Global Lidar Drones Market – By Type, End-User Industry, and Geography (2016-2021) – Research and Markets

Lidar Drones Market – By Type, End-User Industry, and Geography (2016 –
report has been added to Research and Markets’

The global LIDAR drones market was valued at USD 15.56 million in 2015
and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 36.95% to reach USD 74.96 million,
by 2020.

Lidar, also called as light detection and ranging, is used as a graphing
or surveying technology that deals with distance, by striking the target
with a laser light. Lidar is commonly used as a technology to get
high-resolution maps, with applications like atmospheric physics,
geomorphology, geomatics, forestry, geography, geology, archaeology, and
seismology. Lidar is capable of 3D scanning with the airborne capability
called as LIDAR drones.

Drones are most useful, especially in the field of Geographic
Information System (GIS), where it benefits establishments and nearly
every industry. Drone technology enhances the GIS technology as it is
easy-to-deploy for mapping and can move into even remote sites.
Recently, a team of archaeological scientists had mapped the Angkor Wat
temple area in Indonesia, and for that mapping, they used Lidar, due to
its sophisticated and cost-effective remote sensing technology,
currently available in the market. The Lidar device, which is mounted on
helicopters and drones, fires up to a million laser rays every five
seconds through the forest canopy, to record even minute differences in
ground surface topography. The archaeologists found undocumented
highways, temples and even water ways, which were otherwise hidden. This
has been possible only through the Lidar technology.

Lidar drones have many applications, which can help public and private
services (aerospace, defense, and intelligence, public utilities,
banking, financial services, insurance, telecommunication, healthcare,
retail, manufacturing and others).
