LiDAR is mainly used for surveying. The process includes measuring distance of a target by hitting it with a pulsed laser light (mainly, ultraviolet, visible or near infrared light).

The reflected laser then returns, having the information with it, which can be deduced using a sensor which calculates the difference in laser return time for the distance of the object and uses the wavelength to form a 3D image of the very target. LiDAR technology can be used to target various materials such as rocks, rain, clouds, chemicals and even molecules.

Market Dynamics

LiDAR technology is highly capable of giving excellent results in terms of image resolutions. This is a major factor driving the global LiDAR market.

The increasing adoption of aerial LiDAR systems to explore and detect places and historic details is driving the market growth. Constantly advancing data processing abilities and steep growth in the demand of advanced 3D imaging technology is also expected to stimulate the growth of LiDAR market globally.

However, high cost of LiDAR systems such as high resolution cameras and navigation systems, can resist the market growth. Additionally, the lack of awareness about LiDAR technology and its assistances is declining the market growth.

However, the constantly rising demand of enhanced and improvised, fully automated vehicles has urged a huge requirement of LiDAR systems, acting as an opportunity for the market.
