Malaysia’s E-Learning Income is Expected to Exceed USD 2 trillion


“With the rise of a new government in Malaysia, coupled with growing improvements in ICT technology shows a growing positive trend for E-Learning Technologies as well as E-Learning Content creators over the coming years.”

Changing Political Scenario

With the end of 2018, the Malaysian government had a change in its ruling party after 60 years, to the PAKAPAN HARAPAN. This government has expressed its visions to improve ICT in Malaysia and focus of improving and digitizing education.

This Pro E-Learning stance the government has taken indicates a very positive trend for the future of E-Learning in Malaysia. As the government takes efforts to standardize quality of E-Learning content, more students and vocational users will use E-Learning Tools and shift from traditional learning to digital learning.

Increasing Number of Corporate

Corporate companies as end users will represent a significant source for demand for E-Learning Tools and Content in the near future. The number of corporate companies increased from 6.3 million in 2013 to 8.1 Million in 2018 and is expected to reach 12 million by 2023. Corporate companies look for E-Learning solutions to lower the cost of their training and development, and provide a conductive hub for accessing, editing and adding E-Learning content. They are value conscious and are ready to invest to get quality E-learning content and tools and thus will become a potent source of revenue for E-Learning providers.

Increasing Number of University and Private school Enrollments

Malaysia is expected to witness a major rise in enrollments of students into Private K-12’s and HEI’s (Higher Education Institutes). The Enrollments of Private K-12’s will rise from 511 Thousands in 2018 to 952 thousands in 2023; similarly, in HEI’s the number of enrollments will increase from 1.3 Million in 2018 to 1.6 million in 2023. These numbers indicate a large pool of potential customers. Schools and Universities will try to adopt E-Learning tools to accommodate for the rise in demand for Education services, by promoting distance learning as a viable course option. Not only in schools and universities, students might also opt to take E-Learning courses for home tuitions and vocational use.
