LiDAR Market: Snapshot
Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is an active, remote sensing and distance mapping technology. Over the past decade the technology has become synonymous with 3D scanning and sensing using sensors. The robust capabilities of 3D-LiDAR in enabling wide area scanning with unparalleled accuracy has made its usage popular in robotics and autonomous vehicle systems. The capabilities of real-time detection of data and high-precision maps inherent in 3D-LiDAR have unlocked exciting potential in self-driving cars application, thus opening lucrative prospects for market players. Several automakers who are serious on developing next generation autonomous cars can’t afford to ignore the vast potential of LiDAR. The technology provides better awareness of the surroundings essential for the success of self-driving cars, even more so without any human driver. However, the uptake of LiDAR for the automotive industry fails to match the pace of marked commercialization that autonomous cars have made in recent years. The exorbitant costs that several of the sensors used in these cars attract is a crucial factor impeding the uptake of LiDAR in the end-use industry. The availability of robust radars that can withstand the demanding conditions of vehicle operations is another factor that has impeded automakers to realize the full potential of the technology in self-driving cars.
Laser light offers precise and accurate data points in a short time span. Owing to their capability of offering accurate 3D scanning and data images in a very short span of time, LiDAR systems are always preferred over conventional method of surveying. LiDAR is generally utilized to create maps with high-resolution, and with applications in seismology, laser altimetry, geodesy, airborne laser swath mapping, geomatics, laser guidance, archaeology, atmospheric physics, geography, forestry, and geomorphology. LiDAR technology is utilized in navigating and controlling autonomous cars. There are two types of LiDAR namely, Terrestrial LiDAR and Airborne LiDAR. The word LiDAR stands for Laser Imaging, Detection and Ranging.
LiDAR Market- Driver and Restraints
One of the most important factors that is driving the growth of LiDAR market is improvisation in LiDAR system’s ability of automated processing. Few of the other factors that are supporting the growth of the market include rising demand for innovative 3D imaging technology throughout several areas of applications and growing adoption of aerial LiDAR systems to detect and explore various places and historical details. Along with these drivers, there are few factors that have a restraining effect on the growth of the LiDAR market. For instance, low awareness about various advantages associated with LiDAR system and the usage of costly elements in LiDAR system such as 3D cameras with high resolution, laser scanners, and navigation system are jointly making the LiDAR system an expensive one. All these aspects are impelling the end user industries to not adopt LiDAR technology and thus limiting its growth across the globe.
