In a cosmological perspective, gravitational induction is explored as a source to mechanical inertia in line with Mach's principle. Within the standard model of cosmos, considering the expansion of the universe and the necessity of retarded interactions, it is found that the assumed dynamics may account for a significant part of an object's inertia.
