LiDAR Market Size Worth USD 4.17 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research

Technological advancements in LiDAR technology is one of the key factors driving Terrestrial Light, Detection, and Ranging (LiDAR) Market revenue growth.

Vancouver, Dec. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global terrestrial LiDAR market size was USD 1.38 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a steady revenue CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period, according to the latest analysis by Emergen Research. Technological advancements in LiDAR technology and increasing need for Three Dimensional (3D) imaging technology for various applications are major factors driving market revenue growth.
Terrestrial LiDAR is a remote sensing technique, in which light in the form of a laser is utilized to measure varying distances to the Earth. This technique is also known as 3D laser scanning as this combines 3D scanning and laser scanning. 3D laser scanning technology can document and record various objects, structures, buildings, and topographies, from a tiny, exquisitely detailed artwork to a massive and georeferenced landscape.

Commercially, laser scanning has shown to be particularly effective in the documentation of constructions such as oil and chemical refineries, highways, bridges, and other complex structures, producing precise ‘as-built’ measured drawings in a fraction of time and cost of older systems.

However, high initial costs of terrestrial LiDAR systems is a key factor, which could restrain market revenue growth. The necessary hardware, such as scanners, LiDAR sensors, and data processing software, can be expensive, particularly for high-accuracy or long-range systems. Due to the cost, smaller companies or those with smaller resources could find it challenging to deploy terrestrial LiDAR technology. Massive amounts of point cloud data are generated by terrestrial LiDAR, which requires specialized equipment and experience to handle and understand.

Some Key Highlights from the Report

  • The phase-shift segment is expected to account for largest revenue share in the global terrestrial LiDAR market during the forecast period. This is because phase shift LiDAR offers high measurement accuracy. Phase shift LiDAR can detect distances with an accuracy of less than one millimeter. This degree of accuracy can be very useful in applications that require precise measurements such as industrial metrology, engineering, and construction.
  • The Transport Layer Security (TLS) system authentication segment is expected to register steadily fast revenue growth rate in the global terrestrial LiDAR over the forecast period. This is because terrestrial LiDAR systems are helpful for protecting and keeping a watch on the environment. In addition to the evaluation of forest resources, it permits the examination of vegetation, monitoring of land deterioration, and evaluation of habitat characteristics.
  • The Building Information Modelling (BIM) segment is expected to account for significantly large revenue share in the global terrestrial LiDAR market over the forecast period. This is due to increasing use of BIM software to create a 3D model of building using the point cloud data.
