Global Inertial Measurement Unit Markets, 2014-2019 & 2020-2025 with COVID-19 Impact Insights


Dublin, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Inertial Measurement Unit Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global inertial measurement unit market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2014-2019

The inertial measurement unit (IMU) refers to a self-contained system used for measuring the linear and angular motion of an object. Some of the commonly used devices in an IMU include, precision gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers. The gyroscope can measure the rotational speed and rate of an object, a magnetometer is used to measure the magnetic strength of the signal and an accelerometer is used for measuring movement and orientation of the objects. They are widely used in helicopters, civil and military aircraft, armored vehicles, drones, missiles, robots and various consumer electronic products.

The rapid modernization of military equipment and defense systems represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Fiber optic IMUs are widely used with autonomous navigation systems in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that can operate in extreme weather conditions. They are utilized for firefighting, bomb detection and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) activities.

Furthermore, the widespread product adoption for virtual and augmented reality (V/AR) systems and generating artificial environments and measuring alterations in speed, orientation and acceleration is providing a thrust to the market growth. They are also used as an orientation sensor in next-generation smartphones, tablets and gaming devices.

Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of microelectromechanical (MEMS)-based IMUs that can be integrated with the Internet of Things (IoT), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These innovative nano-IMUs are highly compact and are extensively used in lightweight and miniaturized devices.

Other factors, including significant growth in the robotics industry, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.

Looking forward, the global inertial measurement unit market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
