This competitive analysis examines how K-12 instructional materials providers are faring in light of various market environmental factors. Obviously, the biggest environmental factor currently is the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted almost every aspect of the delivery of education in the U.S. How companies responded to the needs of K-12 schools is defining how those businesses are progressing into a changing future. Their response also demonstrated the enormous interaction and connections between industry participants and the schools.

One of the most interesting points about the pandemic is how it is had propelled the transition to a more digital education in U.S. schools. What is reflected in this analysis is the change in the pace of change within the companies themselves as they transition to a more digital future.

The transition to digital is by no means complete or even completely determined, but the actions of schools, the federal government and the companies themselves indicate the market and industry are further along the transition path.

In this report, Simba looks at several comparative factors as a guide to how the industry is faring. These factors are:

  • How companies responded to market need the pandemic and how they took care of their own business health.
  • Shifting positioning through mergers and acquisitions in 2020 and the first half of 2021.
