$2.9 Billion LiDAR Market by Type, Component, Application, End-user and Region - Forecast to 2027 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "LiDAR Market By Type, Component, Application and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

According to the report, the LiDAR market was valued at $700.2 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $2.9 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 20.1% from 2020 to 2027.

According to LiDAR market forecast, North America dominated the market, contributing more than 40% share of the overall revenue, followed by Europe. Key impacting factors identified include automated systems in LiDAR, widening applications of LiDAR and rise in demand of LiDAR in 3D imaging. In addition, consumer awareness along with higher technological performance of LiDAR over alternatives technologies plays significant role in the LiDAR market growth.

Factors that supplement the LiDAR market growth include rise in demand for 3D imaging technology across various application areas and increase in adoption of aerial LiDAR systems to explore and detect places and historic details. However, less awareness about the benefits of LiDAR systems and use of expensive components in these systems, such as laser scanner, navigation system, and high-resolution 3D cameras collectively increase the cost of LiDAR systems. These factors limit the adoption of LiDAR technology, thereby restricting the LiDAR market share.

The other types of applications include pollution modeling, coastline management and meteorology. Numerous end-user industries make use of LiDAR products. The report analyzes usage of LiDAR among end-users such as defense & aerospace, civil engineering, archaeology, forestry & agriculture, mining and transportation. In order to understand regional trends, the market is analyzed from the perspectives of four regions namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East & Africa).

Region wise, the LiDAR market size is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America was the highest revenue generator in 2019, accounting for $281.5 million, and is estimated to garner $1,111.3 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 18.0%. This is attributed to the fact that LiDAR systems find their major application in military and civil infrastructure sector in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for $884.4 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 22.0% as per LiDAR market trends in 2019.
