The COVID 19 crisis continues to have a major impact on the development of the Education PC market. Higher Education institutions were more independent than K-12 schools in terms of accommodating their students during pandemic and reliance on BYOD devices was significant. Governmental funding is more fragmented in higher education, but large schemes like Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund in the US and Recovery and Resilience Fund in Europe for Higher Education will be driving demand for devices.
As the universities were preparing to reopen for in person teaching in H1 2021, in many cases they were pushed to rethink how lectures, seminars and practical lessons were conducted to allow smooth transition to hybrid or remote learning.
This report reviews market performance in H1 2021 but also looks ahead to the remainder of the year continuing to assess the impact of COVID 19 on Higher Education.
