The Global LiDAR market is estimated to be USD 1.33 billion in 2015, and is projected to reach USD 2.42 billion at a projected CAGR of 12.42% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. LiDAR technology finds applications in archaeology, seismology, geology, soil science, geomorphology, geomatics, agriculture, forestry, research involving physics and astronomy.

One of the major driving forces for LiDAR market is the increasing use of drones for multiple applications. Potential in delivery and automation sectors are leading organizations to invest in drone research. Encouragement from the government sector in automation and adoption of LiDAR to various government sector activities like flood relief and management is also causing the industry to grow positively. Miniaturization of hardware components means that the technology can now be adapted to new applications where the hardware is airborne. The growth in research and development of self driven cars in automotive sector beckons increasing use of LiDAR. Also, growth of 3D printing market and increasing demand for 3D printed images are driving the market. The market is constrained by relatively high cost of equipment and surveying applications. Also, unawareness and lack of education when it comes to the technology hinders growth. The development of new and better SFM (Structure From Motion) technology as a competition limits the market.

The market is segmented on the basis of technology (Rayleigh LiDAR, Mie LiDAR, Raman LiDAR, Fluorescence LiDAR), on the basis of application (Airborne LiDAR, Terrestrial LiDAR, Mobile LiDAR, Short Range LiDAR), on the basis of component (GPS, Data Storage and Management, Inertial Navigation Systems, Laser Scanner), on the basis of end user application (Civil Engineering, Archeology, Mining & Forestry, Military, Corridor Mapping and Topographical Survey). A bulk of LiDAR market revenue comes from Civil Engineering. By 2020, corridor mapping is expected to be the biggest revenue generating sector.

The market is segmented on the basis of region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa and Middle East). Analysis indicates that North America is the biggest market in the world now but Asia Pacific is catching up faster due to increasing low cost manufacturing activities.

Key players in the market mentioned in the report are SICK AG, Hokuyo Automatic Co Ltd., Velodyne LiDAR, Quanergy, Phoenix Aerial Systems, 3D Laser Mapping, Quantum Spatial, Airborne Imaging Inc., Avent LiDAR technology, Faro Technology, GeoDigital and Leica GeoSystems AG.
