The global digital education market size is forecasted to grow from USD 8.4 billion in 2020 to USD 33.2 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 31.4% during the forecast period. Major factors expected to drive the growth of the digital education market include increased internet penetration around the world, reduced infrastructure cost and increased scalability using online learning, and growing demand for microlearning.

Flexibility of time and place and comparatively low cost are the two key attraction points for the individual learners that attract them toward the online courses.Universities can greatly improve their effectiveness of their courses by availing online education to their students.

Though large number of universities and educational institutions still run the traditional educational models, many of them are adapting to this change.
