The global lidar market size was valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 2.90 billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 20.1% during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to growing adoption of lidar system in engineering and construction application, geographical information system, its easy regulation, and in various industries for different purpose.
Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) is a remote sensing method which uses light in form of laser to measure variable distances or ranges to the Earth. It is used to make high-resolution maps which are applied in archeology, geology, forestry, laser guidance, surveying, geodesy, geography, seismology, atmospheric physics, geomatics, and laser altimetry. It enables the detection, examination, and mapping of the objects easier.
The demand for 3D imagery is increasing which are used in corridor mapping, 3D mapping, and city planning. Various manufacturers’ as-well-as end-users have been impacted due to covid-19. Lidar market of exploration which include oil & gas and mining is mainly impacted due to lockdown imposed across the globe and impacted the economies of the countries.
