G Meter, popularly known as accelerometer is an electromechanical device used for measuring acceleration forces which are either static or dynamic. Static forces includes gravity and dynamic forces include movements and vibrations. The acceleration can be determined with the capacitive plate movement among each other. Additionally, G meters are also used for measuring shocks. It helps in identifying how quickly an object can speed up and slow down in a given time frame. G meters have a significant use in aerospace and defense industry for inertial navigation and guidance systems. There are multiple ways for functioning of accelerometers including piezoelectric effect and capacitance sensing among others. Furthermore, G meters are available in analog and digital formats depending on the interface provided by the device. Within aerospace industry the G meter is used to register the ‘g’ force on the airframe during turbulent or aerobatic maneuvers. The unit of measurement for G meters are meters per second squared (m/s2) or in G-forces (g). G meters can measure accelerations in one, two or three axes.

The significant use of G meters in civil and aerospace applications are suggested to be one of the primary reasons for the growth of the G meters over the forecast period. High frequency response and durable construction of these devices are also one of the significant factors which are having a positive impact on the global G Meters market for the same. However, the significant cost for G meters is one of the factors which can hinder the growth of its global G meters market. Additionally, integration of G meters with MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) is suggested to boost the global G meters market over the forecast period. The reducing size of the G meters are making it an optimal option for a wide range of applications including drones, micro robots and various military applications.
