Inertial Measurement Unit Market summary

IMUs are simply one component of a bigger sensor sector that has recently witnessed increased demand. Growing demand for MEMS (microelectromechanical system) devices, which range in size from 20 micrometers to 1mm, is one important trend fueling this increase. Component makers are under pressure to decrease their form factors to tiny levels, between 1 and 100 micrometers, as device sizes continue to shrink. The sensor sector is following suit, with form factors shrinking as well.

Inertial measurement unit (IMU) uses a combination of accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers to detect and report a body's particular force, angular rate, and occasionally direction. IMUs are commonly used to maneuver aircraft (an attitude and heading reference system), such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and spacecraft, such as satellites and landers.

IMUs are commonly used to determine direction in a GPS system, monitor motion in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and video game controllers, and track a user's head motions in AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) systems. This motion and orientation data is also useful for keeping a drone balanced, increasing the heading of your robot vacuum cleaner, and other IoT and linked home devices.
IMUs can be used in industry to align and measure the placement of equipment such as antennas. IMUs are also utilized to aid in the maneuvering of aero planes, whether with or without a person pilot.

Some in-flight entertainment systems in the consumer airspace employ IMUs in their remotes to enhance accessibility in addition to touch. LG Smart TV remotes take a similar concept, allowing users to manage the TV's user interface using an easy point-and-click technique rather than directional buttons.
Recent advancements enable the manufacture of IMU-enabled GPS systems. When GPS signals are absent, such as in tunnels within buildings, or when there is electrical interference, an IMU allows a GPS receiver to function.

The Landmark 005 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Gladiator Technologies measures using high-speed VELOX technology and a SWaP-C architecture. 6 cubic inches in volume and provides high-precision performance for control and stabilization applications in harsh settings, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and autonomous ground vehicles (UGVs)

Bosch Sensortec's BMI260 family of inertial measurement units now includes the BMI270 ultra-low-power smart inertial measurement unit (IMU) for wearable applications (IMUs). Because of Bosch's newest MEMS manufacturing technology, the new IMU, which was presented at CES 2019, offers superior accelerometer offset and sensitivity performance.
