Smartphone Lidar Market

Smartphone Lidar Market Global Forecast to 2029

Report Code: UC 6466 May, 2024, by

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology that uses pulsed lasers to measure distances to a target. In smartphones, LiDAR sensors are used for various applications such as augmented reality, object recognition and tracking, 3D scanning and modelling, improving camera performance. LiDAR are used in smartphones to improve the autofocus and depth-sensing capabilities of smartphone cameras, especially in low-light conditions.

Market Dynamics


  • Revolutionizing Smartphone Cameras
  • Increasing demand for 3D content and applications


  • High cost of LiDAR sensors
  • Software Development and Optimization


  • Rising Demand for Immersive AR/VR Experiences
  • Growing awareness of benefits of LiDAR technology


  • Sensor Integration Complexity

Drivers: Revolutionizing Smartphone Cameras

LiDAR's depth-sensing capabilities help cameras focus faster and capture sharper details, especially in low-light conditions. LiDAR’s bokeh perfection feature enables it to provide accurate background blurring for portrait mode, creating professional-looking bokeh effects with a smoother and more realistic transition between the subject and the background. Its 3D Capture and modeling feature allows it to scan objects and environments to create high-quality 3D models, opening doors for creative applications like 3D printing, virtual furniture shopping, and even sharing 3D scans of memorable locations.

Restraints: high cost of LiDAR sensors

LiDAR sensors are significantly more expensive than other smartphone components, like cameras. This increases the overall cost of the phone, putting them out of reach for many consumers. LiDAR systems consists of a pulsed laser, a sophisticated piece of tech that significantly drives up the sensor's cost compared to traditional smartphone components like cameras. LiDAR data requires intensive processing to translate laser pulses into accurate 3D maps. This involves specialized algorithms and hardware, adding to the overall expense. Hence, the high cost of LiDAR sensors currently restricts them to high-end flagship smartphones. This puts them out of reach for a large segment of the market, limiting the potential user base.

Opportunities: Rising Demand for Immersive AR/VR Experiences

Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are becoming increasingly popular, and LiDAR plays a crucial role in making these experiences more immersive and realistic. LiDAR's precise 3D mapping capabilities allow for accurate placement of virtual objects in the real world, enhancing the AR experience. For VR, LiDAR can help track hand movements and map real-world environments for more natural interactions within the virtual space. Unlike cameras, LiDAR isn't limited by visibility. It can penetrate fog, dust, and even light foliage, allowing for effective data collection in challenging environments.

Challenges: Sensor Integration Complexity

LiDAR sensors consume more power than other smartphone components and generate additional heat. Integrating them efficiently requires careful consideration of power management, thermal management, and battery life optimization. Moreover, precise calibration and alignment of LiDAR sensors with other camera modules are crucial for accurate depth perception and seamless integration. This adds another layer of complexity to the manufacturing and production process.
