Key Findings: Learning and Development Services Market
The learning and development services market is expected to witness category spend growth of more than USD 139 billion between 2018-2023, with spend momentum accelerating at a CAGR of 7.45% during the forecast period. This increase in the procurement of these services is primarily attributed to the growing demand from the IT, BFSI, and construction sectors with the IT sector accounting for about 20% of the overall learning and development market size share. The rapid adoption of advanced technologies such as Blockchain, AI, and Big Data Analytics makes it imperative for the IT enterprises to train their employees to sharpen their skills related to the development, application, design, and implementation of these technologies. Highly vulnerable to risks like money-laundering, financial crimes, technological glitches, and enterprise-wide risks, the BFSI sector is exhibiting a high demand for learning and development services pertaining to anti-money-laundering measures, sales, budget management, and cash flow management. Motivated by the growing demand, service providers are implementing innovation into the services to facilitate buyers with value and cost-saving opportunities. They are developing cloud-based learning and development services that offer centralized learning delivery to buyers. Their provision of enterprise talent management platforms helps to streamline learning management, automate the training and evaluation of employees, and integrate performance and compensation systems with the L&D solutions. Such innovations are also playing key roles in boosting the spend growth of the learning and development services market on a global scale.
North America and Europe are accounting for a cumulative spend of more than 60% in the learning and development services market and will continue dominating the global market during the forecast period. Innovations made in the learning and development services model are attracting almost 40% of the learning and development budget. These innovations include adaptive learning and the adoption of VR in the L&D process for buyers' employees. Moreover, the BFSI, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors in the US are facing serious workforce shortages that is creating the requirement to train existing employees and increase their work efficiency. This is favoring the demand growth of the learning and development services market in the region to a great extent. Employment opportunities in the SMEs and SMBs in Europe will create substantial demand for learning and development services in Europe. Similarly, the growing number of businesses in APAC will increase the demand for technical and vocational skills, which will consequently supplement the spend growth of the learning and development services market.
