The global LiDAR Market has accounted to $1,811.5 Million in 2025 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 12 % during the forecast period of 2020 to 2025 majorly driven by the rising demand of mapping and surveying in various applications such as agriculture, infrastructure, transportation, and corridor mapping. The technological superiority of LiDAR compared to its alternatives along with the capability to provide enhanced efficiency with reduced human efforts is expected to drive the market growth in the near future.

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR stands for light detection and ranging or it can also be defined as laser imaging detection and ranging   It is a remote sensing method in which light is used in the form of a laser to measure variable distances to the earth. It is a combination of 3D scanning and laser scanning hence sometimes it can be defined as 3D laser scanning. LiDAR can be segmented into three types they are Solid-State LiDAR, Airborne LiDAR, and Terrestrial LiDAR. Some of the benefits of using LiDAR technology are the ability to capture large amounts of area in a relatively small amount of time and low requirement of manual labor. LiDAR mapping system uses the most convenient technique to cover or scan the area which is called as drone lidar survey. LiDAR systems collect information by sending thousands of pulses of light per second and by calculating the time it takes for the pulse to reach the LiDAR sensor. This results in the accurate analysis and 3D description of geometric structures.

LiDAR can provide accurate information even in the case of obstructions such as bridges and tunnels. LiDAR in automobiles is used in self-driving cars as it can provide visibility in all directions all the time. The precise distance of the objects in relation with the car can be precisely known through LiDAR technology. Geospatial industry is expected to witness significant growth when compared to other segments and is expected to reach $706.7 million by 2025. LiDAR systems that incorporate a micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) scanner have a high signal to background ratio which results in high performance.
