Based on product type, the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system market is categorized into two major segments, namely:

  • Airborne LiDAR Systems
  • Terrestrial LiDAR Systems

The contribution of these product segments to the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) market in 2015 and 2023 is as shown in the figure below

LiDAR Market

As of 2015, airborne or aerial systems dominated the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) market. These systems accounted for over 50% of the global LiDAR market revenue in 2015 and are expected to exhibit steady growth during the forecast period 2016 – 2023. The dominance and anticipated growth of these systems can be credited to the benefits offered such as accuracy, ability to cover large areas quickly, and offer in-depth local elevation information. On the other hand, terrestrial LiDAR systems are presumed to witness maximum growth, outpacing their equivalent during the forecast period 2016 -2023. This can be attributed to the growing demand for UAV LiDAR systems in multiple application segments such as precision farming, entertainment, and media.

On the basis of end-use application, the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system market is categorized into following segments:

  • Defense and Aerospace
  • Engineering (Urban mapping and planning)
  • Corridor Mapping
  • Environmental
    • Coastal
    • Forestry
    • Flood Mapping
  • Transmission Lines
  • Others (Mining, etc.)

The contribution of these end-use verticals to the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) market in 2015 and 2023 is as shown in the figure below

LiDAR Market

As of 2015, corridor mapping was the largest revenue contributing end-use segment in the global LiDAR market. Infrastructural development coupled with the mandates promoting the use of the technology during the construction of highways, railways, and roadways have been instrumental in driving the demand for LiDAR technology in corridor mapping applications. For instance, in India, a mandate necessitates use of LiDAR systems for all highway projects. In addition, LiDAR systems are increasingly being used for disaster control and management applications, especially in the coastal areas and for setting-up of power transmission lines.

On the basis of geography, the global Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system market is segmented into following regions and countries.

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.

LiDAR Market

As of 2015, North America led the overall LiDAR market followed by Europe and Asia Pacific respectively. The region accounted for around 38% of the global LiDAR market revenue and is anticipated to witness robust growth during the forecast period 2016 – 2023. The U.S. represents the largest individual LiDAR market worldwide. The on-going research and expenditure to develop advanced LiDAR systems has been instrumental in pushing the uptake of LiDAR systems in the country, especially among defense and government agencies. Developed regions including North America and Europe are expected to witness comparatively better growth in the first half of the forecast period. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated to register maximum growth over the forecast period 2016 – 2023. The anticipated growth is expected to be majorly driven by demand from countries including India and China.
