The Inertial Navigation System (INS) component segment captured maximum interceptor missiles market share of over 30% in 2019, followed by the radar homing segment at more than 20% of the total industry share.
 

INS is a navigation device that maneuvers missiles by calculating their orientation, dead reckoning the position, and velocity of moving objects. INS do not require any external reference for maneuvering, making it the most versatile system. Integration of two navigation systems for enhanced accuracy and precision is among the major market trend.
 

Technological advancement to improve navigation system of missiles for improving interception capabilities will drive the market demand. For instance, in January 2019, the U.S. Army initiated a conversation with DoD and Pentagon to establish missile defense sensors in space, which will allow to monitor missile launches across the globe.
