[Report Description]

The tactical inertial systems market is estimated to register a CAGR of 7.62% during 2019-2026. The emergence of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology resulted in the miniaturization of mechanical and electro-mechanical elements in the field of sensors and semiconductors, with micro-fabrication and micro-machining techniques. Hence, MEMS have become a fundamental part of the future navigation systems and thus, are boosting the growth of the tactical inertial systems market.

Key Highlights

  • The growth in the tactical inertial systems market is majorly driven by the increasing pressure on the contract manufacturers to reduce the size of the inertial systems to make them suitable for a broad range of tactical applications.

  • MEMS greatly support the rapid increase in portable devices, as they offer enhanced capabilities within small unit sizes. The tactical inertial MEMS market forecast predicts a dramatic rise in the volume of inertial MEMS devices over the next five years.

  • However, over the years, GPS has become a prime target for cybersecurity attacks, thus, making the high-end inertial system an attractive choice for its deployment by augmenting the GPS in remote areas and using it for mission-critical applications.

Key Market Trends

Accelerometer segment to hold the highest market share

  • Traditional accelerometers were built on the principle of mechanical vibration. The principal components of an accelerometer are a mass supported by springs. With the use of silicon-based products and miniaturization techniques, the accelerometer structure has shrunk rapidly.

  • MEMS accelerometers sold in the current market scenario contain microscopic crystal structures with a mass attached to the top that gets stressed by accelerative forces, which causes a voltage to be generated.

  • Over the years, low-g accelerators have gained traction for their applications. With the 3D MEMS technology, the companies are offering accelerators assembled in a dual-in-line or dual-in-flat-line plastic package with pins for surface mount and re-flow soldering. They are environmentally protected with silicone gel resulting in excellent performance and reliability in a humid environment and at temperature cycling.

Asia Pacific Accounts For the Largest Market Share

  • Asia-Pacific is the largest market for tactical inertial systems in the current market scenario. Large volume production in countries such as China, Japan, and India keeps a constant demand for tactical inertial systems in the region.

  • In addition, this growth is due to increased investment in the defense sector from growing economies such as India and China. The defense sector in China and India is increasing defense spending and procurement of advanced remotely operated vehicles for military applications.

  • In September 2021, India sought investment from Australia s defense industry as the two countries discussed ways to strengthen defense relations and cooperate in maritime security in China s growing military and influential region of the Indo-Pacific region.

  • Following the tremendous growth in the region, the major players in the market are expanding their operations in the Asia Pacific. For instance, in May 2020, Inertial Labs set up new partnerships with Malaysian and Indian distributors to better serve the local market of its inertial sensing technology and products.

  • With a new partnership with Malaysia s Dynamic Positioning Technology SDNBHD, the Southeast Asian marine and offshore industry will become a state-of-the-art Automatic Positioning, Navigation, and Directional Technology for platforms such as Unmanned Surface Ships (USVs) and Underwater Vehicles.

  • Inertial Labs has partnered with Datasol Innovative Labs (DILabs) to provide India with local benefits from local suppliers and partners, all from Inertial Labs superior products, business development strategies, technical support, and marketing activities.

Competitive Landscape

The market s growth is primarily fuelled by increasing applications, technological advancements, and rising aerospace and defense budgets. Furthermore, the growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for accuracy and calibration in guidance, control and targeting, precision-guided armaments, and other weaponry.

  • November 2020 - Northrop Grumman produced its 75,000th G-2000 gyroscope, the smallest tactical-grade gyroscope for commercial and military customers. Well regarded for its performance and accuracy, the G-2000 senses orientation for numerous stabilization and targeting applications.

  • May 2020 - Northrop Grumman’s SeaFIND Inertial Navigation System has been type-approved by the US Coast Guard (USCG), formally certifying its use as a shipboard gyrocompass system for navigation for nations that need the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) compliance.
