DALLAS, 19 June 2014. The global market for aircraft altimeter systems and pitot tubes will rise 12.2 percent from an estimated $2.3 billion this year to $2.62 billion in 2019, predict analysts at market researcher Markets and Markets in Dallas. These sensors measure aircraft altitude and speed.

The market research firm details these avionics sensor prediction in the report Altimeter System and Pitot Tube Market for Aerospace and Defense Industry, by Product, by Platform, by Geography, which covers North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle-East, Latin America, and the rest of the world.

Altimeters typically measure an aircraft's altitude by measuring air pressure relative to the plane's operating airport. Pitot tubes measure an aircraft's speed by measuring the amount of air that enters a small intake tube mounted to the plane's fuselage, wing, or tail.

The altimeter market consists of radio, laser, pressure, and GPS altimeters. Pitot tubes, meanwhile, are classified into L-shaped, S-shaped, and straight type, based on shapes.
