training more fun, but has also made it more effective. With online education and eLearning tools and technologies breaking barriers in the learning and development (L&D) vertical, the LMS industry is set to scale new heights in the coming years. And, if the LMS forecast is anything to go by, trends indicate robust growth.
The LMS market study and forecast for 2018 – 2023 is out
The Global Forecast to 2023 – the Research and Markets report on the LMS market – covers every segment: component (solution and services), delivery mode (distance learning, instructor-led training, and blended learning), deployment type, user type (academic and corporate), and region.
According to PR Newswire, the global LMS market share is projected to grow from 9.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2018 to 22.4 billion U.S. dollars by 2023 at a CAGR of 19.6% during the forecast period.
The main factors fueling the LMS growth include increased adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and enterprise mobility, major government initiatives for the growth of LMS; increase in demand for gamification; and growing usage of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These factors have augmented the adoption of digital learning and increased the significance of eLearning in corporate and academic settings. But low motivation and engagement by organizations can impede the market growth of LMS.
Cloud-based LMS will garner the largest LMS market share during the forecast period
Cloud-based LMS adoption in the training and development structure is growing at a rapid pace. Vendors throughout the world are switching from on-premise LMS deployment to cloud-based solutions. Cloud-based LMS service providers are continually delivering on innovations, and they have also prioritized security. In the next five years, the global cloud-based LMS market is expected to increase substantially.
Also, during the forecast period, the academic user type is expected to garner the largest market share. The academic sector is expected to perform the best in the LMS market during the forecast period. The academic vertical includes all the standard courses which cover education from K-12 to higher education. The use of LMS in academics improves the efficiency of the learning process. Many universities around the world are using the LMS to improve their academic standards.
Further, during the forecast period, the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR). The education industry across the APAC region is expected to do very well because it covers a large area and is one of the major regions for software providers. Growing population, high LMS adoption rate and increasing economic development make this region the fastest-growing LMS market.
