Report Overview

The global educational robots market size was valued at USD 843.82 million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.8% from 2021 to 2028. Educational robots form an environment where children can interact with their environment and work with real-world problems; in this sense, educational robotics can be a great tool for children to have constructionist learning experiences. Students’ creative problem-solving and communication & interpersonal abilities can all improve as a result of working with them. As a result, these robots are widely used in special-education institutes, schools, and universities that provide higher education. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the global market in 2020 and key players are still struggling to recover from losses incurred during the pandemic.

U.S. educational robots market size, by application, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

The pandemic forced governments to seal global borders and temporarily shut industrial operations, markets, educational institutions, and other public places in 2020. The closure of training centers, universities, schools, and the restrictions imposed on import, export, and manufacturing led to a notable drop in sales of educational robots. In addition, the high initial investment costs associated with the purchase of educational robots could hamper the growth of the market.

However, the ongoing technological developments in the field of robotics and the widespread adoption of e-learning systems are expected to drive the growth of the market in the near future. The increasing adoption of robots for the improvement of kids’ communication skills is also boosting the product demand. In addition, factors such as a rise in the number of educational robot startups and increasing investments by non-government & government organizations in educational robotics, are expected to offer major growth opportunities to the market over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The higher education segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 36% in 2020 and is expected to maintain its leading position over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the complexities involved in building robots as older students are more rational thinkers and require complex input from the robot’s abilities. In addition, the increasing demand for robots in research and development projects that involve real-life applications is driving the market share of this segment.

The primary education segment accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing need to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) education to children under the age of 10 years to develop independent thinking, a comprehensive approach to learning, and encourage natural curiosity.

Product Type Insights

The global market has been segmented into humanoid and non-humanoid, based on product type. The non-humanoid segment accounted for the largest revenue share more than f 59% in 2020 and is expected to continue to dominate the market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the low cost of non-humanoid robots compared to humanoid robots. The growing demand for smart toys that can recognize faces, imitate actions, and communicate with children, while also enabling basic learning experiences, is also fueling the growth of this segment.

Global educational robots market share, by product type, 2020 (%)

The humanoid segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the high demand for humanoid robots due to their advanced features and increasing set of applications across various areas in the educational sector. Some of these applications include assisting teachers in classes, conducting classes, and helping researchers in various projects that have real-life implications.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of more than 32% and is anticipated to retain its position over the forecast period. The presence of major market vendors and high adoption of advanced technologies among the educational institutes owing to the rising popularity of activity-based education&changes in educational guidelines are the key factors driving the market growth in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.

The growth of the regional market can be attributed to the increase in investments made by governments and Non-government Organizations (NGOs) in the field of robotics. For instance, Robotex India, a non-profit organization, provides robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), STEAM, IoT, and Machine Learning (ML) skills to students in urban as well as rural areas of India. The initiative is supported and funded by Digital India, MSH, NSDC, Ministry of IT & Electronics Govt. of India, UNEP, European Union, FICCI FLO, and other international & national government bodies. The growing technological awareness in the region is also expected to fuel the market growth across the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market has a fragmented competitive landscape as it features various global and regional players. Leading industry players are adopting strategies, such as partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions & mergers, and agreements, to survive the highly competitive environment and expand their business footprints.
