North America to Set Benchmark for Revenue Growth in Market

In view of regional segmentation, the world inertial measurement unit market is envisioned to be segregated into Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific except Japan (APEJ), and the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Japan could be another segment of the market but with a nominal absolute revenue opportunity between 2017 and 2022. However, North America is forecasted to be a greater market for inertial measurement unit, considering its US$1.2 bn revenue prognosticated to be earned by the concluding forecast year. This region could continue to be one of the most attractive ones for the market until the end of 2022.

APEJ could be another lucrative region for the world inertial measurement unit market with a 6.7% CAGR prophesied to be registered during the forecast period. Europe could create an opportunity of US$0.2 bn by 2022 over 2017. The MEA could demonstrate a sluggish growth in the next few years.

Some of the leading players in the worldwide inertial measurement unit market could be Honeywell International, Inc., Thales Group, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Safran Electronics & Defense SAS, and Rockwell Collins.
