Increasing applications based on motion sensing and technological advancement enabling more effective components at a smaller and lighter size are some of the factors fuelling the growth of the market. Further availability of low cost MEMS gyros have make it cheaper, compact and affordable along with integration of GPS with INS has become more common in aviation has further propelled the market growth. Whereas, substantial increase in computing complexity, integration drift error is a major concern in navigation systems and complex nature of integration in existing systems and need for ancillary components are some of the challenges hindering the growth of the market.

The global inertial measurement unit market has been broadly segmented into different components (gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer and others) and applications (commercial, defense, marine, industrial and others).  

Defense industry takes the major share of the market with applications like missile guidance, control and targeting, precision guided munitions, tank turret stabilization and torpedo guidance. The other primary industries where these systems are highly in demand are Industrial manufacturing, energy and infrastructure, transportation and aviation.

The market has also been geographically segmented into North America (United States, Canada and other), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, France and Rest of Europe), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India and others) and Rest of the World.

In 2015, North America held the largest market share of 41.26% in the overall revenue of the global market, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. Rising demand for commercial aircraft, rapid advancement in the MEMs technology and huge inflow of investments in the region by the federal government has fuelled the growth of the market in the region.

However, North America and Europe held the major share in the global inertial measurement unit market, Asia Pacific is estimated to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. New entrants from the emerging economies like India and China in the MEMs segment along with increasing concentration towards the manufacturing of advanced technology has fuelled the growth of the market.

Some of the vendors mentioned in the report are Robert Bosch GmbH, Trimble Navigation, L3 Communications, Rockwell Collins Inc., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Thales Group.
