Focus on IMU in 114 smartphones released since 2019 from the three main manufacturers: STMicroelectronics, InvenSense, and Bosch.

Mobile Inertial Sensors Comparison 2021 - Package opening - System Plus Consulting

The MEMS consumer inertial measurement unit (IMU) market is expected to reach $838M in 2026 with a 5% CAGR 2019-2026 according to Yole Développement. This growth will be driven by an increasing attachment rate of MEMS IMUs in smartphones & wearables. Moreover, the increasing replacement of stand-alone MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes with IMUs will contribute to this growth.
The MEMS inertial sensor market, focused on IMUs in smartphones, is mainly represented by three large manufacturers: STMicroelectronics, InvenSense, and Bosch.

This report provides an overview of MEMS integrated into 114 smartphones released since 2019. Thanks to our sampling, you can see which references are used in which smartphones and understand which manufacturer is integrated in which OEM’s smartphone.
System Plus Consulting has conducted a comparative review of the most common IMU references found in our sampling. We examine the dimensions and internal structures of their packages, MEMS arrays, and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), as well as their die sizes and cross-sections of packages, to provide a comprehensive review of MEMS inertial sensors in smartphones with a focus on the IMU. A comparison is also made at the IMU manufacturing process level between manufacturer and between the different technologies used by the same manufacturer and integrated in the smartphones of our sampling.
Additionally, this report features a package opening and a MEMS die opening for the components which integrate only a gyroscope or an accelerometer. Lastly, a complete technology and cost analysis is furnished of the most common references found in our sampling, including the MEMS, the ASIC, and the packaging.
