Analyst Review

LMS is a software application/tool primarily designed to develop, manage, and deliver learning & training modules and services to academic and corporate users, through electronic media. The Asia-Pacific LMS market has evolved over the last couple of years owing to significant investments in IT infrastructure. The ever-growing significance of digital learning due to its advantages has resulted in the wide adoption of LMS in academic and business learning/training programs in different Asia-Pacific countries. Moreover, this growth is supported by the increase in emphasis on continuous learning practices and growth in adoption of e-learning. Currently, China contributes highest revenue to this market owing to change in traditional education system and increase in number of start-ups in the e-learning industry. These start-ups that sell online courses have emerged to be potential users of LMS. However, India is expected to exhibit fastest growth during the forecast period, driven by the rise in government initiatives to promote smart learning. For instance, in 2015, the Indian government announced to implement the smart school model in thousands of government schools and equip them with Wi-Fi and e-learning facilities.

LMS is deployed using two key models: on-premise and SaaS. Among these, on-premise is more popular as it offers high customization opportunities, third-party extension integration facility, and improved data security. However, SaaS deployment model is expected to witness rapid growth rate ahead as large number of small- and mid-sized online education companies are entering the market, which has significantly boosted the growth of the LMS market in Asia-Pacific.

Among various industry verticals, the educational institution presently leads the market as implementation of an LMS is a crucial financial and strategic decision for universities and other educational institutions. However, BFSI and government possess high market potential for LMS providers, owing to the change in government interest from old training methods to advanced methods to implement streamlined training sessions, on-time information sharing, and an interactive learning experience.

The leading market players develop advanced technology solutions to promote digital learning and reduce learning & development cost and time. Moreover, these companies have consistently introduced innovative solutions to enhance their product portfolio. Acquisition and product launch were the two prominent growth strategies adopted by these players.
