LIDAR is an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging, a remote sensing technology that measures the distance of the target with a laser. It’s a narrow laser beam, which maps physical features with high resolution. It is been used in various application such as geomatics, geology, seismology, archaeology, forestry, remote sensing, etc. This technology was only been used by government and military services initially. Currently, LIDAR technology is being used in commercial sectors due to various technological advancements and cost effective solutions, which makes the current LIDAR market very attractive. 

The recent advancements and cost effectiveness are some factors that are driving the technology. As this technology is being commercially used these days, it has numerous opportunities in the coming years. This market is very lucrative as there are many technological developments that have reduced the size of the LIDAR and provide very affordable and accurate solutions. 

LIDAR market analysis by Component

LIDAR system comprises of 3 major components, namely global positioning system (GPS), inertial navigation unit and laser sensor. Micro electro mechanical system and camera are two additional components that are used in LIDAR system. Global positioning system is most commonly used these days. GPS is used in various mobile devices, vehicles, etc. As per the components used in the LIDAR system, it is been used in various applications accordingly.

LIDAR market analysis by Product type

Airborne, terrestrial and mobile are three different product types of LIDAR system. Airborne imaging technology is fixed and mounted on the wings of helicopters. It is also used in high density applications. Airborne technology is most commonly used for detection of the target, whereas mobile technology is used in project planning and data collection.

LIDAR market analysis by Application

LIDAR systems are used in variety of applications such as archaeology, geology, seismology, geomatics, forestry, remote sensing, corridor mapping, mining, surveying, volumetric and contour mapping.
