LiDAR enables the collection of a wealth of information for numerous applications and delivers several advantages over traditional methods of aerial mapping. This technology is changing the paradigm of terrain mapping and attaining popularity in several applications such as floodplain mapping, forest inventory, geomorphology, hydrology, landscape ecology, urban planning, survey assessments, volumetric calculations and coastal engineering. These applications can benefit from a combination of LiDAR and geographic information systems (GIS) in order to manage and conduct analysis, disseminate
and visualize LiDAR data. Due to these and many other factors, the LiDAR market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.0% between 2017 and 2022 to attain a market value of $4.5 billion in 2022. Many alternatives to LiDAR can be considered as failed technologies; it follows, then, that the need for a more accurate, more reliable and easier method of collection of the data of the region, and the resulting growth LiDAR technology are key drivers for the market.

However, the growth of the LiDAR market is limited by factors such as lack of industrial standards of operations and non-interoperability of technologies, as well as the high cost associated with it. If the LiDAR market were at a different stage of its evolution, these restraints could hinder market growth. However, it is expected that further technological advances will bring cost corrections and that standards of operation will improve. The key opportunities for the market are in the adoption of LiDAR by small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) and superior growth potential in emerging economies. Once the cost of LiDAR is reduced, SMEs and emerging economies are forecasted to deploy these devices in various application sectors in big numbers.

The types of LiDAR available on the market are airborne, terrestrial, mobile and UAV. Currently, airborne LiDAR is the most commonly used; therefore, this had the largest revenue share in 2016, at REDACTED, and will remain the largest market, expected to reach nearly REDACTED by 2022. The mobile LiDAR market is expected to have the highest CAGR – REDACTED – for the period of 2017 through 2022.

Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (ROW). North America had the highest revenue in the market in 2016 at REDACTED and it is expectedto continue to dominate the revenue share, with a value of REDACTED in 2022. Since North America is a technologically advanced region, the LiDAR technology initially formed a strong base in the region.However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the best market potential to grow, at a CAGR of REDACTED during 2017 through 2022. This growth potential is due to the fact that emerging nations in
thisregion are involved in heavy industrialization.
