This market research report identifies suppliers like Ambow Education, New Oriental, TAL Education, and Xueda Education to be the key vendors in the private tutoring market in China. It also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by learning method (online and blended) and by courses (test preparation and subject specific).

Overview of the private tutoring market in China

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the private tutoring market in China to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 11% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the rise in the number of enrollments in graduate schools. It has been observed that an increase in the number of enrollments in graduate schools is directly related to the number of students enrolling for tutoring services. With the rise in the number of graduate enrollments, the number of students appearing for academic proficiency tests and Gaokao tests has also increased, as these examinations are prerequisites for students in China to enroll into the country’s regular higher education system. Students enroll in private tutoring services to get the maximum scores in the tests and to gain a competitive advantage over other students during admissions into premium institutions. Also, the increase in income of the middle-class population is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the private tutoring market in China during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the increase in the demand for mobile learning. The increase in the adoption of smartphones and tablets by the students and parents has led to the rise in popularity of m-learning methods. A huge population presents a huge student base for mobile-based tutoring services. Consequently, this has increased the scope for private tutoring service providers who want to introduce m-learning services for their users. Also, many tutoring service providers are implementing this education technology solution to enhance the learning process. This, in turn, is expected to augment growth in the private tutoring market in China in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The private tutoring market in China is highly fragmented due to the presence of several well diversified regional vendors. As a result, vendors are undergoing strategic alliances and spending significantly on marketing and advertising campaigns to brand their tutoring services and capture the interest of the upper-income strata of the Chinese households. The competitive environment of the market is likely to intensify further with increased service extensions, technological innovations, and M&A.  

Leading vendors in the market are –

  • Ambow Education
  • New Oriental
  • TAL Education
  • Xueda Education

Other prominent vendors in the private tutoring market in China include Juren Education Group, Manhattan Review, iTutorGroup, EF Education First, MandarinRocks, Web International English, Kaplan, Xiaozhan Jiaoyu, and Tutors in China.

Segmentation by learning method and analysis of the private tutoring market

  • Online private tutoring
  • Blended private tutoring

During 2016, the blended private tutoring dominated the private tutoring market and accounted for a major part of the overall market share. The ability of the blended learning to enable tutors to garner a larger learner base and offers them flexible teaching schedules is the key factor responsible for the dominance of this method in the Chinese market.

Segmentation by courses and analysis of the private tutoring market

  • Test preparation courses
  • Subject specific courses

In this market study, analysts have estimated the Americas to dominate the private tutoring market during the forecast period. The growing popularity of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) streams among the majority of students is the main factor for the dominance of this segment in the private tutoring market.
