All those accelerometers, gyroscopes and compasses and in mobile and gaming applications add up quickly. In fact, in the new report “Motion Sensors for Consumer & Mobile Applications,” Yole Developpement researchers expect 2009’s sales of $847M to reach $2.56B in 2015 – a 20.3% annual growth rate. Yole projects that many applications will employ 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope combined into a single package within 2015. Compasses (magnetometers) now popular in handsets will add gaming and digital still cameras (DSC) for advanced geo-tagging to the list of applications driving their usage. Over 50 companies targeting these applications will make the product offerings quite interesting and competitive.
