Automotive LiDAR Market is Amped up and on the Rise

The global automotive LiDAR market growth is expanding at a CAGR  of 24.97% over the forecast period and is predicted to reach around USD 7.43 billion by 2032 from 0.83 USD 2022.

Automotive LiDAR Market Size 2023 to 2032


Automotive Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a surveying system that employs pulsed laser light to ascertain the distance between two vehicles. The measurement of this distance is accomplished by illuminating the target vehicle or object and then capturing the reflected pulse using a sensor. The application of LiDAR in automobiles aids in regulating vehicle speed and braking in response to sudden changes in traffic conditions. Before the advent of LiDAR, radar and sonar were utilized for range detection in advanced vehicles. The advantages offered by LiDAR, including real-time data acquisition and enhanced precision, have driven its market growth ahead of radars and sonar.

Automotive LiDAR Market Growth

A significant driving force behind the automotive LiDAR market is the growing awareness among vehicle users about safety, coupled with safety regulations mandated by global regulatory bodies. Additionally, the increasing adoption of autonomous and electric vehicles is expected to lead to substantial growth in the utilization of advanced vehicle safety components, such as automotive LiDAR. The heightened focus from governments on vehicles equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in recent years, due to safety concerns, is anticipated to fuel the demand for automotive LiDAR in the forecast period. Automotive LiDAR has proven to be a pivotal technology for autonomous vehicles, owing to its high precision and accurate real-time detection capabilities using emitted laser beams.

However, the high cost of the technology presents a hindrance to market growth. Some manufacturers are actively working on reducing the cost of automotive LiDAR sensors by minimizing the number of laser emitters in the solution. Despite these efforts, the cost of automotive LiDAR remains relatively high, thereby limiting its widespread adoption by numerous manufacturers.
