Accelerometer is a type of sensor that measures physical acceleration of the device in relation to the free fall in one direction. Usually, an accelerometer equipped in modern devices is tri-axial, which has three dedicated units aligned with each direction to measure acceleration along them. Gyroscopes sense angular movement along one rotational direction. Accelerometer and gyroscope only provide information about the movement of a device, either in linear or rotational direction; however, they do provide any information about the orientation of the device. In complex systems, such as, satellites, space vehicles, and missiles, inertial navigation system is used by the combination of accelerometers and gyroscopes.
Factors that assist the market growth include increase in demand for consumer electronics, rise in number of vehicles globally, and high military spending. However, low accuracy of these sensors restrains the market growth. Increase in automation for vehicles and low power consumption & small size are anticipated to provide numerous opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.
In 2015, accelerometer contributed a major share in the market, and is expected to maintain its dominant position throughout the analysis period, due to its extensive usage across defense applications such as missile launch and control; in air bags of cars to activate them in case of sudden impact; and in several consumer electronic equipment. However, gyroscope is expected to grow…
