Report Overview

The global educational robot market size was valued at USD 928.2 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.4%, from 2022 to 2030. The growth can be ascribed to the increasing adoption of educational robots as they form an interactive learning environment for the students allowing them to work with real-world problems. These robots play a key role in enhancing students’ communication, interpersonal, and problem-solving abilities. As a result, the increased adoption of these robots in special-education institutes, schools, and universities is expected to transform the outlook of the educational robots market over the coming years. The market growth is being further propelled by ongoing technological advancements and the widespread adoption of e-learning platforms.

U.S. educational robot market size, by product type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Besides, factors such as an increase in the number of companies manufacturing educational robots coupled with growing investments from non-government and government organizations are creating lucrative opportunities for the market. In 2022, the Ministry of National Education of France recently bought 1,750 robots from Blue Frog Robotics & Buddy to help hospitalized or homebound children to interact with their peers in classrooms remotely.

COVID-19 impact

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the educational robots market in 2021 as the pandemic urged the enforcement of lockdown restrictions across different parts of the world. It severely affected the industrial operations and supply chains resulting. Moreover, the temporary closure of universities, schools, and training centers, led to a notable drop in sales of educational robots. However, the global health crisis also led to the increased adoption of online learning tools, creating new opportunities for educational robots.

Product Type Insights

The non-humanoid segment of the educational robots market accounted for the largest revenue share of nearly 59.0% in 2021 due to increased product adoption driven by rising demand for smart toys that imitate actions, recognize faces, and communicate with children. These toys also allow basic learning experiences, which is favoring segmental growth further.

The humanoid segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate from 2022 to 2030 owing to heightened product demand on account of its advanced features and wide range of applications in the education domain. Some of these applications comprise conducting classes, assisting teachers in classes, and assisting researchers in various projects with real-life implications.

Application Insights

The higher education segment accounted for the highest revenue share of over 36% in 2021 and is estimated to witness considerable growth by 2030. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for robots in research and development projects involving real-life applications. According to a 2019 study published by the University of Magdalena, the incorporation of robotics as educational tools in higher education has shown an innovative mechanism for the improvement of physics, mathematics, and control software development.

Global educational robot market share, by application, 2021 (%)

The primary education segment accounted for a significant market share of around 23.0% in 2021 owing to the growing prominence of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) based education to children aged below 10 years. STEAM-based learning helps in developing a comprehensive approach to learning, independent thinking, and encouraging natural curiosity.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2021 with a revenue share of more than 32.0% and is expected to grow exponentially over the forecast period. The growth can be ascribed to the strong presence of various major companies in the region. Besides, a greater inclination toward advanced technologies among educational institutes coupled with the growing significance of activity-based education is further favoring the expansion of the regional educational robots market.

Educational Robot Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is estimated to observe a significant CAGR over the forecast period owing to increasing investments from governments and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) toward robotics. For instance, Robotex India, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing STEAM, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and IoT skills to students across the urban and rural parts of India. The initiative has been supported by Digital India, NSDC, MSH, Ministry of IT & Electronics (Govt. of India), UNEP, FICCI FLO, European Union, and other national and international organizations.
