Global Inertial Navigation System (INS) Market to Reach US$ 18.9 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Emerging Defense Industry

April 12, 2023 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Inertial Navigation System (INS) Market Report by Technology (Mechanical Gyros, Ring Laser Gyros, Fiber Optics Gyros, MEMS, and Others), Grade (Marine Grade, Navigation Grade, Tactical Grade, Space Grade, Commercial Grade), Component (Accelerometers, Gyroscopes, Algorithms and Processors, Wireless Systems), Application (Aircraft, Missiles, Space Launch Vehicles, Marine, Military Armored Vehicles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Unmanned Ground Vehicles, Unmanned Marine Vehicles), and Region 2024-2032," the global inertial navigation system (INS) market size reached US$ 11.5 Billion in 2023. An inertial navigation system (INS) refers to a navigation system that generally utilizes gyroscopes, magnetometers and accelerometers to measure the angular velocity and acceleration of a moving object. It is capable of calculating positions that are either relative to some reference point or to absolute coordinates. Besides this, it does not depend on external signals, such as GPS, to determine the position, making it a useful system in situations where GPS signals are not available or unreliable. As a result, it is extensively used in the manufacturing of commercially produced games, computers, cameras, medical appliances and guided military weapons. 

Global Inertial Navigation System (INS) Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the defense industry. Along with this, the rising investments by private and public agencies to upgrade the overall defense infrastructure are significantly supporting the uptake of INS. In addition to this, the growing incidences of terrorism activities and the increasing geopolitical conflicts are major driving factors. Moreover, the escalating demand for unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) in oil and gas explorations is creating a positive market outlook. Apart from this, continual technological advancements and the widespread integration of machine learning (ML) and advanced sensors with the initial navigation system are acting as major growth-inducing factors. In line with this, the advent of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology has led to the increasing development of smaller and more affordable INS systems, which is providing a boost to the market. The market is further driven by the widespread adoption of INS systems in the production of autonomous systems, such as drones and self-driving cars, to enhance navigation and localization capabilities. Other factors, such as rapid urbanization and digitization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 18.9 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.6% during 2024-2032.
