Educational Robots Market Growth & Trends
The education sector has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The several modifications brought into the educational system due to the pandemic allowed students to stay at home and continue their education. However, these deprived students of first-hand experience due to the lack of physical learning opportunities. The industry suffered significantly as universities, schools, and training centers were required to remain shut for a long time. The pandemic also impacted the supply chains of educational robot manufacturers leaving another negative impact on the industry.
Nevertheless, the market is expected to benefit from the initiatives taken by several educational institutes to educate students and provide hands-on experience on robotics. Increased investments in robotics by several governments are also expected to drive the demand in the near future. For instance, in August 2019, the Indian government allocated USD 436.4 million to aid research in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, and Internet of Things (IoT), and other advanced technologies to create an AI ecosystem.
