Global Automotive LiDAR Market Overview
Global automotive LiDAR market is projected to grow from $ 409.7 million in 2018 to $ 2.4 billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of over 35% during the forecast period, on account of increasing popularity of semi-autonomous vehicles and technological advancements. Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is an instrument used to determine the distance between the obstacle and itself, assisting in the advancements taking place in the autonomous automotive industry. LiDAR illuminates the target with the laser and measures the reflected pulses with sensor in order to spot the target in the path. Surging traction of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) is further escalating the demand for automotive LiDAR across the globe. Moreover, government regulations aimed at enhancing vehicle security are anticipated to positively impact the market.

Global Automotive LiDAR Market Segments
In terms of photodetector used in LiDAR, solid state LiDAR is the preferred choice, as it is lightweight, possesses smaller size and is cost-effective when compared with mechanical LiDAR. Automotive LiDAR is generally mounted on the roof, headlights & taillight, bumper & grill and others. Bumper & grill is the preferred choice of major players, as LiDAR provides better field of view without affecting the appearance of the vehicle. In terms of application, LiDAR is put to use for applications such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and others. ADAS segment is likely to be the largest segment of global automotive LiDAR market until 2024, as it enables vehicles to enable traffic adaptive cruise control and lane keeping. Moreover, automatic acceleration and braking functionality without any human intervention is further prompting the growth of the market.
