As students and teachers return to in-person learning, online education has come to a halt. While data show a decline in Education app installs in 2022, Education app revenue grew significantly, reaching $274 million in the United States in Q2 2022.
Today in this case study we are going to analyze a kids' education app's growth, to see how ASO World boosts this app's ranking in Google Play and App Store.
Revenue from educational apps continues to rise.
Education apps received 79 million US downloads in Q2 2022, a 7% year-over-year decrease. Despite this drop in adoption, Education app revenue increased by 183% year on year in Q2 2019. Duolingo was the No. 1 Education app in terms of downloads and revenue in Q2 2022. The app was responsible for a significant portion of the Education category's revenue growth.
Language rose to the top of the Education subcategory in the first eight months of 2022, gaining four points in market share over the same period in 2021.
The growth of the subcategory was primarily due to the success of Duolingo. Language, Kids Education, and Studying Tools were the top three Education app subcategories by U.S. consumer spending in 2022, with only a seven percentage point difference in market share.
Although apps in the Kids Education subcategory, such as Kiddopia and Epic, led Education apps in 2020, growth in the subcategory has since plateaued, while other subcategories have continued to grow.

Failure to do so will result in the app falling behind its competitors.
