The North America LiDAR market share surpassed USD 900 million in 2021 impelled by rising demand for self-driving cars in the region. LiDAR technology offers long-range operability and a higher resolution which has enabled automotive manufacturers to integrate this system into their vehicles. For instance, in July 2022, Mercedes-Benz announced the introduction of Driver Pilot, the carmaker’s Level 3 autonomous driving technology, in US-bound cars. This system uses LiDAR, cameras, and a 4-GPS antenna setup to extract data from the satellites.
