Global Automotive LiDAR Market: Focus on Application Type, Technology Type, Technology Level, Country Analysis, Industry Insights, Patent Landscape, Regulation Landscape, and Competitive Landscape- Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2028
With the advent of ADAS and autonomous vehicles, there is need for a system which can assist the driver in the driving process and make it easier for the driver to travel without worrying about the safety and control issues while driving. However, ADAS and driverless vehicles work on the input provided by automated systems, therefore, necessitating the need for more accurate and dense data provided to the system. Cameras/RADARs/ultrasonic sensors are unable to meet these sensing requirements due to various operational limitations of these sensors, which in effect, raises the need for the usage of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDARs) for a higher level of automation.
The global automotive LiDAR market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period 2018-2028. The high growth rate in the volume of LiDARs is predicted due to rising customer demand, extensive usage of LiDARs in high-level automated vehicles, tremendous development in the Research & Development (R&D) for automotive LiDAR to enhance the features of the LIDAR system, and an anticipated decline in manufacturing prices of LiDARs after the commencement of mass production.
The demand for automotive LiDAR varies according to various geographical regions. The automotive LiDAR market holds a prominent share in various countries of North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, and Rest-of-the-World (RoW). Geographically, U.S. led the global automotive LiDAR market in 2017 in terms of value as the U.S. market had a major share in the global automotive LiDAR market for the year 2017. The presence of major LiDAR manufacturers and automakers such as Ford Motors Company, General Motors, Velodyne LiDAR, Inc., and Quanergy Systems, among others, as well as advancements in the number of highly automated vehicles accounts for the high growth rate and major share of the U.S. in the automotive LiDAR market. Also, the growing demand of automotive LiDAR from the U.S. provides immense opportunities to players in the supply chain. For instance, it is expected that LiDAR component suppliers will play a significant role by collaborating with LiDAR manufacturers, in reducing the time required to mass produce LiDAR systems for the automotive market. Additionally, APAC region is expected to witness one of the highest growth rates during the forecast period (2018-2028) owing to various factors such as government implementation towards upgradation of existing vehicles to ADAS and autonomous vehicles which uses LiDAR systems, high demand due to advancement in technology, and greater adaptation of autonomous vehicles and safety sensors such as LiDARs in these vehicles due to decreased cost.
