  • Educational institutions and businesses are increasingly requesting online learning tools.

  • After the pandemic, the continuous growing trend of digital education and eLearning is creating Opportunity for market.


  • The lack of digital literacy and skills are Major Challenge.

  • Many teachers who are Using traditional lecture delivery methods will find it difficult to embrace new tactics.

The importance of technical training for teachers and instructors in the modern learning environment cannot be overstated. To facilitate effective and seamless class sessions, educators must possess the necessary skills to navigate various devices and software. The integration of innovative techniques, including course design, assignment development, assessment and evaluation, online content delivery, and collaboration, presents a significant challenge for many instructors who are accustomed to traditional teaching methods.

This challenge is not unique to any specific country or region, rather, it is a global issue that educational institutions and instructors worldwide must address.

Impact of Economic downturn

The economic downturn results in reductions in budgets across public and private sectors, impacting investments in educational technology. This results in a slowdown in the adoption of advanced smart learning technologies, which necessitate substantial initial investments. Educational institutions and corporations, faced with financial constraints, may choose to scale back on new initiatives, favoring more conventional or budget-friendly educational methods. A parallel consequence of economic hardships is a decrease in consumer spending power, fostering a climate of caution regarding investments in smart learning solutions, especially those perceived as non-essential or luxurious. This financial conservatism further contributes to a potential deceleration in the growth of the smart learning market. Economic downturns can paradoxically act as a catalyst for innovation and the widespread adoption of smart learning technologies. Disruptions in traditional education and corporate training models force stakeholders to explore more efficient and scalable alternatives. Smart learning platforms, offering flexibility, scalability, and often more cost-effective options, have become increasingly appealing. These platforms provide high-quality, accessible, and personalized learning experiences, gaining traction as organizations seek to maximize outcomes while minimizing costs.

Impact of Russia Ukraine war

The Russia-Ukraine crisis has exerted a noticeable influence on various sectors, the implementation of economic sanctions on Russia and the ensuing economic upheaval in Ukraine have resulted in reduce investment and developmental activities in the smart learning sector within these nations. Faced with financial constraints, companies and educational institutions may divert their attention towards immediate necessities rather than channeling resources into smart learning solutions. International companies may exhibit hesitancy in investing or operating in the region, prompted by concerns related to political risks and economic instability. This hesitancy could potentially decelerate the progress and acceptance of smart learning technologies. Both countries are significant players in education technology (EdTech). The war has caused economic instability and infrastructure damage in Ukraine, hindering Smart Learning adoption. The sanctions on Russia might limit access to technology and international partnerships, impacting its Smart Learning market growth.

16. Conclusion

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.
