LIDAR market was valued at $332.2 million in 2016 and is projected to reach $1.4 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 21.4 % from 2017 to 2024.Aerial LIDAR technology leads the market garnering a revenue of $182.5 million and growing with the highest growth rate, having a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period.

LIDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging. It is a remote sensing method which uses light in the form of a pulsed laser in order to measure the ranges to the Earth. These light pulses, which are combined with various data recorded by the airborne system, generate accurate, precise, 3D information. It is a surveying method which measures distance to a target by illuminating that very target with a pulsed laser light, and measuring the reflected pulses with the help of a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3D-representations of the target. LIDAR technology generally uses ultraviolet, visible, or near infrared light for imaging the objects. It can also target a wide range of materials, including non-metallic objects, rocks, rain, chemical compounds, aerosols, clouds and even single molecules.The improvisation of automated processing ability of LIDAR technology in the terms of image resolutions is a major factor which is driving the LIDAR market. The advancement in the data processing capabilities over other surveying technologies is also driving the market growth. A hike in the demand of advanced 3D imaging technology can also push the growth of the LIDAR market. However the lack of awareness regarding LIDAR technology and its benefits may resist the market growth. Moreover, the high cost of LIDAR system components, such as laser scanners, navigation system, 3D cameras, leading to high cost of LIDAR systems, can restrain the growth of market. The ever increasing demand upgraded and improvised automated vehicles can act as a major opportunity for the LIDAR system market.
