The school information management system is expected to reach a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The growth is majorly driven by increased digitization in the education industry, growing inclination towards e-learning, and emphasis on improving the quality of education. However, the lack of trained users might hamper the growth of the market.
- The nature of teaching and learning has become much more collaborative in recent years.

The software will integrate the institution’s data, enabling transparency across departments, enhancing how data is shared to both staff and students, and will also streamline and simplify administrative task processes.
- The recent COVID-19 outbreak also negatively impacted the education industry worldwide. With the ongoing lockdown, schools and colleges have come to a complete halt and have started implementing online solutions to continue the scheduled curriculum and assessments for the year. In this scenario, school information systems are expected to grow in countries having good network infrastructure and internet penetration. However, these systems cater to comparatively fewer schools concerning the current demand for education, and thus cost might become one of the significant factors hindering the growth of the market as this may result in loss of opportunity in emerging countries.
