The global LiDAR market size was valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a CAGR of 13.2% over the forecast period. LiDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging, and is a remote sensing technology utilizing light in a pulsed laser form to measure variable distances, or ranges, to the Earth. It finds use primarily in airborne, terrestrial, and mobile applications. The major factors driving market growth for LiDAR include increasing acceptance in environmental mapping, automobile safety application, construction and architectural sectors for monitoring, and 3D-modeling applications. Additionally, the exponential growth in the popularity and adoption of self-driving cars and trucks is expected to propel market growth, as LiDAR is one of the key sensing technologies that is required to enable hybrid to full autonomous driving.
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have witnessed a surging incorporation in automotive safety and forward-collision avoidance systems, which is expected to positively develop the LiDAR industry. In the U.K., regulatory authorities have mandated installation of certain automotive safety technologies, while the Euro NCAP Advanced aims to provide buyers with clear guidance regarding the safety benefits offered by technologies such as blind spot monitoring, lane support, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), speed alert, attention assist, vision enhancement, and pre-crash sensing. Rising developments in 3D scanning solutions is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period. The ability to store large LiDAR point files has been a stumbling block for new users; however, the technological advancements in spatial resolution of LIDAR-based digital terrain models offer excellent accuracy in applications such as change detection on hillsides, water runoff for agriculture or mining sites, and inland waterways.
The relative lack of customer knowledge and awareness regarding LiDAR and its advantages presents numerous opportunities to the industry to develop novel applications for piquing consumer interest. The major types of product include terrestrial, airborne, and mobile and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The major components in LiDAR consist of laser scanners, GPS, and navigation (IMU), among others. Notable areas of application for LiDAR include engineering, exploration, environment, corridor mapping, and ADAS, among numerous others. Notable industry players such as Faro Technologies Inc., Leica Geosystems Holdings AG, Trimble Navigation Limited, Velodyne LiDAR, Inc., and RIEGL USA Inc., have invested heavily in R&D to launch innovative products catering to major industries.
