Market Overview

The gyroscopes market was valued at USD 2232.56 million in 2020, and is expected to reach a value of USD 2896.86 million by 2026 and grow at a CAGR of 4.44% over the forecast period (2021-2026). The gyroscope technology has witnessed a huge amount of innovation in the last decade, with the introduction of MEMS-based gyroscopes. The accuracy and efficiency of the gyroscopes have also improved as multi axis gyroscopes are more accurate due to digital integration.

  • The increasing demand for the satisfactory performance of INS has influenced technological innovations in gyroscopes. The aviation industry, which is the key consumer of INS systems, has played a major role in the market growth and is expected to be a key driver for the global market.
  • The rapidly growing adoption of drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the defense and commercial sector has been identified to be a major driver in the market. Besides, technological innovations, as a result of the increasing investments in the market, are ensuing in higher performance and lower costs. This is expanding the market for gyroscope systems in several industries, driving the growth of the market.
  • However, the increasing manufacturing complexity and costs involved in the industry are hampering the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

Gyroscopes can be defined as sensors used for the measurement of orientation in several devices. Ever since their inception, gyroscopes have evolved considerably, aided by incremental innovations in technology. This has helped them to emerge as one of the most integral components in navigation systems. In terms of technology, gyroscopes are divided as MEMS gyroscope, fiber optic gyroscope (FOG), ring laser gyroscope (RLG), hemispherical resonator gyroscope (HRG), dynamically tuned gyroscope (DTG), and other technologies.

Key Market Trends

Aerospace and Defense is Expected to Hold a Significant Share

  • Gyroscopes are basically critical rotation sensing elements which are used in navigation systems, specifically for inertial navigation systems (INS), attention and heading reference systems (AHRS) or inertial measurement units (IMUs) for manned and unmanned aircraft, spacecraft, marine and surface vehicles.
  • The ring laser gyro (RLG) helps in rotation measurement. Because of its affordable high performance inertial sensor with the electronics, power supply and sense element, it is an easy-to-use compact unit for the aerospace and defense industry.
  • A gyrometer as an inertial sensor that measures angular rotations. Its vibratory technologies hold exceptional reliability and compactness, which is mainly used to stabilize aiming lines on remotely controlled gun turrets and images, and also for avionics, integrated into the artificial horizons of military or civilian aircraft.
  • In Canada, the demand for gyroplane aircraft is increasing due to the effective application of gyroscope. According to a report in the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry, the IFR gyroscopes are being adopted in the aerospace industry because of their effective applications.
  • Across various other countries, aerospace and defense sectors are expected to significantly contribute to the market growth.

Asia-Pacific to Witness a Significant Growth Rate

  • Asia-Pacific was the only region to register a capacity growth in the oil and gas industry, in the recent years. About four new refineries were added in the region, which has added about 750,000 barrels per day, to the global crude oil production.
  • For instance, in China, for the oil and gas industry, a certain kind of gyroscope has been designed for the borehole drilling field which has the ability to overcome certain technical difficulties like monitoring the operating temperature up to 100 degree centigrade. Mostly, inertial devices are more adaptable and better applied in the drilling field.
  • Moreover, as Japan is well known as the manufacturing hub of the automobile industry, the new development plan for driverless vehicles is giving rise to the adoption of gyroscopes. 
  • Furthermore, the increased enforcement of regulations from countries, such as China, Japan, and South Korea, has encouraged companies to invest in different gyroscopes. Thus, end-user companies are willing to invest in the measurement of orientation in several devices monitoring system for their safety.
