Though LiDAR was developed in the early 1960s, it was just used for military and the government applications only. However, due to the technological developments and reduction in cost of LiDARs, it is heavily penetrating into the commercial and industrial sectors. The market research report Global LiDAR Market - Forecast & Analysis (2013 - 2018) covers both the government/military and the commercial applications of LiDAR systems. The few of the major applications currently harnessing LiDAR technology are: corridor mapping, forestry, mining, topographic surveying, and volumetric mapping. The extensive research study conducted resulted in identifying civil engineering and planning application as one of the top revenue grossing application for LiDAR systems. However, the highest growth rate is expected for the corridor mapping application which is estimated to grow at a rate of more than 20% annually from 2013 to 2018.
The total market which is currently valued at $218.87 million is estimated to grow at an excess rate of 15% annually. The total market is divided among various product types such as: airborne, terrestrial, mobile, and short range. The maximum contribution currently is from the airborne LiDAR type. One of the reasons for the highest share of airborne LiDAR is its high average selling price. Also, as compared to other types, airborne LiDAR Market is mature and reliable. Thus, it is preferred by users for whom the budget is not a constraint. However, the airborne LiDAR Market has the lowest CAGR among all the product types. This indicates the shift in trend in the LiDAR market. Due to innovations in terrestrial and mobile LiDAR systems, the cost-benefit ratio for these LiDAR types is expected to surpass that of airborne LiDAR system. It can be said that the terrestrial and mobile LiDAR systems are disrupting the airborne LiDAR Market to some extent.
Geographical split for each and every type is included in the report. The report describes the overall market into four major geographical segments, namely, North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW. North America and Europe are the market leader in the overall LiDAR Market followed by APAC. In ROW, the Middle East, and Africa is coming up with this technology because of its benefits in a wide range of applications.
Major companies covered in the report are: Airborne imaging, Inc. (U.S.), Leica Geosystems (U.S.), Optech Incorporated (Canada), Trimble Navigation Limited (U.S.), RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH (Austria), and Renishaw Plc (U.K.).
