In recent years, the e-learning sector has seen substantial expansion. Furthermore, the market had a sharp increase in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This might be ascribed to the adoption of numerous skill improvement campaigns by governments and businesses throughout the world. Due to increased investment in skill evaluation technologies for a better understanding of employees on an emotional and cultural scale, the e-learning industry is expected to thrive in the COVID-19 environment. Furthermore, in order to stay competitive, the majority of EdTech companies have moved their focus to digitalization in order to provide online services that assist employees and students in comparing their skill levels and selecting the best alternatives and offers for conducting assessments online. COVID-19 has become clear that it will have long-term effects on people's lives and economies by increasing demand for e-learning in conjunction with an increase in demand for skilled labor and an increase in a government effort to raise overall worker levels, which will positively impact market growth.


E-learning is a broad term that refers to a variety of courseware and content delivery services for a variety of end-user applications. Packaged material, learning management systems, and other developing learning outlets, such as serious games and gamified mobile applications, are the most prevalent. Video-based learning, virtual classrooms, social learning, gamification, and simulations are all-important education paradigms that are gaining traction. Gamification and virtual classrooms stand out from the others due to their high levels of engagement and perceived efficacy.

When taking an instructor-led course, the speed is normally predefined and cannot be changed to suit your needs. One of the most popular options is self-paced study. Self-paced learning is a way of learning that allows the student to study at his or her own speed. It gives the students control over how much content they use and how much time they spend doing so. Self-paced learning dominated the global e-learning market in 2021, and it is predicted to grow at a faster rate than instructor-led learning throughout the forecast period.

In terms of e-learning market share, the corporate e-learning market accounted for the largest share in 2021, which is noteworthy, thanks to a growing focus on talent up-gradation and retention. Furthermore, as organizations grow their corporate presence across countries, globalization is requiring a diverse combination of functional and linguistic abilities for the crucial personnel. The K-12 and higher education segments accounted for roughly the second and third highest share of revenue in the e-learning market, respectively, due to increased federal budgetary allocations in the education sector, as they invest in improving digital connectivity and ensuring high-quality education to gain resource competitiveness.

The training feature provides learners with live or recorded lectures, as well as essential notes or other relevant information. Testing is critical in determining a learner's grasping capacity. It also verifies a student's understanding of a particular subject or course. In 2021, the worldwide e-learning market was dominated by training functions.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
