Market Trends of NA Inertial Systems Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Inertial Systems Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Demand in Accuracy to Drive the Market

  • A high level of accuracy and reliability are the prime features of a navigational system. Inertial navigational systems have a distinct advantage over other forms of navigation systems in terms of their lack of dependence on external aids to determine the rotation and acceleration of a moving object. These systems use a combination of gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers to determine the vector variables of a vehicle or a moving object.
  • Navigational systems are inherently suited for use in integrated navigation, control, and guidance of vehicles in challenging environments. Unlike GPS and other kinds of navigation systems, inertial systems can retain their performance even under difficult conditions. Inertial measurement units (IMU) are well suited to calculate several metrics for navigational systems. These systems remain unaffected by radiation and jamming problems. Strapdown inertial systems find more usage in inertial navigation systems than gimbaled systems, as they are strapped to the moving object and offer better reliability and performance. They also provide cost-effectiveness as they are incorporated with MEMS techniques.
  • As advanced technologies such as AI and machine learning become more widely adopted, advanced robotics cars that can be controlled remotely via sensor technology are becoming more common. Unmanned underwater vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and unmanned ground vehicles are being updated with this new technology. In today's battle scenario, accurate position parameters, such as altitude and orientation of tactical-grade equipment, are important.
  • Inertial navigation systems are now available for commercial use in private aircraft, UAVs, and military and defense units. They form an integral part of the navigational control systems. They can also interact with other navigational systems due to incremental advancements in the processing ability of the systems. Several forms of inertial systems, like magnetometers, are widely used to determine the orientation and presence of a magnetic field in conjunction with other inertial systems.
  • Multi-axis systems like IMUs and AHRS are used to determine moving objects' altitude, position, acceleration, and velocity. Inertial systems are ideal for providing high accuracy in navigational systems by combining accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers.

Availability of Advanced IMUs to Favor Market Growth

  • IMUs in military operations, particularly in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have spurred companies to develop advanced solutions for this technology. As a result, next-generation IMUs are widely available on the market. For example, EMCORE's Systron Donner Inertial makes solid-state micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) IMUs for drones that can function in extreme climates.
  • SBG Systems, established in France, creates and sells MEMS-driven inertial sensors for unmanned vehicles. The Ellipse 2 Micro Series is the company's smallest and lightest IMU, designed to give precise location data for unmanned systems. Such breakthroughs in inertial sensor technologies are broadening the scope and speeding up the growth of the IMU market.
  • Previously, IMU sensors in the car sector were limited to navigation systems. On the other hand, the current use of automotive IMU sensors in various other automotive applications has necessitated the need for more robust sensors with high performance and small size. As a result, suppliers are attempting to meet the industry's ever-changing demands.
  • The demand for systems like ADAS and airbags is a major driver of the automotive IMU sensors market's growth. ADAS systems are placed in cars to decrease human errors that might cause driving accidents. ADAS is especially useful for long rides when weariness is the leading cause of accidents.
  • Developed countries, such as the United States and Canada, are expected to be the biggest ADAS markets. Airbags are included in automobiles to protect the occupants in the event of an accident. These airbags are controlled by an airbag control unit, which receives data from various sensors, including automotive IMU sensors.
