LIDAR Market 2018 Global Industry Analysis, Emerging factors, Trend, Segmentation, Development History, Company Profiles, Opportunities and Growth by Forecast to 2022

“\”LIDAR Market\””
According to Market Research Future Analysis, LIDAR Market has been valued at USD 1.44 billion by 2022 growing with 21% of CAGR during forecast period 2018 to 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 Highlights:

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 Market systems has made detection and mapping of objects easier than other conventional methods. LIDAR stands for light detection and ranging it is basically remote sensing. LIDAR does not require electromagnetic radiation, but it requires laser pulses that strike the object back to the sensor.

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. Also, the growth in this market can be attributed to the encouragement from the governments, application of LIDAR in engineering projects & large magnitude set and rise in demand for robust security and sensor accuracy.

Regional Analysis

North-America led by the U.S. Accounts for the largest share of the market owing to the faster uptake of new technology, development of military drones, presence of large players and others. The development of the experimental autonomous driving cars and LIDAR speed guns for the measurement of speed of vehicles is creating a greater demand for the market. The European region is led by Germany, France and the U.K. However the market is expected to shift in favor of the Asia Pacific region led by China and India. The Middle East and Africa market is expected to possess a smaller market with a fast growing CAGR owing to the growing mining industry of the region. The Middle East and Africa market is expected to be skewed in favor of Gulf economies of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, and Qatar.
