$2.7+ Billion Worldwide LiDAR Industry to 2025 - Featuring Leosphere, Waymo & Valeo Among Others

DUBLIN, July 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "LiDAR Market with COVID-19 Impact Analysis by Type (Mechanical, Solid-state), Installation Type, Service (Aerial Surveying, GIS services), Application (Corridor Mapping, Environment, Engineering, ADAS & Driverless Cars), Component, Range, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The LiDAR market was valued at USD 981 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 2,766 million by 2025; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 20.7% from 2020 to 2025.

Major factors driving the growth of the LiDAR market include rising adoption of LiDAR systems in UAVs, increasing adoption of LiDAR in engineering and construction applications, use of LiDAR in geographical information systems (GIS) applications, the emergence of 4D LiDAR, and easing of regulations related to use of commercial drones in different applications.

Based on technology, 4D LiDAR to be the fastest-growing technology segment between 2020 and 2025

The growth of 4D LIDAR is attributed to the widespread adoption of 4D LiDAR in applications such as ADAS, driverless cars, and robotics. Autonomous vehicles require detailed understanding regarding the physical world around them, which can be achieved using 4D LiDAR. The adoption of 4D LiDAR would help in gaining a high level of automation in self-driving cars, robots, and other autonomous systems.

Based on installation type, ground-based LiDAR to be the fastest-growing installation type between 2020 and 2025

Ground-based LiDAR scanning technology is widely used across a wide range of applications, such as mapping, engineering, environment, and meteorology. Ground-based LiDAR systems are either stationary or movable and are further segmented into static LiDAR and mobile LiDAR. Ground-based LiDAR is typically mounted on a tripod or placed on a moving platform, for example, vehicles. These systems are less costly as compared to airborne-LiDAR systems.

Based on application, ADAS & driverless cars to be the fastest-growing application between 2020 and 2025

The automotive industry is looking forward to autonomous vehicles and assisted technologies. Automotive companies are coming up with innovative technologies in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) using new and affordable sensors. Rising adoption of solid-state LiDAR in ADAS and driverless cars for assuring safety is expected to boost the market in the coming years. Moreover, automotive giants are adopting LiDAR systems for their L3 level vehicles, which is expected to have a positive impact on the sales of these vehicle types.

APAC LiDAR market to record highest growth rate during forecast period

The LiDAR market in the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increase in surveying and mapping operations due to increasing infrastructural development, focus on forest management, and mining activities in the region. The increasing applications of airborne and ground-based LiDAR systems and the growing number of surveying and mapping activities in the region are anticipated to drive the demand for LiDAR in APAC.
