“Increase in government funding in education sector resulted in construction of new education facilities and the support of a wide range of innovative development and reform programmes formulated by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education pushed the growth of Qatar Education Market.”

Analysts at Ken Research in their latest publication “Qatar Education Market Outlook to 2023- By K-12 Education, Higher Education, and Test-Preparation Education Market” believe that the increase in number of private and public universities and higher investments by the Qataris government will drive growth in the Qatar Education Market in the future. Growth in the sector has also been fuelled by the increasing number of scholarships being offered by the Ministry of Qatar and emphasizing more on female education. The market has witnessed a positive CAGR of 4.6% in terms of revenues during the forecasted period 2013-2018.

Growth Potential: Qatar education market has witnessed an increase in its overall revenue in the past few years, at a positive CAGR from 2013 to 2018. The major growth drivers of the Qatar Education market are the improvement in the Qatar education system, increasing number of expatriates in Qatar and a rising desire for higher studies. Expats are a major reason for the market growth as they make up nearly 85-88% of the population and they prefer sending their children to private schools owing to better teaching standards and international curriculum being taught in the private schools. The K-12 market makes up the vast majority of revenues in the education sector, with the highest revenues coming from Primary schools, followed by Preparatory, Pre-Primary and Secondary schools. The shift to private schools has led to new establishments of private schools in the country which are offering better education platforms because of the increased competition among the private players.

Government’s Role: The Ministry of Qatar Education has offered various types of scholarships which encourages students to pursue education in Qatar. In Qatar, the government is improving the education system in order to make Qatar’s economy less reliable on its petroleum sector. The government has continued to encourage more number of public as well as international colleges to set up education institutes in the ‘Education City’ of Qatar and have also introduced reforms to increase investment in this sector.

Rising Prominence of E-Learning: The Qatari government is focusing on digitizing education in Qatar, by implementing and promoting online education portals in the country. The academic environment of Qatar has witnessed significant changes with the growing importance of information and the influence of instructional technologies (ICTs) on learning and teaching platforms.
