Market Dynamics

North America Learning Management System (LMS) Market Drivers:

Emergence of Mobile Learning and BYOD as a Business Trend

Due to the costs associated with traditional teaching methods, organizations worldwide opt for e-learning services for employee training and education. Bring your own device (BYOD) is rapidly becoming a global trend in which employees bring their own devices to work for work-related or other purposes, such as training and development. With the increase in digital technology adoption and preference for BYOD, businesses are concentrating on implementing LMS on smartphones for integrated employment training. Smartphones, laptops, tablets, and USB drives are the most prevalent examples of BYOD devices that employees bring to work. In addition, the BYOD concept provides advantages such as innovation, increased productivity, cost savings, and access to online training materials on employees' devices to facilitate intelligent learning. Corporate promotion of the BYOD culture is mandated by the compatibility of learning management systems with mobile devices and social learning.

North America Learning Management System (LMS) Market Restraints:

Insufficient E-Learning Infrastructure

The market development is anticipated to be restrained by the underdeveloped ICT sector and the lack of infrastructure essential for LMS platforms, particularly in developing nations. Poor internet access and networking in institutions, insufficient availability of software and hardware, infrastructure failure, and instructors' lack of time to instruct students on using LMSs are among the major obstacles in this field. The inability to obtain engaging content due to a lack of connectivity and bandwidth hinders learning, frustrates students, and complicates the training and learning process.

North America Learning Management System (LMS) Market Opportunities:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Implementation in Learning Management Systems

Implementing artificial intelligence in learning management systems will generate market expansion opportunities. Integrating artificial intelligence into LMS will enable periodic and gradual performance evaluations to classify students/users according to their abilities, paving the way for developing advanced and highly intuitive training programs. Artificial intelligence's intuitive and predictive development capabilities make it the ideal ally for virtual education through learning management systems.

Regional Analysis

North America is the most significant revenue contributor to the market globally and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.14% during the forecast period because LMS technology is already widely adopted, leaving little space for growth. In recent years, LMS providers have been observed collaborating with U.S. universities and organizations. Additionally, the U.S. government is undertaking numerous initiatives to improve the inefficiency of traditional learning modules. Several educational institutions in North America are making substantial investments to adopt the newest and most advanced learning technologies, thereby expanding the LMS market. Blackboard Inc., Cornerstone On-demand, Inc., Desire2learn Incorporated, and IBM Corporation are prominent market participants in the North American learning management systems (LMS) market; however, the market continues to consolidate around Blackboard, Canvas, D2L Brightspace, and Moodle – the "big four" in this space.
