Research and Markets: Global ICT Market in the Education Sector 2014-2018

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zhhl4w/global_ict_market) has announced the addition of the "Global ICT Market in the Education Sector 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global ICT market in the Education Sector to grow at a CAGR of 3.05 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need for creative and innovative learning. The Global ICT market in the Education sector has also been witnessing the increasing usage of tablets in the education vertical. However, the low levels of education could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space are Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard (News - Alert) Co., IBM Corp., and Microsoft Corp.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Acer Group, Apple Inc., Fujitsu Technolog Solutions, HCL Technologies, Lenovo Group Ltd., Oracle Corp., SAP AG, Toshiba Corp., and Wipro (News - Alert) Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: There has been a radical change in the way that knowledge is being imparted in schools, wherein textbooks are gradually being replaced by tablets. This has led to the development of more meaningful and functional applications in the field of education. Tablets have changed the way in which teachers interact with their students. Tablets can store a large volume of information that a student can access at any time. At secondary and higher education levels, tablets reduce the need for a student to refer to a lot of textbooks for each subject. Moreover, with the increasing number of applications being developed specifically for the Education sector, teachers can engage students with interesting educational applications. Hence, students will find the learning process exciting and motivating. This will help increase interactivity between students and teachers, which will in turn enhance the learning process for the student.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the need for creative and innovative learning. Educational institutions are in the process of adopting best practices in delivering creative, innovative, and quality education through the use of computing devices. This has resulted in a focused approach toward the global integration of various educational institutions, thereby enabling them to share their knowledge base and resources to promote interaction among students and teachers.
