Ciesco Sector Spotlight: EdTech, April 2024

Ciesco publishes its latest Sector Spotlight on EdTech.

The Education Tech (EdTech) sector continues to grow, driven by the recent advancements in AI and immersive learning technologies alongside the ongoing digitalisation of education institutions and corporate training programs. Notably, M&A activity with 4 deals of $1bn+ in the last 12 months is testament to the continued growth of the sector. Overall deal activity data saw a decline in VC & Growth Equity investments over the past 5 years, while M&A & Buyouts activity in 2023 remained consistent with levels previously observed in 2018-2020.

Drawing upon a variety of industry sources, expert insights and our own analysis, this review offers a comprehensive view of the evolving EdTech landscape. Key highlights include market trends, major players and buyers, M&A dynamics, fundraising activities, and public sector activity over the last 5 years.
