LiDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging. The LiDAR instrument is mounted on helicopters, drones and others. The

LiDAR mounted on aircraft emits rapid pulses of laser light at a ground surface. LiDAR emits up to 150,000 pulses per

second. A sensor on the instrument measures the time taken for each pulse to be received back from the ground surface.

The airborne LiDAR systems emerged commercially in the mid-1990s, and provide explicit 3D laser profiling and scanning in

contrast to the 2D planimetric remote sensing data. The 3D coordinates of (x, y, z) axis, describe the 3D topographic profile

of the earth’s surface, vegetation area coverage, and human-made objects. The airborne LiDAR technique has been

efficiently used for generating Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Digital Terrain Model (DTM), and Digital Surface Model (DSM).

LiDAR is viewed as a revolutionary technology for airborne mapping, as it cost-effectively delivers highly precise terrain

data. Airborne LiDAR technology has now become a noble solution for geospatial data acquisition. The geospatial data

development is the ability of airborne LiDAR to measure 3D structures, using active sensors technology system. The data

acquired through airborne LiDAR is reliable and precise. As LiDAR prepares an overall 3D picture of the ground surface,

these pictures are useful in different domains, such as the development of national guidelines and standards, oil & gas,

aerospace & defense, mining industry, and transportation & logistics.

The growing demand for 3D imagery in various application areas, such as military & defense, civil engineering, geographical

surveys, and corridor mapping, is expected to drive the LiDAR market in the upcoming years considerably. Textured 3D

imagery is applied in various applications, such as 3D mapping, city planning, and photorealistic flyers.

Airborne LiDAR Market Segmentation

Airborne LiDAR market is expected to grow over the forecast period, owing to the automation in LiDAR systems, leading to

the reduction in human efforts and improvement in efficiency.

On the basis of platform, the airborne LiDAR market has been segmented into rotary wing, fixed wing, and unmanned aerial

vehicles. The substantial growth in general aviation, globally, and increasing inclination for cost-effective air travel are the

key factors estimated to witness the growth of the airborne LiDAR market during the forecast period.

The airborne LiDAR market has been segmented on the basis of type into topographic LiDAR and bathymetric LiDAR (bathy

LiDAR). The most common used airborne LiDAR system is the topographic airborne LiDAR. It is operated, on the time-offlight

principle, by sending a high-intensity laser pulse in a narrow beam towards an object and measuring the time taken by

the pulse to be reflected off the target and returned to the sender. The growth of the topographic LiDAR segment can be

attributed to the rise in demand for enhanced situational awareness and survey activities, such as seismology, cartography,

and meteorology.

There is a growing trend in the manner information collected by LiDAR systems is becoming available to a much larger user

community through open sources and cloud services. Due to the easy access of information through open sources, there is

a whole new set of challenges for the present companies, regarding the safeguarding of commercial feasibility of mapping


North America is expected to account for the largest share of the airborne LiDAR market. The major leading countries in this

region for airborne LiDAR market are the U.S. and Canada. The collective use of LiDAR systems in mapping and surveying

applications, along with a rising base of LiDAR service providers are driving the growth of the airborne LiDAR market in the

U.S. The major application areas of LiDAR sensors in the U.S. include industrial survey, military mapping, forest

management, and oceanographic surveys. In Canada, airborne LiDAR sensors are majorly used in infrastructural

improvement purposes.
