Global LiDAR Drone Market is valued approximately at USD 84.5 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 24.5 % over the forecast period 2019-2026. LiDAR implies Light Detection and Ranging Techniques, used in surveying and graphing geographical information. The LiDAR measures distance to a target with laser light and measuring the reflected light with a sensor, differences in laser return times and wavelengths, that is used to make digital 3D representation of the target. Drones that contains this light detection ranging technology is known as LiDAR Drones, that provides data of high accuracy and helps in efficient data acquisition. The rising demand for LiDAR Drones for corridor mapping and precision agriculture applications has driven the growth of global LiDAR Drone market. Moreover, growing advancements in Drones and adoption of LiDAR Drone in various applications like Archeology, Construction, and various other sector will boost the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to Department of Science and Technology, the national mapping agency (NMA) of India announced the use of drones for Large Scale Mapping (LSM) for mapping of the Village Gaothan (Aabadi) areas in the State of Maharashtra covering more than 40,000 villages in 2019. Further, initiatives undertaken by governments of different countries to encourage use of LiDAR Drones for large-scale surveys and emergence of 4D LiDAR sensors is anticipated to create opportunities for the growth of global LiDAR Drone market during the forecast period. However, easy availability of low-cost and lightweight photogrammetry systems are barriers and thus inhibiting the growth of LiDAR Drone market.
