LIDAR Market: 2018 Competitive Landscape, Analytical Overview, Growth Factors Regional Trends, Industrial Insights, Emerging Technologies and Analysis

LIDAR Market
The global LIDAR Market is expected to reach USD 1.44 billion by the end of 2022 with 21 % CAGR during forecast period 2018-2022. Global LIDAR Market, By Type (Terrestrial, Airborne), By Component (Laser, Navigation, Camera, GPS Receiver), By Application (Seismology, Corridor mapping, Exploration), By End-users (Oil & Gas, Transportation, Mining, Tourism) by Forecast 2022

Market Scenario:

LIDAR stands for light detection and ranging which is also known as remote sensing. LIDAR does not require electromagnetic radiation but it requires laser pulses that strike the object back to the sensor. It measures the distance from the sensor to the object by determining the time between the releases to receiving of the reflected pulse.

Nowadays LIDAR is used everywhere across all the important applications. For instance, terrestrial uses LIDAR which is infrared laser with approximately 900–1064 nanometers and water penetration green light with approximately 532 nanometers for the water measurement. The usage of LIDAR systems has made detection and mapping of objects easier than other conventional methods.

LIDAR systems are used over conventional surveying methods due to their ability to provide highly accurate data and 3D scanning of images in a shorter time. The key factors contributing to the growth of the LIDAR market are data processing technologies over other technologies, automated systems in LIDAR, adoption of aerial LIDAR and emergence of new applications.

Other factors contributing to the growth of the market are rising demand of 3D imaging across various applications. However, less awareness about the benefits of LIDAR systems, use of expensive components in LIDAR systems i.e laser scanners, navigation system, high-resolution 3D cameras which collectively increases the cost of LIDAR systems are hampering the growth of the overall market.  Also, over the forecast period LIDAR market would pose a higher impact on the increasing number of automated cars.

Geographically, North-America accounted for the largest market share for the Global Lidar Market.
