LIDAR Market Application Expanse Such As Autonomous Vehicles and Drones Coupled With Growing Adoption in Many Facets of Life Expected To Drive a Momentous CAGR

“LIDAR Market”
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) – Forecast 2022

Market Scenario:

LIDAR stands for light detection and ranging also called as remote sensing which uses laser pulses to accurately gauge the spatial profile of the object under study. Thus LIDAR substitutes electromagnetic radiation with Laser for measurement owing to its greater accuracy, reflectance, and coherence. The term LIDAR, is an acronym of light detection and ranging. The global LIDAR market is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 21 % during forecast period of 2016 to 2022.


Market Dynamics:


Growing need for accurate surveying and growing application expanse such as geography, atmospheric research, meteorology, archaeology, astronomy, geology, seismology, and forestry is the prime driver of the market. The ability to develop high resolution 3-D maps and mapping hidden morphological structures not possible by conventional electromagnetic radiation is the critical need driving the market. The advantages of LIDAR such as ability to scan a wide range of materials, including both metals and non-metals objects, rocks, rain, chemical compounds, clouds, high accuracy, 3D scanning of images and others has led to an expanse of the market. The ability to measure physical features with very high resolutions is reflected by the fact that aerial LIDAR can map terrain at a resolution of 30-centimetre. The high potential of LIDAR makes it a critical technology needed for precision maneuverability of robots and space landing vehicles. Thus many nations have termed it a strategic technology as exemplified by the U.S. Geological Survey Experimental Advanced Airborne Research LIDAR. LIDAR has also found application in control and navigation for autonomous cars.


Other factors contributing to the growth of the market are advances in sensor technology, growing demand for automation, growing military expenditures and others.
