DUBLIN, September 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Automotive Inertial Measurement Unit Sensors Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global automotive inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 32.38% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global automotive inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers a combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches, wherein our in-house databases have been used to arrive at the automotive IMU sensors market. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Reduction in packaging size will be a key trend for market growth. The MEMS packaging industry has gained immense importance in recent years and is constantly evolving. The need to reduce packaging size and integrate 9-axis sensors in a single package has increased, especially with the advent of multi-axis IMUs. Furthermore, it is crucial for vendors to achieve standardization in packaging due to the massive increases in the unit shipments of MEMS sensors over the last few years.
According to the report, advances in inertial measurement unit manufacturing technologies will be a key driver for market growth. Vendors such as InvenSense and STMicroelectronics have developed dies that can integrate both accelerometers and gyroscopes into closer packing sizes. Packaged combo sizes of sensors are now available at 10x10 mm² size, which is further expected to decrease with reducing die sizes. Now, IMUs are enhanced with sensor-fusion software in the application features such as automatic screen rotation, gesture recognition, step-counting, personal navigation, and free fall detection.
Further, the report states that power supply issues are expected to be a technical hurdle for inertial measurement unit manufacturers which will be a challenge for the market. Combo sensors like IMUs may be reduced in size, yet there is a noticeable drop in efficiency due to the need for scaling down the energy density in the batteries used, which adversely affects the battery life. This is a challenge for manufacturers as increasing efficiency while reducing battery size is expected to be quite expensive. This problem can however be dealt by introducing electronics that consume less power.
