Thus, each factor is expected to have a definite impact on the LiDAR market share.
Some Major Factors Impacting the LiDAR Market Growth are Given Below:
Automated Processing in LiDAR Systems
Automation of LiDAR processing system involves a combination of scientific algorithm computation and cloud-based processing of captured data points for sophisticated analysis. The algorithms make LiDAR systems more accurate and efficient in detecting target objects. Moreover, some of the automated LiDAR processing systems select appropriate algorithm as per environment, while other systems allow users to interact and select their choice of algorithm. These features increase the suitability of LiDAR in numerous applications, which fuel its adoption across the globe, thereby driving the growth of the market.
Better Performance than Other Technologies
LiDAR is used for detection and ranging applications similar to that of RADAR. However, its capabilities surpass that of RADAR, in terms of accuracy and response time. LiDAR can capture the object’s position as well as surface information with higher accuracy. In addition, it can obtain the 3D topographic information of object surface with high level of accuracy. Conversely, RADAR uses antennae for transmission and reception, which leads to delay in certain environmental conditions. This, in turn, has shifted the preference toward LiDAR systems, thus augmenting the growth of the global market.
Rising Demand For 3D Imaging
The demand for 3D imaging is witnessing rise in consumer, commercial, and government applications. LiDAR is being adopted in numerous government applications such as planning & monitoring activities related to roadways, railways, cities, and forest management. In consumer market, LiDARs are being identified as a technology for implementing driverless car concept in reality. In photogrammetry, LiDAR serves as an efficient alternative over other technologies, due to its accuracy and speed, thus driving the growth of the global market.
