LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov. 25, 2022 / — The global education technology (EdTech) market size reached US$183.4 billion in 2021, according to a new report by GlobalData Plc. Disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and game-based learning platforms, among others, are likely to pave the way for EdTech market growth over the next few years. AI enables learners and teachers to create content, customize learning processes, assess achievement, ensure real-time communication, and automate grading.

Similarly, VR and AR allow students to build engaging learning environments by introducing virtual elements and situations. This allows both teachers and students to carry out tasks virtually instead of trying to visualize theoretical concepts, creating a demand for EdTech solutions. In recent years, language learning services have been dominated by traditional teaching institutions. However, the growing popularity of app-based language learning platforms such as Duolingo, Bussu and Preply are believed to be detrimental to the revenues of the incumbents, thereby fueling the growth of the EdTech market over the forecast period.
