The smart classroom market in India will witness greater adoption of cloud-based solutions in the forecast period. Educational authorities are increasingly investing in them because of the attractive solutions offered by vendors. Fast implementation and reduced capital expenses are the key benefits of implementing SaaS based solutions. Additionally, many other software solutions such as school administrative software, LMS, and ERP are available in cloud. Educational institutions, especially universities, are shifting toward SaaS-based solutions to provide an online learning system.”
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be digitization of education. Technology-aided education system is finding its way into India. Educational institutions in India are increasingly adopting hardware and software solutions to support various advanced teaching methodologies. Private schools are primarily interested in installing hardware like tablets and laptops in classrooms. Increased Internet penetration and decreasing costs of mobile devices facilitate digitization of education. The wider availability of mobile devices has helped institutions to deploy advanced forms of learning pedagogy.
Further, the report states that infrastructure disparity will be a major challenge for the market. The lack of adequate infrastructure in educational institutions hinders the adoption of evolving technologies and smart ways of learning. Many institutions lack the funds required to install software and purchase tablets and other devices. In addition, due to the inadequate availability of advanced hardware, software, and facilities in developing regions, institutions in these regions are unable to provide appropriate training to foster the development of qualified teachers. This also prevents end-users with less advanced computer systems from accessing multimedia and high graphics videos and images.
