High-end inertial systems comprise of high-performance variants of accelerometers, gyroscopes and multi-axes integrated systems like inertial measurement units (IMU). IMUs consist of a combination of accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers and processing units. High-end inertial systems can be differentiated based on grade, using performance metrics and end-user applications. Low-grade applications include commercial grade systems like video games, smartphones and portable devices, while the high-grade applications include military, defense and navigation units that need high accuracy and performance.
MEMS technology has played a major role in expanding the application base for high-end inertial systems by scaling down the size and power consumption of these devices, without compromising on their performance metrics. The overall market outlook has been fairly positive; technological innovations in fabrication and micro-machining are expected to drive the growth in this sector.
The inertial systems, as tilt sensors, are used for platform stabilization such as professional cameras, antennas, turrets and weapon stations. To meet the increasing demand for IMUs, and AHRS systems for military applications, the market players are producing custom MEMS-based accelerometers with improved bias stability. The MEMS technology for high-end military and aerospace applications provides high-performance at low-cost, leading to miniaturization of the devices. Tactical grade inertial applications, high-stability military, aerospace and industrial tilt applications will further increase the demand for inertial system, and the market is expected to have a strong potential growth during the forecast period.
The high-end inertial systems market is segmented into high-end gyroscopes, accelerometers, and IMU's. They are further segmented into end-user applications, based on their respective performance grades. High-end IMU's have been segmented, based on bias stability, into industrial, defense, aerospace and land applications, with defense applications accounting for the largest market share in this segment. High-end accelerometers and gyroscopes are segmented, based on their bias stability & working range, into navigation, tactical, industrial and automotive applications.
North America holds the largest market share in this industry, followed by Europe. Mature markets in these regions have facilitated the deployment of these systems. Improving economic conditions and growing industrial trends are driving the market in Asia-Pacific, which is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period.
