Educational Robot Market Growth & Trends

Educational robots serve as learning companions that utilize real-life educational models to help students obtain new skills by enhancing the learning process. Educational robots offer information in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM), as well as computer programming, linguistics, history, and geography. Moreover, these robots also help keep young students involved, delighted, and educated, as they comprise advanced mechanics, voice control, and gestures.

The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic seriously impacted the educational robots market as several modifications were introduced to the educational system enabling students to stay at home and continue their education. However, it deprived students of the hands-on learning experience. On the other hand, the temporary closure of universities, schools, and training centers and disrupted supply chains also made a serious effect on the industry.

The growth of the educational robots market will be further proliferated by favorable government initiatives across several countries. For instance, in 2022, the U.S. government increased funding for STEM activities. The funding for Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants increased to USD 1.3 billion, Career and Technical Education (CTE) to USD 1.4 billion, Supporting Effective Instruction State Grants to USD 2.2 billion, and 21st Century Community Learning Centers to USD 1.3 billion.

The high return on investment (ROI) for collaborative robots as compared to traditional industrial robotic system has paved way for their growth in recent years. In addition to this, the benefits derived from adoption of cobots for businesses of all sizes is the key factors driving the collaborative robot market. Many SMEs and large manufacturers that have deployed collaborative robots are benefiting in terms of general competitiveness, increased production, and enhanced quality of their products.

“Cobots with payload capacity up to 5 kg expected to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period”

Cobots with payload capacity up to 5 kg are expected to hold the largest share of the collaborative robot market during the forecast period. First-time users prefer low payload capacity cobots, which are cheaper and take up less space than robots with higher payload capacity. These cobots are often already fitted with grippers, reducing the hassle of integration and programming for the end user. Another benefit of these cobots is that they are easily re-deployable and take up minimal space when compared to higher payload cobots. Since most of the up to 5 kg payload capacity cobots are very lightweight, they are inherently safe and do not require force sensors, thereby reducing the hardware costs.

“Handling application to dominate collaborative robot market in 2021”

Handling application is expected to hold the largest share of the collaborative robot market in 2021. The handling application includes various sub-types such as material handling, machine tending as well as bin-picking which are currently booming. Handling tasks such as pick and place or palletizing are among the mundane and repetitive in nature for the human workers. Machine tending requires workers to stand for long hours beside a CNC or injection molding machine. Collaborative robots are able to automate a machine tending process during off hours without any supervision, boosting productivity. Besides, handling application has industry-wide usage in varied industries ranging from the automotive, electronics to furniture & equipment because of which is expected to register a fairly large amount of the market share in 2021.
