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 US$ 919.6 million 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 capabilities. LiDAR is a sensing method that creates a 3D map of the surrounding area by detecting people and objects around the vehicle. It assesses the speed and route at which these objects are moving.

Using this information, an onboard computer system can determine the safest way for the vehicle to move forward. Integration of state-of-the-art systems such as collision warning and avoidance units, lane-keeping units, 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 the automotive LiDAR sensors market worldwide. For instance, in June 2019, Innoviz Technologies, Ltd. raised US$ 170 million 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 advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), which provide blind spot detection, night vision, cross-traffic warning, etc., aiding the driver in decision-making and offering a relaxed driving experience.

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

Market Snapshot

Solid-state LiDAR sensors accounted for the largest market share in 2018,

Solid-state LiDAR sensors are among the most advanced types 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 microchip, these sensors are compact in size and have no moving parts like a rotating mirror or an 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 more compact as compared to mechanical LiDAR sensors. Where mechanical LiDAR sensors are required to be physically moved to change their direction, solid-state LiDAR sensors are capable of adjusting their direction by changing their pattern of optical emission to map their surroundings.

This makes it attractive to car designers 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 a vehicle that comprises solid-state LiDAR sensors is expected to be lower than that of a vehicle with mechanical LiDAR sensors. As a result, the growing preference for solid-state LiDAR sensors across the automotive industry is expected to drive segment growth in the years to come.

North America Garnered the Largest Market Share in 2018

The North American region is home to many LiDAR manufacturing companies like Velodyne Lidar, Luminar Technologies, Inc., Ouster, Inc., Quanergy Systems, Inc., LeddarTech, etc. These well-established companies are heavily investing in autonomous technologies to grab a large piece of the market. Also, the governments of countries in this region have strict regulations for vehicle safety. In the U.S. and Canada, it is mandatory to install electronic stability control (ESC), forward collision warning, and an automatic emergency braking system (AEB) in vehicles. Also, awareness among people about road safety and vehicle performance is driving the market for automotive LiDAR sensors in North America.
