The Global Smart Education and Learning Market was valued at USD69.48 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD182.67 billion by 2026. The rising number of virtual schools, shifting preference of the educational institutes, students and corporates towards smart methods of learning and emergence of connected devices is expected to positively influence the Global Smart Education and Learning Market in the coming years. The introduction of BYOD concept, learning management systems, favorable government policies across the globe are further expected to drive the growth in the industry. However, concerns related to the availability of internet services in remote areas and reluctance to transition from traditional methods to online learning are expected to limit the industry's growth.

Global Smart Education and Learning Market can be segmented into component, learning type, learning mode, end-user, deployment model, type of content, and region. Based on component, the market can be segmented into hardware, software, and services. The hardware segment is further segmented into interactive whiteboards, interactive displays, and others, including tablets, smart notebooks, etc. The software segment is further bifurcated into integrated solutions and standalone solutions. The services segment is further bifurcated into professional and managed services. The hardware segment is expected to dominate the Global Smart Education and Learning Market; however, the services segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 20.47% in the forecast period. Based on the learning type, the market can be segmented into synchronous and asynchronous learning. The synchronous learning held a share of 57.06% in the year 2020, however the share is expected to decrease in the forecast period due to rise in the adoption of asynchronous learning methods, which offers the users the flexibility of timings and helps them to repeatedly watch the modules.

Based on the learning mode, the market can be segmented into virtual instructor-led training, adaptive learning, collaborative learning, blended learning, simulation based-training, social learning, and others including radio-based learning, mobile learning, etc. The adaptive learning segment is expected to grow at a higher pace with a CAGR of 17.74% in the forecast period because of the increased adoption of adaptive learning-based modules, which offer personalized training modules according to the understanding level of the user.

Based on the end-users, the market is segmented into academics and enterprises. The academics segment held a share of 79.83% in the year 2020.  The deployment model segment can be bifurcated into on-premises and cloud. The cloud segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to the rise in the adoption of the cloud platforms across the globe.

Based on type of content, the market is sub-segmented into video-based content, text content, and audio-based content. The video-based content segment held a share of 51.32% in the market in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.82% in the forecast period.
