The LiDAR (light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology that uses pulse from a laser to collect measurements which can then be used to create 3D models and maps of objects and environments. Currently, the LiDAR that are being utilized are mechanical LiDAR that are not only costly but also are bulky, which significantly increases the cost of manufacturing autonomous vehicles. This is leading to the development of solid state LiDAR that are relatively small in size and cheaper than the traditional ones. Rising investment by key players in the solid state LiDAR technology is significantly boosting the solid state LiDAR market growth. For instance, in August 2016, Quanergy received $90 million to ramp up production of solid state LiDAR sensors. The demand for such LiDAR is majorly driven by the burgeoning need of manufacturers to produce autonomous vehicles at large scale.
Expanding drone production is another driving factor that is boosting the demand for solid state LiDAR sensors. According to knowledge Sourcing Intelligence Analysis, the market for commercial drone is poised to grow at a CAGR of 21.91% during 2017 to 2022. Hence, the solid state LiDAR market is poised to grow at an astounding rate during the forecast period on account of rising R&D on non-mechanical scanning LiDAR sensors such as optical phased array based and auto manufacturers aim to roll out autonomous vehicles in large scale by 2035.
