IMU Market Research
An inertial measurement unit, or IMU, is an electronic device that measures and reports on a craft’s velocity, orientation, and gravitational forces, using a combination of accelerometers and gyroscopes. IMUs are typically used to maneuver aircraft, including UAVs, among many others, and spacecraft, including shuttles, satellites and landers. The IMU is the main component of inertial navigation systems used in aircraft, spacecraft, watercraft, and guided missiles among others.
As per research, the market for IMUs was estimated to be $1.55B in 2009, dominated by defense and aerospace applications. Experts expect this market to grow at a 9% annual growth rate, to reach $2.60B by 2015.
