LiDAR market was valued USD at 1.39 Billion in 2015 and is estimated to reach USD 3.22 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.4% between 2016 and 2022. The market growth is attributed to the encouragement of government and institutes for adoption of LIDAR. Automation that leads to increased efficiency and reduced human efforts is also a reason for the impressive growth of the market. It has applications in corridor mapping, exploration, metrology, ADAS, engineering, and environment; the impressive growth of this market can be attributed to these applications. In addition, the application such as engineering projects, vertical integration, and automated cars is also creating opportunities for LiDAR market globally.

The ground-based segment held the largest market share. Mobile LiDAR systems are mounted on a mobile platform, preferably on a terrestrial vehicle. The advantage of being mounted on a vehicle is that it enables LiDAR to scan large areas accessible by road. The automotive sector is emerging as an application for mobile sensors and the number of premium cars equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is rising each year. This is expected to further boost the mobile LiDAR systems market.

Laser scanner segment held the largest share of the overall component market. The rise in applications of LiDAR has resulted in the increasing deployment of lasers. In addition, the high wavelength of laser scanner is one of the key reason for its largest market share. The corridor mapping application accounted for the largest share of the overall market. Increasing infrastructure development and use of LIDAR during construction of roadways, highways, and railways drives the overall corridor mapping application market.

LiDAR Market

APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. Increasing awareness among customer regarding the benefits and government support is the reason for high growth of this market. In addition, the regional development in APAC, especially in countries such as China and India, is expected to contribute to the growing demand for LiDAR sensors in this region. Recently, in India, LiDAR was made mandatory for all highway projects which is expected to benefit local companies such as Genesys international Corporation (India).

One of the key restraining factors for this market is the high cost and high expense in the surveying application. it has been deemed as a high-cost mapping data purchase method in comparison to conventional methods. However, over the past few years, the number of equipment and services providers, especially in the Northern U.S., has improved significantly. The LiDAR cost will reduce as more players enter the market globally. At present, it is not cost-effective for small area projects, but with handheld mapping set to grow in coming years, this issue would be addressed.

Optech, Inc. (Canada) is one of the leading providers of LiDAR technology for terrestrial mapping. The company relies on product development and innovation to meet the changing requirements of the market. Optech has a wide range of products for industrial, military, and space research applications. The company has introduced many innovative products. For instance, in December 2014, it introduced the world’s first multispectral airborne LiDAR sensor which is capable of classifying target materials based on the intensity.
