The LiDAR market is expected to witness a high-growth phase from its traditional applications like corridor mapping and cartography as well as emerging applications like urban planning and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Aerial surveying is set to receive a boost with the development of the Geiger-mode LiDAR technology which enables high-resolution data collection even from higher elevations. At the same time, mobile LiDAR systems are becoming more compact and affordable, especially in the automotive sector, with the introduction of Velodyne LiDAR’s “puck” device. These recent breakthroughs are expected to not only drive the LiDAR market in the coming years but also lead to introduce new market segments.

In the report, the LiDAR Market is segmented by product, component, application, and geography covering all the existing and emerging technologies in this market. The product types of LiDAR include airborne and ground-based systems.
