Educational hardware market insights

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the education hardware market in India will grow at an impressive CAGR of over 20% during the forecast period. The education sector in India is experiencing significant changes owing to the recent transition and expansion in digital services. With the introduction of educational hardware, students will be able to replace traditional books with PCs, laptops and tablets. Of the all the devices available, tablets are projected to overtake laptops and PCs because of their portability. This change will be highest at the secondary school levels and even at colleges as tablets reduce the need for students to refer to textbooks for each subject.

Moreover, with the growing number of digital applications in the education sector, teachers will be able to engage students in gathering information from these applications. For instance, Microsoft India, which is in partnership with MBD Group, Acer, and Tata Teleservices, has launched bundled tablets to serve private schools. This increase in the adoption of tablets by the end users in the education sector will bolster the growth prospects for this market until the end of 2020.

Educational hardware market trends

Many schools and colleges are modifying their curricula to incorporate digital learning to keep pace with the rest of the world. Moreover, many universities are also developing academic curricula and databases on digital platforms to facilitate easy accessibility of study materials to the students. Students benefit immensely from having substantial sources and materials available to them whenever they need it.

Additionally, many schools also use open educational resources, which are a source of a wide range of materials in the form of videos. Tablets made available to students offer users the opportunity to program in languages like Python and C++. Incorporation of digital content is a trend that is here to stay and will boost market growth beyond the forecast period.
