New Report Released: - Global Automotive Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Sensors Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors market: Continental Automotive, Honeywell Sensing and Control, LORD Sensing Systems, Murata Manufacturing, Robert Bosch/Bosch, Motorcycles/Bosch Sensortec, Texas Instruments, ZF TRW, Adafruit, Advanced Navigation, Advanced Sensors Calibration, Arduino, Automated Technology (Phil) (ATEC) and Sencio, BITGEAR Automotive Solutions, Colibrys, SAFRAN, DFRobot, Diversified Technical Systems, InvenSense, KVH, MEMSIC, nexonar, NXP Semiconductors, O-Navi, Race Technology, SBG Systems, Sensonor, STMicroelectronics, UAV Navigation, u-blox, VBOX Automotive, Vectornav Technologies, Xsens, and ZMP.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Reduction in packaging size will be a key trend for market growth. The MEMS packaging industry has gained immense importance in recent years and is constantly evolving. The need to reduce packaging size and integrate 9-axis sensors in a single package has increased, especially with the advent of multi-axis IMUs. Furthermore, it is crucial for vendors to achieve standardization in packaging due to the massive increases in the unit shipments of MEMS sensors over the last few years.”

According to the report, advances in inertial measurement unit manufacturing technologies will be a key driver for market growth. Vendors such as InvenSense and STMicroelectronics have developed dies that can integrate both accelerometers and gyroscopes into closer packing sizes. Packaged combo sizes of sensors are now available at 10x10 mm² size, which is further expected to decrease with reducing die sizes. Now, IMUs are enhanced with sensor-fusion software in the application features such as automatic screen rotation, gesture recognition, step-counting, personal navigation, and free fall detection.

Further, the report states that power supply issues are expected to be a technical hurdle for inertial measurement unit manufacturers which will be a challenge for the market. Combo sensors like IMUs may be reduced in size, yet there is a noticeable drop in efficiency due to the need for scaling down the energy density in the batteries used, which adversely affects the battery life. This is a challenge for manufacturers as increasing efficiency while reducing battery size is expected to be quite expensive. This problem can however be dealt by introducing electronics that consume less power.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
