LIDAR Market Size, Share, Industry Demand, Revenue Forecast, Business Opportunities, Strategies, Development Status and Impact of COVID

LIDAR Market, By Type (Terrestrial, Airborne), By Component (Laser, Navigation, Camera, GPS Receiver), By Application (Seismology, Corridor mapping, Exploration), By End-users (Oil & Gas, Transportation, Mining, Tourism) - Forecast 2023

Market Scenario:

According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global LiDAR market size is expected to reach USD 4158.8 million, with a CAGR of 14.14% from 2017 to 2023 (forecast period). The report discusses crucial developments in the global LiDAR market in light of the novel COVID-19 pandemic. The report offers a meticulous overview of the different areas of the sector that are likely to be impacted by the pandemic.

Light Detection and Range (LiDAR) is one of the remote sensing methods that absorbs light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the earth. These light pulses are coupled with other data recorded by the airborne system to provide reliable, three-dimensional information about the shape of the earth to analyze the surface characteristics. LiDAR laser techniques offer a range of advantages to the industrial sector, including automotive, geographic survey, land mapping, and construction, among others. Continuous 360 degrees of visibility and precise depth of information add fuel to the growth of the market.

The LiDAR market can be segmented by product-type, technology, component, and functional areas.

By product-types, the market is segmented into airborne LiDAR, terrestrial LiDAR, and others. ‘Others’ comprise bathymetric, mobile & static, and topographic LiDAR. The airborne segment had the highest market share in 2017, followed by terrestrial LiDAR. These systems are affixed on helicopters or fixed0wing aircraft to capture images of wide areas rapidly. The terrestrial segment is projected to grow at a rapid growth rate to touch USD 1,693.4 million by 2023.

Various technologies of LiDAR covered include 1D, 2D, and 3D. The 2D segment is expected to accrue revenues incrementally over the forecast period owing to its usage for navigation, measurement, and detection purposes. The 3D segment is expected is grow robustly in the global LiDAR market by 2023. It is expected to exhibit a 15.77% CAGR during the assessment period owing to its use in security systems to safeguard commercial buildings.

By component, the market is segmented into navigation & positioning systems, laser scanner, and other components. The laser scanner segment is projected to exhibit a 15.06% CAGR over the forecast period owing to the integration of ToF in these devices. The technique is used for assessing construction sites, historic buildings, and other industrial applications. The navigation & positioning systems segment is touted to touch a valuation of USD 1,514.9 million by 2023.

Functional areas suitable for LiDAR application include urban planning, corridor mapping, engineering, cartography, meteorology, environment, and ADAS & driverless car. Among these, the corridor mapping segment is expected to clock an impressive revenue of USD 973.7 million by 2023.
