Potential of education market in KSA

The KSA education market offers significant scale potential. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% by 2030 due to;
  • Population growth
  • Increased enrollment in Private Schools
  • Privatization/ Government initiatives
  • Above all, there is a drive for improved quality

Challenge & opportunity

At the same time the Covid-19 pandemic has created pressure on existing school financials and fragmented operational strategies. Existing school operators are exploring funding options and potential exit/consolidation. International investors & school operators have been interested in the market but have largely adopted a monitoring strategy. The focus on quality is forcing the hand of some operators which creates opportunity for local and international investors & school operators in terms of school improvement followed by consolidation/platform growth and ultimate disposal.

In this context Emkan have the opportunity to build on its reputation amongst private sector clients and its experience with the KSA public sector to offer support in education acquisition/sales, investment and real estate, and to introduce relevant partnerships.
