Automotive LiDAR Market Poised to Reach $8,611 Million by 2030

Automotive LiDAR Market

The global automotive LiDAR market was valued at USD 555 million in 2022 and expected to reach USD 8,611 million by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 40.9% over the forecast period (2022 – 2030). Factors such as increasing sales of high-end vehicles, along with the increase in the penetration of ADAS technology in vehicles will boost the demand for the automotive LiDAR sensors. Increase in developments related to autonomous vehicles, in conjunction with rising sales of electric vehicles equipped with LiDAR technology will create new opportunities for this market. Companies operating in the automotive LiDAR market are focusing on new product development. For instance, in January 2022, Innoviz Technologies Ltd. introduced its next-generation sensor “Innoviz360” to its product line. Innoviz360 is expected to generate revenues starting in 2023.

Solid-state LiDAR segment is estimated to have larger share during the forecast period.

The solid-state LiDAR is expected to larger segment in the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period. By technology, the solid-state LiDAR segment is expected to lead the market in terms of value as well as volume due to its advanced features such as real-time solid-state LiDAR data acquisition, long detection range, etc. Innoviz Technologies Ltd. (Israel), Quanergy Systems, Inc. (US), and LeddarTech Inc. (Canada) are some of the players in the solid-state LiDAR market. In addition, increasing inclination toward advanced technologies in the European region, in conjunction with the rising focus on autonomous vehicles, is anticipated to augment the projected revenue for the solid-state LiDAR segment of the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period. BMW (Germany) offers solid-state LiDAR technology in its BMW 7 Series model. Similarly, Toyota’s Mirai model uses solid-state LiDAR technology.

3D segment is expected to account for larger share in the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period

The 3D automotive LiDAR market is projected to be the larger during the forecast period. 3D LiDAR, which is light in weight, can scan an area range of 100 to 150 meters, depending upon the device, with an FoV of 360 degrees horizontally and 360 degrees vertically. OEMs and developers depend more on 3D LiDAR for a better view and accuracy, resulting in improved output. Considering the declining price trend of 3D LiDAR, OEMs and developers will prefer to deploy 3D LiDAR instead of 2D LiDAR, which will also result in a more accurate performance. An increased inclination toward advanced technologies in the automotive sector, in conjunction with the rising focus on L2+, L3, L4 & L5 autonomy, is expected to boost the revenue growth of the 3D segment of the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period. Audi A8 and Honda Legend are the models offered by Audi (Germany) and Honda (Japan), respectively, which use 3D LiDAR.

“Europe is expected to have noticeable share in the automotive LiDAR market by 2030.”

Europe is expected to have significant growth in the automotive LiDAR market during the forecast period. Stringent emission regulations, which led to an increase in sales of electric vehicles, paired with growing demand for premium vehicles are expected to drive the demand for automotive LiDAR in Europe. Additionally, the presence of OEMs such as Volkswagen (Germany), Daimler (Germany), Renault (France), and AB Volvo (Sweden) offers growth opportunities for automotive LiDAR in the region. European automotive enterprises also dominate the global automotive landscape, accounting for almost 50% of the R&D spending, led by BMW, Continental, and Daimler. All these parameters are expected to augment revenues for the automotive LiDAR market in the European region during the forecast period.
