Introduction of light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems has enabled the examination, detection, and mapping of objects easier than conventional methods. These systems are used over conventional surveying methods because of their ability to provide highly accurate data and 3D images in a shorter time. Improved automated processing ability of LiDAR systems in terms of image resolution and data processing capabilities over other technologies are the major factors that drive the global market. Other factors that supplement the growth of the LiDAR market as a whole include rising demand of 3D imaging technology across various application areas and the increasing adoption of aerial LiDAR systems to explore and detect places and obtain historic details. On the other hand, low awareness about the benefits of LiDAR systems and the use of expensive components in these systems namely, laser scanner, navigation system, and high-resolution 3D cameras collectively increase the cost of LiDAR systems. These factors cause less adoption of LiDAR technology and restrict the growth of this market.
Players in the market adopt product launch and collaborations as their key strategies to meet the customer demands and increase their customer base. Partnerships are likely to help the players set a common technology platform and share the technological requirement. This would ultimately help the market players to enhance their product portfolio with less investment and increase their market share across various regions. The cost cutting in operations is expected to lead the manufacturers to invest into advertisement activities and increase the awareness about the LiDAR systems across diverse industry verticals and geographic regions. In October 2014, Phoenix Aerial Systems collaborated with Pulse Aerospace to launch a single-rotor unmanned aerial system for Ranger LiDAR systemThe Vapor 55. Eventually, the rise in the use of LiDAR systems across various industries is likely to supplement the growth of the world LiDAR market.
