LiDAR is a machine that uses a laser to detect the position and motion of an object. The machine emits light which is reflected from the three-dimensional object’s surface. The system then generates details about the object. LiDAR consists of systems to map and display results. The technology is used in various industries such as automotive, mining, defense, construction, power generation, and meteorology.

Increasing usage of LiDAR in the mining applications is preliminarily fueling the market growth. LiDAR is used to assist mine operators with mine planning and slope stability assessment. In 2017, top 40 global companies in the mining industry generated revenue of about USD 600 billion as compared to USD 490 billion in 2016. Increasing investment in the mining industry is expected to propel the LiDAR market. In 2017, Russia and China raised about USD 1 billion to invest in Russia’s mining industry. Government initiatives in India will further lead to the growth of the market. In 2018, the government of India allowed 100% Foreign Direct Investment in coal mining. Thus, it is anticipated that the mining industry will contribute significantly to the growth of LiDAR market.

The usage of LiDAR in power generation has been noteworthy. The rising investments in this sector are expected to fuel the growth of the LiDAR market. The global investments in clean energy technology were about USD 333 billion in 2017 as compared to USD 324 billion in 2016. In 2017, China was the leading investor with USD 132 billion followed by the U.S. with USD 57 billion. This number is estimated to rise during the forecast period. Thus, the growth of the LiDAR market in the power generation sector is evident.
