The independent mmb Institute publishes the only annual market survey on the German e-learning industry in its mmb Branchenmonitor survey. The survey takes a look at developments in industry revenues, number of employees, e-learning business sectors and the provider landscape, and imc is the full-service provider with the highest turnover.

Saarbruecken, 10.12.2020

The independent, private research and consulting institute, mmb Institute, put the development of the e-learning industry in Germany under the microscope for the 13th time. The 2019 figures from 40 providers of education were assessed with regard to the development of their sales volume, number of employees and share of turnover in the e‑learning business sectors. This was used to create a ranking of the most important German e‑learning providers.

Compared to the previous year, imc improved its overall ranking by two places and achieved the third highest turnover. This makes imc the most successful full service provider offering both learning technologies and individual learning content and consulting.


The Branchenmonitor survey first shows the total turnover followed by a breakdown into six additional sub-categories which are sorted according to business sector. imc secured 1st place in the "creation/enhancement of digital learning content" category. The Saarland-based provider also consistently ranks among the leaders in other fields such as "adaptation services for e‑learning content and software" or "tools for e-learning".
