In Canada, the airborne type held above 15% of the LiDAR market revenue share in 2020 on account of growing demand for topographic sensors to penetrate vegetation and capture accurate ground data under the forest trees. Airplanes and helicopters are the most used mediums for acquiring LiDAR data over vast areas. The information generated through these devices supports activities including storm surge modelling, inundation, hydrodynamic modelling emergency response, shoreline mapping, and hydrographic surveying & coastal vulnerability modelling.

The cost-effectiveness of the solid-state LiDAR is driving the UK market growth

In the UK, solid-state LiDAR market is poised to register a growth rate of around 60% through 2027 led by to its inexpensive nature and high performance compared to traditional LiDAR solutions. The solid-state technology employs several transmitters in certain patterns and phases to create a directional broadcast. This technology allows the size, focus, and direction of the broadcast to be altered without any manual intervention. The lack of human intervention makes it more compact and resilient to vibrations.
