With increasing efforts and initiatives taken by governments across Asia to strengthen the online education and smart education facilities, there has been a rise in the number of players entering the market in the past few years. Governments are also offering grants and developmental policies which are encouraging new players to enter the market. Transparency Market Research (TMR) states in its new report on this market that in order for companies to make the most of the growing opportunities in smart education and learning market, it will be important to strive for product differentiation.

Use of State Of Art Technology and Tools Making Smart Education Unaffordable For Small-Scale Learning Centers and Institutions
The deployment of hardware, software, and tools is essential to start a smart learning facility and that requires high initial investment. Many of the tools involve state-of-the-art technology which means they are expensive and unaffordable for a large number of end users such as small learning centers and small-scale institutions. The high cost of smart education and learning tools will thus act as a challenge. Another factor which is expected to restrict the growth of this market is the availability of a large number of online courses and options to choose from. This creates a lot of confusion among students who become indecisive about the right selection of the course as well as the platform. On a positive note, however, virtual reality classrooms will fuel the growth opportunities within the market. Cloud computing, as well as real-time analytics in smart education, will also create significant growth opportunities.
