The LiDAR market is expected to rise to more than $1 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 16.32% between 2014 and 2020.

”LiDAR”, which stands for light detection and ranging, is a laser profiling system that generates location and elevation data to define the earth’s surface and other features such as tree canopies. LiDAR systems are either airborne, that is, mounted on an airplane or a helicopter or they are terrestrial systems. This technology was conceptualized in the 1960s for atmospheric measurements and military purposes, but its commercial adoption increased only in the past couple of decades. A typical LiDAR system includes a laser scanner, global positioning system (GPS), and inertial measurement unit (IMU). Sometimes, high-resolution digital cameras are used in conjunction with LiDAR and their inputs are combined to obtain more comprehensive results in case of complex terrain mapping applications.

The conventional LiDAR systems were very costly and therefore their usage was restricted to applications where the area to be surveyed was large. But, in the past two decades, technological advancements in semiconductors have brought about a reduction in the size and the cost of LiDAR systems. The level of accuracy of images produced by these systems has also increased significantly and that has led to the increased awareness and adoption in recent times.

This research study segments the LiDAR market on the basis of different types of products, components required, applications, and geographies.
