Global LiDAR Market

The Global LiDAR Market, according to the report by Market Research Future (MRFR), is slated to grow at 14.14% CAGR during the forecast period, and is expected to reach a substantial market valuation of USD 4158.8 million by 2023.

Drivers and Restraints

Growing demand for 3D imagery for accurate land dimensions is expected to boost market share by 2023. The 3D imaging is reinforced with flight time (ToF) capable of accurately capturing large areas with high precision. Adopting LiDAR systems for topographical purposes by government authorities is likely to drive market growth over the forecast time period. On the other hand, these systems' higher installation costs may hamper the market.

The advent of self-driving cars is poised to revolutionize travel to minimize traffic and lessen accidents. The designers of these vehicles agreed to use LiDAR systems to increase their intelligence because of their ability to differentiate objects from humans.
