Educational Robots Market Size and Overview

Globally, the size of educational robots market is projected to reach USD 1540.28 Million by 2023 driven by the smallest market segment but is expected to exhibit a high potential and help in majorly transforming the education service industry. There is a huge variety in the robots that are being manufactured by the key educational robots market players followed by their deployment to conduct different kinds of educational activities. These kinds of robots are provided with the required training and education that will help them assist the research and developments undertaken during the period, as well. 

Educational robots are one of the newest technological developments that will help in the enhancement of educational services and improvise the trends that will help in better understanding, concept clarity, and providing first-hand and practical experience to the students. Automation is increasing and enhancing its operations across various verticals and the education sector is one of them. A collaborative effort of automation and education services is likely to help the market achieve new heights and set new and achievable standards for providing quality education that is backed with the required skill, expertise, and knowledge to enhance the horizon of the students and other seekers of academics.

Educational Robots Market COVID 19 Analysis

The education industry has been one of the major economic sectors that have witnessed the considerable changes brought in by the pandemic. The changes are such that students have to sit home and complete their exposure. The unavailability of physical learning is barring them from gaining the first-hand experience. The switch to online classes has made students bound to online learning only and experimentation is just fixed and limited to theory and books. Due to the pandemic, the lockdown has been imposed and hence, the students are deprived of physical experience. Educational robots have been deployed but are of no use since the pandemic has hit the educational robots market operations.

However, the global regions and their governments are investing in the development of a strong and sturdy educational infrastructure that is backed with emerging technological and innovative trends. Also, the market players are manufacturing these robots that are being deployed to render a better learning experience.

Educational Robots Market Dynamics

  • Drivers

The educational robots market service also has humanoid robots. This is the smallest market segment but is expecting to exhibit a high potential and help in majorly transforming the education service industry. These robots are further, showing their skill and excellence in the field of medicine and healthcare services. They are gaining recognition by working as companion robots. MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are on the way to developing a machine learning technique that can be recognized as C-Learn. This allows the non-coders to help and teach robotic movements and tasks by helping with the basic information related to the objects that are manipulated and then, demonstrations for the robot for a single demo are organized.

  • Restraints

Apart from the kind of momentum that is likely to be enjoyed by the humanoid robots, the cost of acquiring them lands between USD 7,000 to USD 50,000. Such an amount cannot be afforded by all. The TIAGo humanoid robot that belongs to the company named PAL Robotics from Spain, costs an approximate value of USD 50,000. The cost of acquiring these, when collaborated with the integrated costs and the cost related to the peripherals, is helping them emerge as a costly investment for education service providers and institutes.

  • Technology Analysis

The researchers that belong to the educational robot’s software, are intensively working on the development of methods that will help in understanding the way of transferring robot programming to another humanoid robot. Humanoids have an easy way of creating empathetic links with small children that help them in inspiring and pushing them for physical and intellectual activities for the development of their motor skills on a global scale during the forecast period that ends in 2028. Also, these robots help in developing social and emotional skills through various study means and helping the students embrace their inside thoughts and feelings.
