The airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system market size will grow at a notable rate on the back of rising penetration of exploration, corridor mapping and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems. Surging investments in driverless cars and heightened awareness about LiDAR systems will encourage stakeholders to expand their geographical presence.

Fortune Business Insights™ has delved into these inputs in an upcoming research report, titled, “Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) System Market, 2022-2029.”

COVID-19 Impact-

Supply Chain Disruptions Challenge Growth Prospect

The exploration activities dipped during the COVID-19 pandemic as organizations and governments had to postpone their research projects. The slowdown in the oil & gas sector could have a telling impact on the global outlook. Furthermore, the dip in air traffic had an indirect influence on the business outlook as LiDAR systems are highly sought-after to monitor the passengers’ flow in real-time. Given that manufacturers use it to monitor supply chains, disruptions became pronounced. Meanwhile, the rising adoption of LiDAR in construction applications could add fillip to the industry growth.
