Smart classroom market estimated to grow to Dhs26 billion by 2027

Widespread adoption of smartphones, interactive displays and other digital learning tools in classrooms is a key driver of the growth

Dubai, Nov 7, 2021: The Middle East and Africa edtech and smart classroom market is poised to grow to Dhs26 billion in 2027, driven by the adoption of edtech-focused products and solutions in classrooms across the region.

The data was culled from the ‘Middle East and Africa EdTech and Smart Classroom Market Forecast to 2027’ report published by Report Linker, a global business intelligence and market research solution. 

According to the report, the widespread adoption of smartphones, interactive displays and other digital learning tools in classrooms is a key driver of the growth. 

Matt Thompson, Project Director, Tarsus, organisers of the GESS portfolio of education exhibitions and conferences in the UAE, Turkey and Indonesia says that the region is home to a robust start-up ecosystem that is developing specific edtech solutions that integrate a wide range of technological innovations such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and Blockchain among others to provide immersive and engaging teaching-and-learning experiences in classrooms or in homes as a result of blended onsite and remote classes being implemented by schools.

Moreover, an IDC study earlier this year found that 72% of Gulf educational institutions brought forward their digital initiative roadmaps by at least a year. As a consequence, global suppliers have seen huge increases in subscribers in the region, and the UAE is now one of the fastest growing markets for edtech.

As a further testament to the business prospects in the region, more than 400 local and international edtech companies have confirmed their participation at GESS Dubai that is set to take place from November 14-16, 2021. Canada-based ezrobot, which is looking to expand its operations in the Middle East, is one among the 400 plus edtech companies participating in GESS Dubai. “Many schools that have implemented our strategies have seen enrolment in their robotics programmes increase by as much as 1,000% – we’re excited to help educators learn how they can dramatically increase engagement in robotics, coding and AI education,” says Dennis Kambeitz, CEO, ezrobot.

Homegrown edtech company Alef Education will also be participating at the event to showcase its AI-powered Alef Platform, which has been adopted by the UAE Ministry of Education for use in all public schools in the UAE. This year, the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) is supporting over 50 British companies who will be exhibiting in the UK Pavilion at GESS Dubai. 10 of these are edtech companies that are new to the show.
