The automotive LiDAR market, which held a net worth of $430 million in 2020, is slated to surge to an estimated valuation of $3 billion by the end of 2031 according to a market study conducted by Fact.MR.

Technology has become a crucial aspect of all industry verticals, and this trend is highly prevalent in the automotive industry. Increasing demand for autonomous vehicles (AV) is a major trend that is driving automotive LiDAR (light detection and ranging) market growth.

Rising use of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), collision warning systems, lane-departure warning systems, etc., will also favor automotive LiDAR demand growth potential. However, the high costs of automotive LiDAR are anticipated to slow down market growth to some extent over the forecast period.

Automotive LiDAR companies are expanding their business scope by investing in the research and development of new technologies to create better product offerings.

•           In April 2022, Efficient Power Consumption, a semiconductor company, announced the launch of a new GaN IC that can be used in these systems for multiple applications, in which autonomous vehicles are also present.

“Increasing technological proliferation and rising demand for autonomous vehicles will propel demand for automotive LiDAR through 2031,” opined a Senior Research analyst.
