Increasing demand for higher education continues to drive the market 

The global soft skills management market is majorly driven due to rising awareness and adoption of skill development training programs. Improved development rates in secondary and primary schools is also one of the major factors resulting in increasing demand for higher education. As more students complete cycles of secondary education, they look forward to higher education to prepare themselves for new professions and life opportunities. Growing number of enrolments for higher education indicates growth in number of graduates that are ready to join the workforce of the economy. These graduates/post graduates are expected to master the soft skills suitable for the job role the recruiter is looking for. This compels students to enroll themselves in soft skills training programs, thus supporting the growth of the market.

As the number of students passing out each year is expected to increase, it is estimated that the market will expand at a significant pace. However, the global soft skills management market is challenged mainly by the fact that there is lack of awareness of soft skill development training courses, especially online asynchronous courses, in the under developed countries and in some economies of the developing countries.
