The new crown outbreak has brought some benefits to online education, but it has also increased competition in the industry. iiMedia Research believe that the domestic online education industry is about to enter the knockout stage, many enterprises, especially small and medium-sized enterprises are facing an existential crisis. How to make use of the current situation, improve the retention rate of enterprises, promote enterprise products out to sea is an important issue facing the development of the industry.
中国在线教育市场规模近五年来一直保持逐年增长的态势，iiMedia Research（艾媒咨询）数据显示，2019年在线教育市场规模已突破4000亿元。疫情期间，教育部提出“停课不停学、停课不停教”，推动了教育产业信息化变革的同时，也激发和释放出在线教育的潜在市场需求。尤其在下沉市场领域，在线教育行业的认知和渗透进程得到加快。iiMedia Research(艾媒咨询)数据显示，分地域来看，受访用户对各类在线教育服务的需求呈现出差异，一二线城市教育需求相对多元分散，低线城市用户需求更多集中在学科辅导和语言学习。且下沉市场用户群体对价格敏感度较高，整体付费能力以及付费意愿较一二线城市还有一定差距。艾媒咨询分析师认为，下沉蓝海市场空间广阔，但在线教育企业也面临诸多挑战，加大技术投入，利用AI赋能教育，降本提效，专注用户，将成为行业的主流趋势。拥有资金和技术能力的在线教育平台将更具发展优势。
The size of China's online education market has been increasing year by year for the past five years. According to data from iiMedia Research, the online education market has exceeded 400 billion yuan in 2019. During the Corona epidemic, the Ministry of Education proposed "suspended class, ongoing learning, ongoing teaching" ，which not only promoted the informatization reform of the education industry, but also stimulated and released the potential market demand for online education. Especially in the field of sinking market, the process of cognition and penetration of online education industry has been accelerated. According to the data of iiMedia Research, according to different areas, the respondents' demands for various online education services are different. The demand for education in first-tier and second-tier cities is relatively diversified, and the demand for users in low-tier cities is more concentrated in subject counseling and language learning. Moreover, the user groups in the sinking market are highly sensitive to prices, and the overall payment ability and willingness to pay are still far from those in first- and second-tier cities. According to iiMedia consulting analysts, the sinking blue ocean market is vast, but online education companies also face many challenges, using AI to empower education, reducing costs and improving efficiency, and focusing on users will become the mainstream trend of the industry in the future. Online education platforms with financial and technical capabilities will have more development advantages.

At present, the online education market for primary and secondary schools is confronted with a development opportunities, but there is still increased potential for improvement in product experience, the market competition pattern is uncertain, and companies that have advantages in user experience have opportunities to break through.
With the rapid development of Internet technology, increasing social attention to education, and continuous improvement in economic levels, the online education industry continues to grow.

With the strengthening of parents' education consciousness in 80s and 90s, the demand for quality education will become more urgent.
China's artificial intelligence industry is growing rapidly. It is expected that the scale of China's artificial intelligence core industry will exceed 100 billion yuan in 2030. The deposition of data, the optimization of algorithms, and the enhancement of computing power have laid a solid foundation for the commercial application of artificial intelligence technology. More and more traditional industries rely on artificial intelligence technology for transformation and upgrading, and they have attracted widespread attention. According to iiMedia Research data, the integrated development of artificial intelligence and finance, security, medical care, education and other fields has become the focus of attention of the public. 37.8% of the respondents said they knew the application of artificial intelligence in the financial field best; 39.3 % Of the respondents are most looking forward to the application of artificial intelligence in the medical field; 66.8% of the respondents are optimistic about the future development of artificial intelligence. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that with the continuous improvement of the segmentation and specialization of the artificial intelligence field, the commercialization of artificial intelligence will accelerate, but the information security risks and ethical issues brought about by rapid development cannot be ignored.
According to iiMedia Research, the number of kindergartens in China has increased year by year. It is expected to exceed 270 thousand in 2018. At the same time, the kindergarten market will reach 230 billion yuan. At present, the fees for kindergartens run by the citizens are expensive. According to the requirements of the generally beneficial goal, it is estimated that by 2020, the admission rate of generally beneficial kindergartens will reach 80.0%. Private kindergartens will be developed in the direction of high-end, with a view to bringing sustained and stable revenue.
With the continuous development of artificial intelligence and the deepening of the artificial intelligence industry, the number of Chinese artificial intelligence enterprises is also on the rise, but in the field of technology and application, there are challenges and risks of varying degrees. According to data from iiMedia Research, Chinese Internet users to try the will of the artificial intelligence technology is higher, but there are still 64.1% of Chinese Internet users think that there are risks of artificial intelligence, 40.3% of Internet users think the biggest hazards posed by artificial intelligence is a personal information leakage, 63.0% of netizens think that artificial intelligence technology has threat to humans, 38.6% of Internet users think that big data is the main cause of a threat to human development. For the development of artificial intelligence technology in the future, although the situation is all the way high, but still can not relax vigilance. A new round of industrial revolution brought by artificial intelligence has come, and the imbalance between education and technological development will inevitably lead to the emergence of unemployment. For the new demand brought by artificial intelligence, only keep learning can not be ahead of technology.
