In 2018, North America earned USD 44.95 million and emerged dominant with the largest UAV LiDAR market share. This is attributable to the high presence of UAV, as well as many players. Moreover, the presence of many consumers who study the subject and its high implementation in this region would aid to the expansion of the regional market. In 2019, Europe overpowered North America and emerged dominant on account of the increasing demand for 3D image mapping for applications, coupled with the presence of multiple players such as Yellow Scan, Delairl, Leica, and others. Asia Pacific is expected to rise steadily in the forecast period on account of the increasing number of companies manufacturing drones for commercial purposes in India and China.

The global LiDAR market size is anticipated to showcase significant growth in the coming years on account of the increasing adoption of advanced sensor technologies into drone LiDAR systems for operational efficiency and reduced human labour requirement. Light detection and ranging technology or LiDAR is a remote sensing technology that utilizes rapid laser pulses for mapping out any surface of the earth.

Various businesses adopt this technology for creating elevated models and high-resolution digital surfaces. Currently, the whole world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by staying at homes and maintaining social distancing. This has not only affected the lives of many but also affected various national and international trade relations and transactions worldwide. Most of the markets are struggling to generate revenue, whereas the others are at a temporary halt. However, we hope to soon come out of this situation by complying with the government.
