The global LiDAR market size is expected to be worth around US$ 3.8 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global LiDAR market size was valued at US$ 1.2 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.3% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
Increasing acceptance in environmental mapping, automobile safety application, construction and architectural sectors for monitoring, and 3D-modeling applications arenas is expected to boost the market growth. Furthermore, increasing development and adoption of self-driving cars and trucks is expected to boost the market growth, as Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is one of the key sensing technologies that is required to enable hybrid to full autonomous driving.
The advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) application segment is expected to grow at a remarkable pace owing to surging incorporation in automotive safety and forward-collision avoidance systems. In U.K., the regulatory authorities have mandated installation of certain automotive safety technologies such as the collision avoidance technologies. The Euro NCAP Advanced aims to provide buyers with clear guidance regarding the safety benefits offered by technologies such as blind spot monitoring, lane support, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), speed alert, attention assist, vision enhancement, and pre-crash sensing. Rising developments in 3D scanning solutions is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2018, Faro Technology, Inc. introduced new airborne LiDAR scanning in partnership with STORMBEE, in order to provide cost effective airborne 3D scanning solution.
On the basis of product type, the market is segmented as airborne, terrestrial, and mobile and UAV. The airborne segment accounted for the major share of the market, which is anticipated to increase in the next few years on account of increasing adoption of aerial mapping devices. Aerial LiDAR is an accurate and thorough method of creating digital elevation models, thereby replacing photogrammetry.
Terrestrial LiDAR can be both mobile and stationary and takes place on the Earth's surface. Stationary terrestrial scanning is a frequently preferred survey method for monitoring, conventional topography, forensics, and cultural heritage documentation. Mobile and UAV LiDAR operate in both mobile and aerial modes and works on the Earth's surface and surrounding environment respectively.
Rising adoption of mobile and UAV LiDAR systems and increasing number of new product launches is expected to draw huge investments from key participants, thus driving the market demand in the years to come. For instance, in October 2019RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH launched the lightweight airborne LiDAR for UAVs.
Based on component, the LiDAR market is segmented into GPS component, laser scanners, navigation Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) device, and other complementary LiDAR devices. Aerial scanning and mapping operations are expected to witness increased demand on account of higher adoption globally.
Laser scanners are used to record an intensity value to provide a return signal strength that can be helpful to distinguish objects of variable reflectivity. Laser scanner LiDAR produced 2D point cloud data, which can be used in localization, mapping, and object and environment modeling. The demand for laser scanners is expected to increase substantially with a CAGR of 15.3% during the forecast period.
Based on application, the market is segmented into corridor mapping, exploration, engineering, (ADAS), environment, and other LiDAR applications. The corridor application segment accounted for the maximum share of the market in 2019. The ADAS application is anticipated to register the highest growth with a CAGR of 18.5% on account of surging incorporation of LiDAR-based sensors in numerous automotive safety applications.
The corridor mapping application is expected to register a moderate growth however witness a reduction in overall market share during the forecast period. Low-speed collision avoidance systems and driver assistance systems are anticipated to be among the more popular technologies. The integration of map-enabled systems also provides diverse application options leading to advantages such as lane departure systems, driver assistance systems, and intelligent front lighting systems enabled by the united adaptive front lighting.
