Higher Education Segment to Hold the Largest Share in the Student Information System Market, Backed by Increasing International Student Mobility for Postgraduation

Thu, 18 July 2019 7:22

Market Overview

Student Information Systems (SIS) store and track all student information, attendance records, grades, and other relevant information. SISs are used by school administrations and students to communicate all pertinent information regarding students’ status. The software is similar to digital dropbox, but for student-related information. It has now become a vital tool for both institutions and parents, as well as for students who can use it to acquire access student information, make monetary transactions, and interact with the school management and functionaries.  

The software benefits institutional staff, parents, and students alike; some of the prime advantages associated with it are:

  • Information storage
  • Facilitate communication between parents and teachers
  • Facilitate communication between students and faculty
  • Facilitate interdepartmental communication
  • Handle student admissions
  • Improve security
  • Billing and payment processing
  • Reporting


Based on the end-user, the student information system market is segmented into K-12 and higher education. The higher education segment holds a larger share in the student information system market.  According to the data presented by UNESCO in 2018, there were around 4.8 million international students in comparison to 2 million in 2000. According to an estimation by OECD, global student mobility is anticipated to reach 8 million by 2025, attributed to the increasing demographic dividend in emerging economies such as China and India. Increasing number of universities and colleges, acquisition of educational hardware such as interactive hardboards and tablets, implementation of social learning, and gamification are collectively expected to drive the student information system market globally. Additionally, regional and political developments in the education sector will eventually impact student enrollment and are expected to validate the exponential growth of the student information system market during the forecast period.

Based on deployment, the student information system market can be segmented into cloud and on-premise. Cloud-based deployment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, as many organizations are deploying cloud-based SIS solutions to improve mobility and scalability.
