Market Overview:

The global portable altimeter market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for wearable portable altimeters and rising popularity of adventure sports. Additionally, the growing awareness about the benefits of using portable altimeters is also contributing to the growth of this market. Based on type, wearable portable altimeters are expected to account for a larger share of the global market than not wearable ones during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their growing popularity among consumers owing to their ease-of-use and portability.

Global Portable Altimeter Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A portable altimeter is an instrument used to measure the altitude of an object above a fixed level. It is important for pilots, hikers, and climbers to know their elevation as it can help with navigation and safety.


The wearable technology market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The major factor that propels the growth of this industry is increasing adoption of smart devices among consumers. Technological advancement in sensor technology and manufacturing has led to a surge in demand for fitness and healthcare-related products, which include altimeters as one of its essential features.

not Wearable:

The market is still in its nascent stage and has a long way to go before it becomes mature. The industry is moving towards the development of products that are more user-friendly, which also happens to be highly efficient. Wearable technology has been around for quite some time; however, it was limited to the fitness sector until recently when technological advancement made wearable devices more approachable and less restricting.

Application Insights:

Paraglider was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Paragliding is a winter sport which requires an accurate measurement of height for planning various activities, such as launching and landing. The free flight segment is also estimated to witness significant growth during the same period owing to increasing number of adventure enthusiasts who are into paragliding or wingsuit flying. These adventurers require highly portable altitude devices for measuring their heights while airborne, thus contributing towards segment growth during the study period.

Hot air ballooning has become increasingly popular as a leisure activity over recent years across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific regions due to rising disposable income levels among consumers coupled with improved living standards which promote spending on recreational activities such as hot air ballooning.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The U.S., as a leading country, has witnessed significant growth in the paraglider and free flight segment owing to increasing demand for adventure sports activities such as paragliding and free flying. Moreover, with an increase in awareness regarding outdoor recreation activities among people, North America is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions during the forecast period owing to growing popularity of portable altimeters among pilots across countries such as China and India for conducting aerial adventures including hot air ballooning and mountaineering flights respectively.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for altitude measurement in aviation and defense sectors
  • Growing popularity of outdoor activities and adventure sports
  • Proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones
  • Development of advanced altimeter technologies
  • Expansion of the global tourism industry
