UAV-based attitude & heading reference system (AHRS) market to accrue substantial momentum over 2019-2025, North America to emerge as a significant remuneration ground
The growing focus on precision guidance, navigation and control in the aviation industry has led to the growth of the global AHRS market in recent years. A sensor-based device used to determine the orientation of a vehicle or the object it is integrated to, AHRS usage is critical mainly for aircraft that fly during darkness or under conditions of reduced visibility. The product is light weight, small sized and is equipped with self-correcting capability which has led to its prolonged application in business jets, turboprops, and piston-powered aircraft as well as in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), human body motion tracking and more.
U.S. Attitude and Heading Reference System Market, By Type, 2018 & 2025, (USD Thousand)
In any navigation system, the product can continuously make small corrections by using periods of stable flight and reference attitude, thus improving features like autopilot and diminishing prolonged sessions of turbulence. Its commendable characteristics have overtly led to a robust upsurge in the product adoption in recent years, propelling AHRS industry trends.
The development of advanced technologies like micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) is certain to boost the product penetration as well. AHRS is designed to replace traditional mechanical gyroscopic instruments and nowadays come with MEMS gyroscopes, magnetometers and accelerometers. Some AHRS also use GPS receivers to improve long-term gyroscopes stability thus offering OEMs high performance and lightweight portfolios. Additionally, the rising demand for such technologies in the UAV sector for commercial and military activities like surveillance, reconnaissance and target attacks has also stimulated the growth of the attitude and heading reference system industry.

Rising popularity of UAVs to push AHRS market trends
Of late, military organizations are employing UAVs for mobile missions, especially in spying, monitoring and inspection scenarios. These autonomous vehicles demand precise stability and navigation for determining attitude angles in diverse environments. Although these angles can be measured using a conventional INS (inertial navigation system) system, modern AHRS MEMS technologies are offering low-cost, lightweight solutions to UAV developers, which are more appropriate in reducing embedded systems space and weight.
With real-time monitoring and provision for security and surveillance facilities, the AHRS market will certainly receive momentum from the escalating deployment of UAVs in the years ahead.
Another platform-based segment that is likely to gain traction in the AHRS industry is GPS. Indeed, GPS-based AHRS market is likely to accrue quite some profit in the years to come, given the product’s superior performance in navigation and positioning operations. Low cost, compact GPS AHRS systems are currently being used to track human body movements in indoor environments by estimation of the 3D orientation.
In addition to human tracking capability, GPS-centric systems provide efficient position estimates and compute longitudinal acceleration to help remove drift errors present in conventional AHRS. The benefits offered by the systems will enhance their penetration in the years ahead, subsequently impelling GPS-based AHRS market share over 2019-2025.
North America is anticipated to emerge as a pivotal revenue pocket for the global AHRS market, primarily on account of the rising demand for military UAVs. Increasing demand for business aircraft and surging air passenger traffic will further enhance the regional industry growth over 2019-2025.
According to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) forecast report, the U.S. carrier sectors profitability is anticipated to remain steady or increase due to improving economy in the coming years. Furthermore, the industry will command profitability by means of increasing demand for air travel and airfares due to rising disposable income. The presence of pivotal aircraft OEMs such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Northrop Grumman that have been focusing on the launch of advanced systems will also further propel the North America attitude and heading reference system market share.
The attitude and heading reference system, a sensor-based device that provides attitude information for aircraft, is cautiously designed to replace traditional mechanical gyroscope attitude systems and can effectively offer applications with enhanced correction capabilities. Technological advancements for improving accuracy and efficiency coupled with enhanced performance standards are likely to impel the industry trends in the years ahead. As per Global Market Insights, Inc., AHRS market size will surpass $455 million by 2025.
