  • To eliminate measurement errors, these joints must be frictionless. The inaccuracy due to friction grows with repeated use and wear and tear of these systems.


The COVID 19 epidemic harmed the Inertial Navigation System Market, as it did all other industrial segments. As the travel sector suffered as a result of the epidemic and subsequent shutdown, the market shrunk in size and application. The industrial industry, including the Inertial Navigation System Market, experienced a downturn in production and sales. As a result, the growth rate of the Inertial Navigation System Market slowed during the epidemic.

However, when the production of planes and missiles for various purposes acquires traction in the post-pandemic age, the Market will also witness a recovery. The military and naval fields will see a greater use of inertial navigation system aircraft.

The implementation of a more advanced ship inertial navigation system will also result in strong overall market growth trends. As a result, the Market will expand throughout the predicted period.

The gyroscopes sector is expected to account for the highest share of the total market in 2021. The introduction of efficient, cost-effective, and compact gyroscopes is expected to boost demand for gyroscopes in the inertial navigation system market. Gyroscopes' popularity can be linked to its ability to address high-level motion sensing and navigational help. Gyroscopes can also detect angular velocity in three dimensions. Fiber Optics Gyros (FOGs), Ring Laser Gyros (RLGs), mechanical gyros, Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS), vibrating gyros, and Hemispherical Resonator Gyros are some of the most prevalent gyroscope varieties used in inertial navigation systems (HTGs).

The space launch vehicles segment is expected to account for the highest proportion of the inertial navigation system market in 2021 based on application. The increased deployment of space launch vehicles, such as tiny satellites, around the world is expected to boost the demand for highly reliable and accurate inertial navigation systems, which will assure the vehicle's safety. A launch vehicle is a rocket that transports spacecraft, satellites, and payload from the earth's surface into outer space. Space launch vehicles range in size from a modest lift launch vehicle to a super-heavy lift vehicle, depending on their capabilities.

Furthermore, the increased frequency of satellite launches for diverse uses such as research and development, scientific study, and communication is expected to stimulate demand for inertial navigation systems in these space launch vehicles.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
