The infants early education market is on the rise. Since 2012, the government has repeatedly mentioned the development of early education in relevant policies and regulations. In particular, on May 10, 2019, the State Council issued guidance on the nurturing industry, making early education a hot spot for investment. At present, the development of China's infant early education industry has problems such as low success rate, difficulty in content research and development, difficulty in scale expansion, lack of teachers and management talents. Although China's economically developed regions such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangdong pay more attention to early childhood education, the infant enrollment rate in China is only 4.3%, which is still far from the average enrollment rate of 33.2% in OECD countries. There is great potential for development in the future.
With the increase of basic education population, talent demand and per capita disposable income in the future, the market scale of quality education will gradually expand. It is expected that the compound growth rate of the industry will reach 20.5% and the market scale will reach 631.32 billion yuan in 2022. AI media consulting analysts believe that the quality education industry has a broad market space, and the industry track may be more subdivided in the future. For example, science and technology, sports and art will be further classified and become more targeted. Taking sports as an example, many enterprises will enter such subdivided tracks as football and archery, forming many small and beautiful categories. In the process of the development of various categories, leaders will gradually appear.
