LiDAR Market Overview :

Global LiDAR Market Report, published by Variant Market Research, forecast that the global market is expected to reach $1636 million by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 20.8% from 2016 to 2024. LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technology, which uses light in the form of pulsed laser to measure various targets. A LiDAR can generate pulses of laser light to a surface, and may go up to 150,000 pulses per second and airborne LiDAR instrument uses a laser scanner with up to 400,000 pulses of light per second. LiDAR is commonly used in making high resolution maps with increased application in archaeology, geography, geology, seismology, forestry, airborne laser swath mapping (ALSM) and among others.


Rising technological advancements, increasing use of drones and adoption of LiDAR in various government sectors are expected to drive the LiDAR market. Moreover, development in driverless cars and rise in 3D printing is also expected to fuel the market. However lack of skilled personals and high cost of the instrument may hinder the growth of the market. Untapped markets in developing countries could provide an opportunity for the market.

The LiDAR market is segmented based on the product, component, end-user, application and geography. Product can be segmented into terrestrial, aerial, mobile, and short range. Component type is further segmented into laser, inertial navigation system, Camera, GPS/GNSS receiver, and Micro electro mechanical system. Furthermore, application is segmented into Corridor mapping, Seismology, Exploration and Detection and Others. End-user can be segmented into defense and aerospace, civil engineering, archaeology, forestry and agriculture, mining industry and transportation.


By geography the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW. The U.S., Mexico and Canada are covered under North America wherein Europe covers France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain and others. Asia-Pacific covers China, India, Japan, South Korea and others.
