The global edtech and smart classroom market size was valued at USD 115.80 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 133.55 billion in 2023 to USD 433.17 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 18.3% during the forecast period.

The education sector has immense opportunities for growth today. It is a fast-evolving industry as institutes and learners have realized the value of a holistic learning environment and are continuously investing in it. According to the education intelligence provider HolonIQ, around 3% of global education expenditure is allocated to digital infrastructure. It also states that digital transformation's significant potential is expected to reach USD 10 trillion by 2030, up from USD 6 trillion in 2018. This is likely to support the adoption of edtech and smart classroom solutions in the coming years.


Mobile Learning Gained Traction amid COVID-19

Innovators and governments invested billions of dollars in the education sector, enabling the edtech and smart classroom industry to gain pace during the pandemic. Online learning applications are becoming increasingly popular, with millions of users worldwide. Other types of educational technology, such as e-textbooks, curriculum management software, administration, and communication platforms, have improved their effectiveness. In addition, the price of edtech gadgets and the internet data required to use them has been reduced.

In addition, smart education solution providers, as well as other telecom companies and the government, have moved to ensure that low-income students can take online classes. For instance,

• In 2020, Telkomsel, an Indonesian cellular network operator, announced plans to provide 500,000 smartphones to kids and 30GB of free data per month to users of Ruangguru, a K-12 learning app.

• In 2020, Starhub, a Singapore-based telecommunications company, offered low-income students free broadband subscriptions, and the Ministry of Education distributed 3,300 pieces of equipment to low-income students.

Social Distancing Prompts Stakeholders to Focus on Distance Learning Programs

Distance learning became one of the most significant developments in the e-classroom industries due to the closure of educational institutes during the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic has significantly changed the way information is taught and learned. Learners are transitioning to digital learning concepts via digital platforms as a result of social distancing norms. Despite the reopening of several educational institutions, the trend of distance learning is likely to continue over the next few years. As a result, the demand for online educational platforms is growing. Distance learning might take the form of a slide-based online activity or an online course that helps learners gain the necessary skills.


Growing Investments in the Education Sector to Spur Market Opportunities

The global market has witnessed a rapid shift in recent years, owing to the widespread adoption of mobile technology and increased education spending. For instance, investments in VC-backed education firms increased in 2020, when USD 14.6 billion was committed globally. This is an increase from USD 7 billion in 2019. Articulate raised USD 1.5 billion for corporate training technology, while BYJU’S raised USD 460 million for K-12 individualized learning programs, extending the momentum into 2021. Similarly, education tech startups focused on skill development have received a bunch of costs. For instance, Roblox, an online gaming platform that teaches programming, raised USD 150 million in investment in February 2020. Such major investments and budgets are likely to drive the edtech and smart classroom market growth during the projected period.

Reduced Costs of Internet Data and Online Learning Material to Accelerate Market Growth

Increasing mobile penetration and the low cost of e-learning materials are seen as game-changer in the education industry's growth. In terms of mobile and internet penetration, Europe, the U.S., and emerging countries lead the trend. Meanwhile, significant growth is expected from emerging markets, with mobile as an essential device for acquiring knowledge. Therefore, the market is anticipated to witness booming growth in the near future.


High Cost of Infrastructure and Lack of Technical Skills to Impede the Market Growth

Smart classroom infrastructure is expensive, such as smart equipment, including PCs, projectors, tablets, and various complex software. Furthermore, to stay up to date with software advancements and modifications, educational institutions may need to acquire a tech professional, which is an additional cost. Thus, the adoption of these solutions is likely to be hampered by such increased expenditures.

These factors are expected to increase the usage of mobile learning services, resulting in attractive prospects for market-leading players.

The smart classroom segment is expected to account for a considerable share of the market. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools, universities, and other educational institutions were closed. Owing to this, the global market experienced a revenue decline for the financial year 2020-2021.
