The global social services market is valued at around $3 trillion in 2017 due to increasing government funding for developing nations and increasing number of women employees. Also utilization of technology in child day care centers and increasing applications of digital learning platforms are expected to boost the market during the forecast period.
In the report, the global social services market is divided into two segments. Educational services occupy the major share, accounting for more than 62% of the market and the remaining is attributed to the social assistance segment.
China was the largest country in the social services market in 2017, accounting for one-fifth of the market share. This was due to a large number of educational institutions, child day care centers and other social service establishments catering to a large population in the country.
