Automotive LiDAR Sensors Market By Product Type (Mechanical LiDAR, Solid-state LiDAR), By Application (Semi-autonomous Vehicle, Autonomous Vehicle) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2019 – 2027


The global automotive LiDAR sensors market is expected to reach at US$ 919.6 Mn with a CAGR of 19.87% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Automotive LiDAR sensors are used in semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles to enhance their navigation capability. LiDAR is a sensing method which creates a 3D map of the surrounding by detecting people and objects around the vehicle. It assesses the speed and route at which these objects are moving. Using this information, an on-board computer system can determine the safest way for vehicle to move forward. Integration of state-of-the-art systems such as collision warning and avoidance units, lane-keeping and departure warning units coupled with increasing investments in autonomous vehicles by established Tech giants such as Apple Inc., Google Inc. and Innoviz Technologies, Ltd. is driving the growth of automotive LiDAR sensors market worldwide. For instance, in June 2019, Innoviz Technologies, Ltd. has raised US$ 170 Mn in its series C funding round which will strengthen its position in the LiDAR market.

Today, people are inclined towards more comfort, safety and technology in their vehicles due to which they are switching to technologically advanced semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles. These vehicles comprise of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) which provide blind spot detection, night vision, and cross traffic warning, etc., aiding driver in decision making and offering the relaxed driving experience to the driver.

Overall, the combination of these advanced technologies will help in eliminating accidents caused due to human errors. As a result, the growing demand for semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles is projected to facilitate the growth of automotive LiDAR sensors market in the years to come.

"Solid-state LiDAR Sensors accounted for the Largest Market Share in 2018"

Solid-state LiDAR sensors are amongst the advanced type of LiDAR sensors. The segment captured the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to reign during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Being built on a micro-chip, these sensors are compact in size and have no moving parts like rotating mirror and optical rotating encoder which are present in mechanical LiDAR sensors. As a result, solid-state LiDAR sensors are more resilient to vibration. Solid-state LiDAR sensors are lightweight and are more compact as compared to mechanical LiDAR sensors. Where mechanical LiDAR sensors are required to be physically moved to change its direction, solid-state LiDAR sensors are capable of adjusting their direction by changing its pattern of optical emission to map the surrounding. This makes it attractive for car designer as it eliminates the need for bulky spinning LiDAR sensors mounted on a vehicle. In terms of cost, solid-state LiDAR sensors are cost-effective when compared with mechanical LiDAR sensors. Therefore, the cost of vehicle that comprises solid-state LiDAR sensors is expected to be cheaper than the one with mechanical LiDAR sensors. As a result, the growing preference for solid-state LiDAR sensors across the automotive industry is expected to drive the segment growth in the years to come.
