Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Adoption by UAV Sector to Propel Growth

LiDAR technology is used for obtaining geographical information for mapping studies. Owing to this, there has been an increasing demand for this technology from the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) sector, thereby augmenting the global UAV LiDAR market growth. In addition to this, most of the LiDAR systems consist of a multi-sensor method further comprising of three time-synchronized components, namely, a laser scanner unit, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). The presence of these technologically advanced lasers and sensor parts help in increasing its operability, thereby aiding to the expansion of the market for UAV LiDAR in the forecast period.

On the contrary, the lack of proper training institutes and skilled technicians to operate UAVs may pose significant challenges to the market in the forecast period. Additionally, various governments are imposing stringent regulations on altitude and night time use of drone radars to avoid aerial accidents. This may cause hindrance to the overall market in the forecast period.

Nevertheless, the development of dynamic sensor technology, namely, the warning systems and crash avoidance, may boost growth. This, coupled with the integration of optical altimeter technology for determining accurate calculations concerning size and weight, are likely to create lucrative growth opportunities for the LiDAR drone market in the coming years.


Solid-state LiDAR Segment to Grow Significantly Owing to its Cost-effective Benefits

Based on segmentation by type, the solid-state segment is expected to exhibit significant growth on account of its laser technology and other excellent technical benefits in various applications. Besides this, it operates on silicon chip technology and is cost-efficient, as compared to the mechanical LiDARs.
