Global Lidar Drone Market to Grow at a CAGR of 24.1% During 2022-2027, Driven by the Rapid Deployment of Lidar Drones in Military and Defence Applications

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Lidar Drone Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global LiDAR drone industry attained a value of about USD 165.3 million in 2021. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach nearly USD 603.7 million by 2027.

North America is expected to hold a significant share in the global market for lidar drones. This can be attributed to the proliferation of advanced technology in the region due to the strong market penetration of leading players and the ready availability of smart technology. In addition to this, as a result of robust investments in the military and defence of the United States, lidar drone technology is being rapidly employed for surveillance and navigation purposes, thereby pushing the growth of the market. Furthermore, ease in government regulations allowing the usage of drones for commercial purposes is also anticipated to positively influence the growth of the regional market in the coming years. Hence, due to the factors mentioned above, the United States market for lidar drones is witnessing innovations and developments for various industrial uses, thereby aiding the market's growth.

Velodyne Lidar (NASDAQ: VLDR), a leading player in the global market for lidar drones, recently announced a multi-year agreement to provide its lidar sensors to Topodrone in September 2021. Topodrone is a Switzerland-based company developing affordable, high-precision solutions for aerial surveys. Velodyne’s laser sensors enable high-precision mapping and 3D modelling to environments including farms, forests, and infrastructure, among others. Such developments by leading market players provide momentum to lidar drones' overall market growth.
