Cumulative Impact of COVID-19:

The coronavirus pandemic had a major impact on the global economy. As businesses around the world shut down or reduced operations to prevent the spread of infection, demand for goods and services decreased significantly. The pandemic resulted in a slowdown in production and investments across many industries, including automotive and aerospace, that rely on LiDAR technology. As these two sectors were prominently affected by the pandemic, demand for LiDAR products dropped significantly.

Cumulative Impact of Russia-Ukraine Conflict:

In addition to COVID-19, another factor that has impacted the LiDAR market is the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The conflict between these two countries has disrupted supply chains across Europe, leading to delays in the production of goods and services in some countries. Delays in the business operations have decreased demand for products such as LiDAR systems, resulting in lower sales figures for companies operating within this sector.

Cumulative Impact of High Inflation:

High inflation rates have also affected the LiDAR market this year. Inflation rates worldwide have increased steadily since 2019 due to rising costs associated with raw materials used in production processes such as metal fabrication or 3d printing. Increased costs have led to higher prices for products such as sensors utilized by manufacturers of autonomous vehicles or drones, which rely heavily on accurate data from sensors to function properly, further creating a need for reliable yet cost-effective solutions. However, these higher prices have put pressure on the budgets of many buyers causing them to reduce spending or opt out of buying new products altogether, which could lead to further declines in sales figures if consumer confidence does not improve soon.
