Global LIDARmarket studies about the current market situation and forecast progress of Light Detection and Ranging system across the globe. Light detection and ranging system is used as remote sensing method to scrutinize the earth surface and its demography. The LIDAR system use laser light pulses to measure the distance ranges to the earth. After the evaluation by the light pulses the data is integrated with other information collected from airborne assets to provide accurate geographic information about the location.

 The adoption of LIDAR systems amongst prominent sectors such as the development of topographic maps and construction engineering, analysis and monitoring of shoreline data and water level in these reservoirs. Use in Disaster management services and in forestry applications coupled with integration in ADAS technology for the automotive sector to provide multiple growth avenues for the market.


Market Dynamics

The twofold growth of the market by the end of 2030 is attributed to the developments made in LIDAR system to improve its adoption and implementation for number of applications. The ability to perform automated processing and ability to provide more accurate results to help the market propel at a considerable pace over the years

Over the recent years, the immense rate of deforestation and frequent occurrences of bushfires and wildfires in deciduous forests and rainforests increased the concerns for analysis of vegetation in these forest to identify ecosystem characteristics of the region. LiDAR technology provides easy, efficient and more secured way to gain insights about accurate information and saves a lot of time and efforts required for manual assessment.

For instance, to study vegetation patterns LiDAR data is collected at the Sierra National Forest to analyze site named Soaproot Saddle by Airborne Observation Platform of the National Ecological Observatory Network. This data provided information about the geographic conditions in the region and has provided accurate data by using remote sensor technology

Use of LiDAR technology in navigation and GPS systems as well as its integration to elevate performance of newly developed Automotive Driver and Assistance System (ADAS) software to provide strong growth upsurge in the market

According to our analysis, automotive connected cars and application of ADAS in automotive vehicles is expected to register a striking growth in the forecast period. The market of ADAS systems is calculated at around 7.2 Billion by the end of 2020, subsequently, use of LiDAR in camera-based solutions and the development of products considering the automotive sector requirements to provide noteworthy development for the market over the years

The development of products and effective 3D projections by the LiDAR systems is also help the consumers to explore the ability of these systems to project a VR landscape of the geographic topology which is expected to prove very effective in decision-making in time of natural calamity or development of construction infrastructure in the remote locations.

Many manufacturers are manufacturing discrete and full-form LiDARs to provide customers with products as per their requirements. This availability of diverse product portfolios also attracting wide range of consumers to the market. Additionally, 4D LiDAR systems are gaining considerable traction in the market. LiDAR system is replacing geographical mapping systems which use radio and sound waves based systems. The accurate and precise data generation, faster response rate, more detailed assessment are some of the benefits which are propelling the market further

Regional Analysis

Market of North America is anticipated to cater considerable share in the market. Increasing adoption of LiDAR technology for the connected cars system and automotive sector as a whole is the main reason behind the strong share of North America in the global market. The adoption of LiDAR for the forestry analysis, urban mapping, construction and infrastructure are also contributing for development of market in the U.S. Thus, cementing the share of North America in the global market

Additionally, Asia Pacific region is identified as the region with ability to emerge as a fastest growing region owing to the market development in countries with numerous automotive manufacturing clusters such as India, Japan and China. The use of LiDAR for ADAS technology and for smart driving solutions is increasing the traction for LiDAR market due to requirements of automotive OEMs.

According to our analysis, North America is expected to sustain its prominence in the market over the forecast period. Whereas,Asia Pacific region to progress at a substantial pace outpacing the other regions in the LiDAR market.
