Education Computing Devices Market Research, 2032
The global education computing devices market size was valued at $101.3 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $368.1 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 14.1% from 2023 to 2032.
Laptops, computers, and mobile phones have developed into effective learning aids both in and out of the classroom. Mobile computers have increasingly been introduced into educational settings during the previous two decades. Most people carry their own personal compact computers with exceptional computing capabilities, such as laptops, personal digital assistants (PDAs), tablets, cellphones, personal computers (PCs), and e-book readers because of advancements in mobile technology. One-to-one computing is a great learning tool for conventional classrooms and outside informal learning owing to its high processing power and mobility, along with wireless connections and context-aware technology.
The ease of accessibility and flexibility that digital learning offers are considered to be the main drivers boosting the growth of the education computing devices market. In recent decades, digital learning has revolutionized education computing devices. The overall growth of the education computing devices sector is being driven by low-cost e-learning platforms, enhanced student involvement, and other interesting factors of e-learning approaches. The user may get a lot of information in one place because of growing technical advancements like Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS), which effectively integrate content generation, publication, and analysis. Also, cutting-edge technology, LMS, gives online learners tracking and access to the learning materials so they can manage them all effectively. The expansion of the education computing devices market is anticipated to be driven by such technological advancements. The proliferation of the Internet is increasing, high-speed Internet is becoming more widely available at reasonable prices, electronic gadgets are exploding, and education PCs' simple user interfaces are creating profitable chances for the education computing devices market growth. Non-profit organizations are increasingly assisting youngsters in the field of education in a number of areas.
The expansion of the education computing device industry is being significantly hampered by a lack of qualified teachers who do not have knowledge about cutting-edge smart software and procedures as well as by subpar facilities and infrastructure in some regions around the globe. Increasing time spent in front of screens and prolonged computer use while learning may have an adverse effect on a person's general health owing to poor posture, eye difficulties, and headaches. The higher initial investment costs for implementing systems and software in the educational sectors, particularly in emerging regions is projected to be one of the major factors hampering the education computing devices market opportunity during the forecast period.
Education computing devices can be leveraged to provide assistive technologies that support students with disabilities and special educational needs. Opportunities exist for the development of accessibility features, assistive software, and hardware adaptations that facilitate inclusive education and ensure equal access to educational opportunities for all students. Text-to-speech software converts written text into spoken words, allowing students with visual impairments or reading difficulties to access written information. Speech-to-text tools also enable students with motor disabilities or writing challenges to convert their spoken words into written text. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices assist individuals with communication impairments or non-verbal students by providing alternative means of communication. These devices can range from simple picture-based communication boards to sophisticated speech-generating devices that convert symbols or text into spoken words.

The education computing devices market is segmented into Product Type and End-user.
By product type, the smartphones sub-segment dominated the market in 2022. Technology is rapidly advancing in all parts of modern society, including education. Information and communication technology is increasingly being used in educational activities as a teaching and learning. Academic institutions, like schools, colleges, and other online learning platforms place a high value on the use of new technology to aid their success, particularly in the areas of teaching and learning. Smartphones have a variety of applications that can help with the teaching and learning process, including general software like Excel, Word, and PowerPoint and other applications like mathematical problem-solving software, language learning, and others.
By end user, the higher secondary sub-segment dominated the global education computing devices market share in 2022. Computing devices facilitate multimedia learning experiences in higher secondary education. Students can access educational videos, simulations, virtual labs, and interactive learning modules to explore complex concepts in subjects like science, mathematics, and engineering. These interactive resources enhance understanding, visualization, and engagement with the curriculum. For instance, in 2022, Harappa Education, an online higher education start-up owned by upGrad, expanded its reach by launching its leadership programs in the U.S. and the UK. With a learner base of over 600,000 people, Harappa focused on the importance of soft skills that complemented technical degrees. By entering these new markets, Harappa aimed to cater to a wider audience and provide valuable leadership education to learners seeking to enhance their professional skills.
By region, North America dominated the global market in 2022. The region's improving economic situation and the government initiatives to expand infrastructure in the education and commercial sectors are some of the reasons driving the growth of the regional market. In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of laptop computers and wireless devices in schools, colleges, and institutions. Furthermore, North America has adopted augmented reality and virtual reality technology earlier than the rest of the world. Also, various counties in North America have provided interactive displays and interactive tables for students to study their areas of interest in schools and universities. All these are major factors projected to drive the regional education computing devices industry growth in the upcoming years.
