Although India and Indonesia are expected to see fastest expansion, China to drive regional growth

India and Indonesia are expected to see CAGR growth of 9% and 7% respectively over 2017-2030. Nevertheless, China is forecast to remain the largest education industry in the world and record a CAGR of 5% over2017-2030, due to the abolition of 1-child policy and 13th Five-Year Plan for Education initiatives.

South Korea to witness moderate growth, while Japan is shrinking

However, the industry in Japan is projected to shrink due to demographic challenges and weak economic outlook.
