Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • An influx of new operators increased competition and limited profit growth
  • Quality concerns about public education have driven demand for tutoring services
  • The convenience and value provided by online services will increase competition
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Funding under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program and greater competition among high school students for college admission have boosted demand for tutoring and test preparation services. In the five years to 2021, the tutoring and test preparation segment will continue to lead the industry's performance, but the trend of more students enrolling in discretionary services will likely boost revenue. Additionally, improving per capita disposable income will support this segment's recovery. However, profit growth will be hampered by a growing number of online competitors, which will significantly contribute to price competition.

    Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The Tutoring and Driving Schools industry has a low level of capital intensity. IBISWorld estimates that for every dollar spent on wages, industry operators will spend $0.07 in capital investment. Capital investment is mainly in technology systems and vehicles. Over the past five years, capital intensity declined slightly. Capital investment declined partly due to establishments being able to rent premises on an as-required basis; particularly for those businesses offering short-term courses (i.e. first-aid training and self-defense). Furthermore, during the recession establishments delayed upgrading their equipment and vehicles, in an effort to cut operating expenses.
