Educational Robot Market

Market Leadership - Educational Robot Market

The educational robot market is projected to grow from USD 1.3 billion in 2021 to USD 2.6 billion by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.1% from 2021 to 2026. Steady deployment of robots in manufacturing industries is facilitating the growth of robotic education and training centres. Growing demand for collaborative robots across education and industry segments is expected to promote new job opportunities in the industrial robot segment as well. Meanwhile, research and development on humanoid robots to transform the service industry. Introduction of industrial robot programming in high school education and the development of humanoid robots for children with special needs are expected to provide market opportunities for educational robots.

Although the educational robot market is growing at a steady pace, it is moderately competitive owing to the presence of several key global players, as well as several new players playing a key role in the growth of the market. Key strategies adopted by these players to enhance their product portfolios, increase their market share and expand their presence in the market mainly include new product launches and partnerships, collaboration & joint ventures. For instance, in December 2019, FANUC (Japan) launched two new collaborative robots at the iREX 2019: the CRX-10iA and CRX-10iA/L. The new CRX Series robots are significantly lighter than the CR Series collaborative robots. They can be used for easy installation on a broad range of applications, such as driverless transport systems or AGVs. The robots also offer a new, intuitive programming interface suitable for users with little programming experience. In September 2019, SoftBank Robotics Group (Japan) launched the AI commercial vacuum cleaner called Whiz in Hong Kong, Macau, and Singapore. Whiz is designed to boost operational productivity at commercial premises by automating the process of cleaning carpets and hard flooring without supervision. In May 2020, PAL Robotics has been part of a team of project partners working on the European project Co4Robots, to build a framework that supervises and coordinates multiple robots and humans working together (including robots with different capabilities) to accomplish required tasks. The project consortium consists of BOSCH (Germany), FORTH: Foundation for Research & Technology (Greece), KTH: Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), NTUA: The National Technical University of Athens (Greece), PAL Robotics (Spain), and UGOT: The University of Gothenburg (Sweden).
