The online language learning market is changing at a rapid pace due to the globalization of the economy and adoption of cost-efficient technology-based products. The growth in this market is majorly driven by the globalization and growing need for communication across borders, growing E-learning market, COVID-19 impact, and penetration of artificial intelligence in e-learning. Further, the increasing spending on education sector, rising internet and mobile phone user base, and preference for multilingual employees by multinational companies provide huge growth opportunities for the players operating in the overall online language learning market. In addition, the flexible pricing structure and introduction of wearable technologies are the key recent trends in this market.

Globalization has brought people and cultures closer together. However, to survive and thrive in a global economy, companies must overcome language barriers and hence the global economy is shifting away from the English-speaking world, according to the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations. Also, according to Alexika (a provider of professional language services), it is observed that overseas consumers prefer information in their own language and it is estimated that 60% of online consumers hardly or never buy from English-only websites.

Moreover, 72.4% of customers are more likely to buy products that have information available in their native language.  In addition to this, the rising number of multinational companies globally is further boosting the demand for foreign language learning in an attempt to facilitate communication and performance across geographically diverse functions and business endeavors. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade And Development (UNCTAD), between 1990 and 2016, the total assets of MNC foreign affiliates grew 25-fold to $112 trillion, sales of MNC foreign affiliates increased seven-fold to $37.5 trillion, and the value of exports of MNC foreign affiliates quintupled to $6.8 trillion, while the number of people employed by foreign affiliates quadrupled to 82 million. This growth in multinational companies is contributing significantly to the growth of the trade and businesses among countries, ultimately leading to the growth of the online language learning market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the online language learning Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the education systems and businesses worldwide. As the cases rose, the government of all the nations has declared near closures of all schools and working spaces to mitigate the spread of the pandemic. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), nationwide closures are impacting over 60% of the world's student population, and as of June 2020, the pandemic affected 1.72 billion learners. Therefore, due to this lockdown measures, the online language learning market is seeing several innovations and free subscription based apps by companies to broaden their user base. For instance, in response to coronavirus and school closures, Busuu Ltd. (U.K.) provided access to online language learning lessons for kids. Similarly, Coursera is making popular Spanish-language courses available for free ranging from wellness to professional development.

In addition, amidst this pandemic, business leaders are compelled to make decisions impacting both the short and long term. To protect their employees and reduce the spread, the major goal of the companies was to suspend operations and eliminate the noncritical business travel during the outbreak. Also, most of the companies have allowed work from home, which is inevitable in current situation. This gave time to professionals to brush up their language skills and improve their professional abilities. Therefore, the pandemic proved to be a turning point for online language learning market and higher growth is expected over the next 12 months.
