LiDAR Market size is projected to reach USD 2.8 billion by 2025 from an estimated USD 1.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 20.7% from 2020 to 2025. The rising adoption of LiDAR systems in UAVs, increasing adoption of LiDAR in engineering and construction applications, use of LiDAR in geographical information systems (GIS) applications, the emergence of 4D LiDAR, and easing of regulations related to the use of commercial drones in different applications are among the factors driving the growth of the LiDAR market.
Some of the prominent key players are: Leica Geosystems AG (Sweden), Trimble, Inc. (US), Teledyne Optech (Canada), FARO Technologies, Inc. (the US), RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH (Austria), Sick AG (Germany), Quantum Spatial (US), Beijing SureStart Technology Co. Ltd. (China), Velodyne Lidar, Inc. (the US), YellowScan (France)
Ground-based LiDAR segment to lead LiDAR market during the forecast period; Ground-based LiDAR is expected to dominate the LiDAR market, by installation type. Ground-based LiDAR is adopted widely in applications such as environment, meteorology, corridor mapping, and ADAS & driverless cars, among others. Ground-based LiDAR systems cost less and have less stringent approval criteria for mapping and surveying applications, which leads to the larger size of these systems
By range, medium-range projected to register highest CAGR between 2020 and 2025;
Medium-range LiDAR is used to detect objects in the range of 200–500 m. This LiDAR is used in engineering, mapping, environment, and exploration applications. Medium-range LiDAR is used where precision and cost-effectiveness are the primary concerns. These LIDAR sensors are used to provide 2D and 3D real-time data to easily identify objects within the range of 200–500 m. The market for medium-range LIDAR is expected to grow at the highest rate, driven by the use of medium-range LiDAR in engineering and construction applications.
By region, the Asia Pacific LiDAR market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR throughout the forecast period; The LiDAR market in the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increase in surveying and mapping operations due to increasing infrastructural development, rising focus on forest management, and growing mining activities in the region. The increasing applications of airborne and ground-based LiDAR systems and the growing number of surveying and mapping activities in the region are anticipated to drive the demand for LiDAR in APAC.
