Impact of COVID-19 on the Kids’ Tablets Market
COVID-19 has spread across various countries around the globe and has severely impacted the overall consumer electronics market. The partial or complete lockdowns in most countries have resulted in disrupted supply chains. People have been compelled to stay within their homes to contain the spread of the pandemic. The lockdowns have also resulted in the closing of schools and colleges. The concept of e-learning has evolved during the pandemic, due to which, kids are spending more time on smart devices connecting with their teachers at school and for entertainment. The prohibition of outdoor activities has increased children’s usage of mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones, driving the growth of the market. Besides, most of the schools in both developing and developed countries have started adopting the BYOD trend. This increase in the adoption of the BYOD trend to contain the spread of the pandemic is projected to boost the demand for the kids' tablets in the near future.
However, on the flip side, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, preventive measures have been taken by the governments, such as shutting down of businesses, which has impacted the kids’ tablets market negatively. The decline in the sales of new tablets, smartphones, and laptops owing to the slowdown in the manufacturing sector is hindering the growth of the market. The halt in the launch of kids’ tablets is also affecting the market growth. Besides, the increasing demand for smartphones among the kids is expected to limit the growth of the kids’ tablets market. According to the MRFR analysis, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market in terms of revenue, as the schools in the region have already started adopting kid's tablets to support remote learning. The market is expected to grow significantly, post the pandemic.
