The global accelerometer and gyroscope market is projected to witness a CAGR of 5.38% during the forecast period to reach US$12.168 billion by 2026, increasing from US$8.434 billion in 2019.

Market Drivers

The major driver operating the accelerometer and gyroscope market is the increasing investment and expenditure of the aerospace and defense sectors of the economy. The growth of the consumer electronics market coupled with the emergence of efficient, economic, and compact MEMS technology; growing adoption of automation in industries and homes; and rising demand from emerging economies is furthering the market ahead during the forecast period. The automotive sector also provides growth opportunities for the market in the years to come.

By geography, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region in the market followed by North America. By end-user, the aerospace and defense segment holds a significant share, while electronics and automotive industries show noteworthy growth prospects.

Growth Factors

High-end uses in defense and aerospace

Defense and aerospace are two capital-intensive sectors that attract million-dollar investments all around the world. The government budgets also assign substantial expenditure to these sectors. High-performance accelerometers and gyroscopes are integral parts of the navigation and guidance systems used extensively in the defense and aerospace sectors. In the defense and aerospace sectors, the markets in the U.S. and Europe have matured, while many new programs are being launched in Asia, Brazil, and the Middle East. These established and emerging markets are factoring the use of the accelerometer and gyroscope in several modern systems

The emergence of MEMS technology

MEMS sensors have many applications in measuring either linear acceleration along one or several axes or angular motion about one or several axes as an input to control a system. These MEMS-based accelerometers and gyroscopes in consumer electronics are growing faster each year, with increasing demands from the mobile market, which is dominating the growth of this emerging technology. They are a component of highly used devices such as gaming consoles, smartphones, and tablets.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Accelerometer And Gyroscope Market

The pandemic has raised the importance of digital communication and the usage of electronic devices as people adopted the remote work culture, online education, and more. As such the technology behind these devices saw an uptick in demand, thereby the market for accelerometers and gyroscopes saw a positive impact. The demand from the health sector also surged during this period. But the demand from the aerospace and defense sector contracted. Overall, the market witnessed a mixed response during the pandemic.
