The LiDAR Market is expected to reach $20.03 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 28.4% from 2022 to 2029. The growth of this market is driven by the increasing adoption of LiDAR systems for developing UAVs, the growing use of LiDAR technology in autonomous vehicles, the emergence of 4D LiDAR, and increasing government investments in LiDAR technology.
However, the safety risks associated with UAVs and autonomous vehicles restrain the growth of this market. Increasing OEM investments in LiDAR start-ups offer market growth opportunities. However, the high cost of installing LiDAR systems is a challenge for market growth.
