Solid-state automotive LiDAR sensors, however, are considered expensive for mass production. Their optical designs also have inherent optical inefficiencies, reducing the signal intensity and limiting the range and performance. Additionally, the performance optimization of this technology is associated with significant challenges. These product limitations may restrain industry expansion to some extent. Despite these challenges, the rise in investments to improve vehicle sensor technologies will support the growth of automotive LiDAR suppliers globally.

Automotive LiDAR Market Analysis

Automotive LiDAR market from the solid-state segment is slated to depict over 85% CAGR through 2032. Compared to traditional LiDAR technology, automotive solid-state LiDAR sensors are cost-effective and provide high-resolution data. This sensor also has an edge over radars in delivering an accurate picture of the surroundings of vehicles. Moreover, the increasing collaboration among automakers to lower the price of LiDAR systems will further accelerate sensor deployment.

Flash LiDARs based on solid-state designs can deliver performance, range, and all-weather reliability at lower costs and higher MTBF over mechanical scanning LiDARs. In addition, they can offer improved detection rates and accuracy as compared to cameras, radars, or other sensor types. This technology can be integrated into automated systems to facilitate electronic toll collection. The growing awareness of these benefits will augment the use of solid-state LiDAR sensing technology in vehicles.
