Global Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) Market Research Report 2018



This report studies the global Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) market status and forecast, categorizes the global Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) market size (value & volume) by manufacturers, type, application, and region. This report focuses on the top manufacturers in North America, Europe, China, Japan, South Korea, India and other regions (Southeast Asia, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa)


Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), also written lidar, LiDAR or LADAR, is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. LIDAR is popularly used as a technology to make high-resolution maps, with applications in civil engineering, forestry & agriculture, transportation, urban mapping, etc. What is known as LIDAR is sometimes simply referred to as laser scanning or 3D scanning, with terrestrial and airborne applications.

As for the global Lidar industry, the industry structure is relative concentrated. The most of market share in production value is dominated by the top three giants Leica Geosystems, Trimble and Optech, which occupies closes to 65% totally in 2015. In the meantime, new entrants are emerging in this market, eroding the market share of traditional player as more applications are developed and diverse models are demanding in the market.


Key market drivers are the better performance than other technologies and ring demand for 3D mapping, as well as emerging supply market force for cheaper and better equipment to challenge current players.


Europe is holding the lion’s share globally in technology and production, while North America is the largest consumption area. Other emerging countries, like China and India, are increasing Lidar in various applications.


Despite the presence of competition problems, due to the Lidar’s special technology advantage in application, especially in unmanned automotive and 3D mapping, investors are very optimistic about this area; in future there will be more new investments into this industry.


Although sales of Lidar brought a lot of opportunities, the study group recommends the new entrants just having money but without technical advantage and downstream support do not to enter into the Lidar field.


The global Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) market is valued at 250 million US$ in 2017 and will reach 570 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 10.7% during 2018-2025.
