Global LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) Market

Market Overview

LiDAR technology is potentially becoming a game-changing solution for industry verticals such as aerospace & defense, automotive, mining, oil & gas among others. Moreover, mounting demand for 3D imagery supporting the adoption of LiDAR technology for government applications such as railways and roadways management, forestry are driving the growth of global LiDAR market. Leading automotive players are massively investing in this business for diversifying their product portfolio and market expansion. For instance, in 2016, Ford Motor Company and Baidu Inc. together invested USD 150 million in a Silicon Valley-based LiDAR technology company named Velodyne LiDAR for commercializing the company’s laser-based sensors. Recently, Oryx Vision an Israel based company invested USD 50 million in LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology for self-driving automobiles. These investments are spurring the growth of LiDAR market.

Goldstein Research analyst forecast the LIDAR market is anticipated to reach USD 5.76 billion by 2024 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 23.0% during the analysis period 2016-2024.
