Technological advancements and internet access have changed the teaching process for all languages. English language learning programs are gaining momentum due to globalization, urbanization, and the desire for better education and employment opportunities. English is the most used official language and the second language widely spoken. In addition, it has become the most widely used language in the world for trade and commerce over the past decade or two.

The growth of this market is driven by the rising importance of English in business & professional areas, increasing investments in start-ups & small companies teaching English, and the minimal cost of English language learning apps. However, reluctance to accept English as a primary communication tool in some countries may restrain the growth of this market. The increasing spending on the education sector and transnational education (TNE) is expected to create market growth opportunities. However, the dearth of trained professionals to teach English is a major challenge for the players operating in this market. Additionally, artificial intelligence (AI) & robot technology and e-learning are the major global English language learning market trends.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the English Language Learning Market

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had an unprecedented impact on various sectors. Most industries struggled due to challenges such as workforce scarcity and employee safety. The COVID-19 pandemic has been disrupting education systems, particularly affecting the most vulnerable learners and businesses across the globe. Switching to remote working amidst the COVID-19 pandemic triggered an increase in new registrations, bringing the registrations to more than 71 million in 2020 and 92 million in 2021. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the adoption of English e-learning platforms. As most schools, colleges, and educational institutes were closed due to the lockdown restriction, the focus on remote learning platforms increased. E-learning platforms are becoming a big success in education, especially in K-12 and higher education, by increasing the retention of information through virtual learning. Most English language tutoring apps and learning platforms attracted students by offering free or low-cost classes, leading to a surge in online education users and adoption rates. For instance, in 2020, Sanako Corporation (Finland) announced a free subscription to Sanako Connect, a new remote language classroom solution for schools. Sanako Connect allowed students and teachers to access sessions from anywhere using laptops, Chromebooks, or tablets.

Speak to our Analysts to Understand the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Business:

According to the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), nearly 463 million students around the globe faced interruptions in 2020 in education, mainly due to a lack of remote learning policies or equipment needed for learning at home. Thus, governments around the globe undertook substantial efforts to ensure continuing education opportunities and rolled out initiatives for the growth of the education sector. For instance, the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications provided up to USD 4.31 million in 2020 (300 million rubles) to develop online educational services in Russia. In 2020, the Ministry of Education in the U.K. increased the translation of COVID-19 materials and ensured that immigrant and refugee service centers with access to ongoing learning materials. Such developments and the growing adoption of online platforms for English language learning are expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

Increasing investments in start-ups and small companies are expected to drive the English language learning market

Education start-ups are evolving rapidly to cater to the needs of hundreds of millions of non-English medium students and individual learners for English language training. The global demand for higher education is expected to increase, and nearly 600 million students will be enrolled in universities worldwide by 2040. Many students present a unique opportunity for education start-ups to expand their product portfolio for English language learning platforms. Since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, English language learning apps have seen a boom in interest by investors as traditional classroom learning models have been flipped upside down. Alternative language learning companies are attracting investors and reaching "unicorn" status, a term used in the venture capital industry to describe a privately held startup company with a valuation of over USD 1 billion, more frequently than ever.

Several companies, including start-ups, have received investments for accelerating the English language learning platforms. For instance, in 2020, (U.S.), an EdTech start-up, received an investment of approximately USD 1 million from the Venture capital firm LETA Capital. This investment aims to improve the mobile application developed by the company whose AI-voice virtual tutor teaches spoken English to children and launch the application in new regions. In 2019, Duolingo (U.S.) received funding of USD 30 million in a new round of funding by Alphabet's investment arm CapitalG for the R&D of new products to develop English language learning solutions and to enhance its AI and machine learning capabilities. All such initiatives and increase in investments for start-ups and companies will help develop newer English language learning solutions to meet the demand and propel the English language learning market in the upcoming years.
