Market Highlights

The global LiDAR market is projected to witness an impressive CAGR of 14.14% over the forecast period of 2018-2023, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an extensively studied report.

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is the process which uses light waves to discern the dimensions of the Earth and its surrounding satellites. They are used in bathymetric and topographic purposes. LiDAR is experiencing high demand from the government sector in various countries. LiDAR is used in conjunction with drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for surveying territories of public infrastructural projects which boosts the market. 

Growth in demand for high-end sensors in diverse applications is expected to stimulate the growth of the market. Sophisticated sensors and high-quality cameras of LiDAR provide high-resolution images owing to which LiDAR finds use in mapping and is also used in gathering real-time information.

3D imaging of land provides accurate dimensions which is another factor likely to push the market further. 3D imaging LiDAR is increasingly adopted by government agencies for topographical purposes since they are equipped with time of flight (ToF) which allows for high precision capturing.

On the downside, the high costs associated with LiDAR system installation might restrict the growth of the market since they increase the overall cost of projects and are not preferred by small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Meanwhile, the emergence of self-driving cars is expected to provide an impetus to the growth of the global LiDAR market. Integration of LiDAR systems in vehicles can help revolutionize travel since they are able to discern objects from humans and can minimize collisions and reduce traffic.
