Services for the Education Sector

India's GDP has grown at a CAGR of ~ 8.5% over FY2003-08. A robust performance by the services sector, which has been clocking strong double-digit growth rates over the past few years, has been primarily responsible for the high GDP growth rates recorded. The manufacturing sector has also grown at a decent rate in excess of 6-7% annually. This fantastic growth rate has been achieved due to the humongous talent pool available in India, which is a subset of its entire population. The biggest asset of any country is its people. India has a population if 1.1 billion, the second-largest in the world. However, India's literacy rate is just 61% and it ranks a disappointing 172nd in the world on this front. Thus, there is a short supply of educated manpower in India. In fact, there is a huge requirement of talent in the fields of Construction, Hospitality, IT Services, Retail, and Financial Services to name a few. We believe India will have to significantly gear up its educational infrastructure to meet this demand.


Education is primarily handled by the government through its school infrastructure and large Union Budget outlays. The government is also looking at the private sector in its quest to further improve the quality of education through Public-Private Partnerships. The Union Budgets have continuously chalked out a higher allocation for the Education System, up to 20% annual increase to Rs. 34,400cr during FY2009-10. The current private education market of ~US$ 38 billion is expected to grow to ~US$ 108 billion in the next 10 years at 11%. Pre-schools, K-12 Schooling and Higher Education will together represent ~2/3rd of the market. Overall, we believe Budget allocations and high spending by the Indian middle class on education are expected to fuel growth of private education companies in India.

India’s Higher education system is the third largest in the world after the USA and China. The Indian Higher Education system has been growing substantially post-Independence. High level of investment in higher education was a political-economic decision, designed to create a self-reliant economy in terms of human capital requirements. As of 2009, India has 20 central universities, 215 state universities, 100 deemed universities, 5 institutions established and functioning under the State Act, and 13 institutes which are of national importance. Other institutions include 16000 colleges, including 1800 exclusive women's colleges, functioning under these universities and institutions. The country has a low GER of 11.3%, as compared to 25% in developed countries. 185,000+ Indian students spend ~US$ 4 billion annually on education abroad. The current enrolment in Higher Education stands at ~14 million expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7%.

The Indian economy currently generates ~480 million jobs, of which 270 mn are in the agricultural sector, 65 mn in manufacturing and 145 mn in services. 90% of these jobs are ‘skill-based’ and require vocational training, but only 6% of the population receives any form of vocational training. There is a pronounced ‘skill gap’ both in terms of quality and quantity, due to an inadequate vocational and training infrastructure. Approximately 80 million jobs are expected to be created in India over the next 5 years, 75% of these new jobs will require vocational training.
