Education Sector in Saudi Arabia to 2018 — Market Size and Intelligence Report A BOUT THE R EPORT The report ‘Education Sector in Saudi Arabia to 2018 — Market Size and Intelligence’ discusses the current and forecasted market size of the Saudi Arabia’s education sector.

Various regulations pertaining to education in Saudi Arabia are also mentioned in the report, along with the processes and guidelines of setting up and operating private schools and colleges. The report concludes with the profiles of major investment companies, which have invested in Saudi Arabia’s education sector. E XECUTIVE S UMMARY Saudi Arabia has emerged to be one of the major education markets in the GCC region. The country — which spends approximately 25% of its total fiscal spending, and 7.6% of its GDP on education — caters to approximately 8.5 million people, across various levels of education. With an enrollment ratio of approximately 106% for k–12 education, and approximately 41% for higher education, Saudi Arabia has a high literacy rate — with only 5.6% of the people above 15 years being illiterate. Besides high government spending, other factors that are driving the growth of Saudi Arabia’s education sector are the increase in population and income levels. Further, increasing number of expatriates, and government’s efforts to reduce unemployment are also resulting in expansion of the sector. ©Indalytics Advisors Pvt. Ltd l www.indalytics.com l 6
