Research Methodology

The report has been prepared through the following comprehensive methodology:

Market size of online learning and skill development has been defined as the aggregate of online learning spend by experienced as well as budding professionals, entrepreneurs and corporate employees. For estimating the total market size, whole of the online learning space was segregated into B2B and B2C to calculate the demand for online learning and training. A demand-driven approach has been followed rather than a supply-driven approach as several online skill development providers — such as Udacity and Udemy — also cater to learners from outside the US.

Bases of all the figures and future estimates are taken from the statistics provided by the online learning companies, government, ministries, as well as prominent organizations such as the World Bank, International Monetary Funds, UNESCO Institute of Statistics, World Factbook — CIA etc.  The data is further validated through credible analyst reports, white papers by industry organizations, questioners and expert interviews.

Market size of online learning and skill development in the US is estimated to reach US$XX.XX billion by the end of 2016. While XX.XX % (US$ XX.XX billion) of the market comprises of online training and skill development in Business–to–Business (B2B) space, the Business–to–Consumer (B2C) space accounts for only XX.XX % of the market at an estimated US$ XX.XX billion.
