LiDAR Market Global Forecasts upto 2017-2025April 9, 2021
Global LiDAR Market: Overview
LiDAR, acronym for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technology that emits light towards a target object to unearth information about it and gauge the range of a distant target from the light that is being reflected back. It can be compared to RADAR and SONAR in many ways. However, unlike a RADAR and SONAR, LiDAR uses light waves of shorter wavelengths. The wavelengths of the electronic spectrum for LiDAR technology are mostly within the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.
The LiDAR technology helps in measuring of 3D structures directly and assessing the underlying terrain with high resolution and data accuracy. The two main types of LiDAR are Airborne LiDAR, consisting of topographic and bathymetric LiDAR, and Terrestrial LiDAR, consisting of mobile LiDAR and short range LiDAR.

Global LiDAR Market: Key Trends
The soaring demand for 3D imagery in different end use segments such as construction, transportation, power transmission, and defense and aerospace is the primary driving factor in the global LiDAR market. Additionally, LiDAR technology saves both cost and time which has resulted in their higher uptake compared to conventional methods of mapping. LiDAR technology has already superseded photogrammetry as it steals a march over the latter in terms of light independency and high accuracy.
Countering the growth in the global LiDAR market is the complexity in data interpretation because of dearth of standardization.
Global LiDAR Market: Market Potential
LiDARs find application in autonomous driving, which is yet to become mainstream. Once it so happens, their market will receive a substantial boost. LiDAR/INS integrated navigation systems can bring about continuous and accurate navigation solutions in GNSS-challenged environments, on different platforms that include mobile robot navigation, unmanned ground vehicles, and autonomous driving. Another factor working to their favor are their increasing availability and decreasing prices.
Depending upon the type of product, the global LiDAR market is segmented into terrestrial LiDAR and airborne LiDAR. Among them, airborne or aerial LiDAR mapping leads the market. Based on application again, the LiDAR market is divided into transmission lines, forestry, infrastructure, coastal, transportation, defense and aerospace, flood mapping, and others such as hydrography and mining. Different coastal applications contribute maximum to the LiDAR market because of the growing utilization of LiDAR in disaster management and control. In terms of growth, however, transmission lines will overtake all other segments in the LiDAR market because of robust demand for power utilities.
