Frost & Sullivan has also explained some of the latest technologies will shape up the global education market.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Technology vendors, educational institutes, and service providers are investing a large amount of time, capital, and resources developing embedded AI applications and other AI-enabled supportive products. The government plays a vital role in accelerating the adoption of educational AI systems by creating an investment-friendly environment and regulation policies that will favor the education ecosystem.

Mixed Reality

The rising popularity of mixed reality products, such as HoloLens and its ability to provide an experiential learning experience through realistic environment view, will be the main driving factor for this technology over the next five years. The US mixed reality education market is expected to cross the $6 billion mark by 2022.


Telepresence robots and teachable robotic agents are key emerging platforms in the educational sector. Robots enable personalized and remote learning and improve interactivity, thereby providing a new learning experience. Robot control and teaching modules and their use in pre-schools are key focus areas. Multi-purpose robots are likely to gain attention from the educational sector in the longer term.

“With the proliferation of remote education systems, an increase in the demand for technologies such as cloud computing is imminent. Infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service are poised to evolve as key business models in the educational sector,” said Sudeep Basu, Innovation Services Practice Leader at Frost & Sullivan.
