The higher education industry is a $2 trillion market. Higher education has seen relatively little innovation until recently. The process of transformation of the educational sector accelerated after the pandemic changed the jobs market, forcing more companies to launch a digital transformation. The technology provided more flexibility to both educators and learners, making education and re-skilling more affordable for learners. It is expected that 1.3 billion people to reach working age in the next 10 years, including 43mn in the US, 241mn in India, 170mn in China, 29mn in Brazil, and 22mn in Mexico. Low-skill jobs may disappear due to automation further increasing the demand for re-skilling.
