According to a new market study on "MENA Edtech Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Sector and End User," the market is expected to grow from US$ 2,825.52 million in 2023 to US$ 5,487.71 million by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 14.2% from 2023 to 2028. The report provides trends prevailing in the market along with drivers and restraints.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for online learning has increased tremendously. As online education is more accessible, it helps solve the classroom size problem. Due to the increasing adoption of online education, the government in MENA has increased investments in online learning. In February 2023, the Government of UAE partnered with the Emirates Red Crescent to establish the Digital School Fund with US$ 27.22 million (AED100 million) during the World Government Summit 2023. Through this partnership, the government aims to financially support the Digital School’s programs and provide intelligent and flexible distance education to countries affected by disasters and crises. Similarly, in September 2020, the Government of Kuwait announced an investment of US$ 1.14 billion in facilities for e-learning programs and online learning platforms. Also, in June 2020, the Government of Turkey announced that the World Bank had approved a loan of US$ 160 million for the Safe Schooling and Distance Education Project to enhance the capacity of education system by providing e-learning to school-age children. The project consists of three components—emergency connectivity and IT infrastructure for education, digital content for safety and quality, and institutional capacity for education technology resilience. Also, the project will increase the use of online distance education platforms to almost 12 million K-12 students and will provide certified online training to around 900,000 teachers. Thus, the growing investments in online learning by the governments of various countries of MENA are boosting the growth of the edtech market.
