Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said that outsourcing of e-learning content is one of the trends spurring growth for the market. Online education providers and organizations outsource their needs for e-learning content. Different software enables the easy accessibility of online educational content developed by the companies for the educational institutes. There is a host of companies that develop e-learning content for other online educational providers. Earlier, it was done by the companies themselves. However, the process was time consuming, required the expertise of skilled professionals, and was expensive. As a result, the demand for outsourcing of e-learning content to professional agencies has increased rather than developing it in-house.

According to the report, growing need for interactive learning methods is a key driver aiding to the growth of this market. The increased use of computers and the growing need for computer skills in workforce have forced the governments worldwide to create an interactive learning environment to ensure that students are prepared to meet the industry's demands. The demand for interactive display systems is high in schools and graduate courses because of the growing use of mobile devices such as electronic dictionaries, particularly in Asian countries such as Japan and China. The students and teachers prefer display devices as these can offer a wide range of aligned services and help to increase the performance level. The increased demand for display devices such as LCDs, LED displays, and e-paper are driving the growth of the global electronic dictionary market.

Further, the report states that increased use of mobile devices in education is challenge the market is facing. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment is expensive. With advances in technology in the education sector, textbooks are gradually being replaced by digital devices such as PCs, tablets, and laptops. This leads to the development of more functional applications in the field of education. Tablets are one of the most advanced and user-friendly digital modes used in the learning process. Tablets have changed the method of interaction and communication among teachers and students. Tablets allow the storage of a large volume of information that a student can access at any time. At a secondary or higher education level, tablets reduce the need for a student to refer to many textbooks for each subject.
