As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Sakshi Bhoyar, “The Global Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2021-2028. Primary flight display is usually formed by AHRS and Electronic Flight Instrument Systems (EFIS), which are a key part of glass cockpits. Air data, attitude, and heading reference system (ADAHRS) is created by combining AHRS with air data to offer additional information such as airspeed, altitude, and outside air temperature.

Attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) are multi-axis sensors that employ inertial navigation to calculate an aircraft's position and velocity, including heading, altitude, and yaw. The system sends data about flight dynamics to the flight deck, flight controls, the weather radar antenna platform, and other aircraft systems.

The sensors take the place of mechanical gyroscopic flying instruments, offering high precision and reliability. Solid-state or MEMS gyro meters, accelerometers, and magnetometers are used on all three axes. AHRS is essentially a self-contained system that combines a variety of sensors into a single box. It uses less energy and has few wires. It has a small footprint and is low in weight. AHRS delivers accurate and reliable heading and attitude information.

An Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) refers to an inertial sensor installation that offers information relevant to critical attitude reference & heading reference for aircraft. This information is relayed to any of the systems of the entire aircraft that processes it, including flight deck displays, weather radar antenna, flight controls, and others. For typical applications such as undersea ROV piloting, platform stabilization, land vehicle navigation, and others, attitude and heading reference systems are widely used in highly dynamic ground and marine habitats. In comparison to traditional gyroscopic technologies, high-scale accuracy and reliability offered by attitude and heading reference systems sparked a surge in demand. Attitude and heading reference systems are widely used, due to their high durability and unequaled accuracy and precision.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted economic disparities in the global demand in the crises of global interdependence and governance challenges. Epidemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns and vulnerabilities.  According to the current pandemic situation, strict measures are required for monitoring the situation, which in turn, affect businesses causing unanticipated short and long-term effects. Consequently, epidemics and pandemics are problems for individual market and an enhancement of existing dynamics and limitations.

In the long-term, COVID-19 can serve as another opportunity for manufacturers to reconsider their commitment to the supply chain in regions prone to outbreaks and to reconfigure themselves regionally.
In current scenario, COVID-19 is hampering the production process of several manufacturing industries and businesses. Moreover, trade barriers are further reducing the demand-supply of various products and services. However, reduction in outdoor activities and social distancing has created lucrative opportunities for the market.
