The solid-state LiDAR market is projected to grow significantly over the projected time period. This technology is in the development phase and is expected to be commercialized by 2020. However, the technology is gaining a lot of traction from the automakers due to its cost-effective nature and compact size. Its entire assembly is built on a silicon chip. Hence, there are no moving components present, making the system more resilient to vibrations. This allows the manufacturers to produce smaller parts at a lower price.  

The North America is dominating the automotive LiDAR market with a market share of over 70% in 2017. This growth can be attributed to favorable government policies. For instance, in 2016, the Canadian government introduced Ontario Regulation 306/15 that permitted the testing of self-driving vehicles. In addition, the automotive companies in the region have invested heavily in the development of the automotive LiDAR technology.

The Asia Pacific automotive LiDAR market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 60% during the projected timeline. The presence of the major automotive LiDAR technology providers such as Robosense and Benewake in the region has fostered the growth of the market. These companies are investing heavily in the R&D activities to accelerate innovations in the automotive LiDAR technology. For instance, in 2018, RoboSense has partnered with Alibaba to develop solid-state LiDAR technology for autonomous vehicles.

The prominent players operating in the automotive LiDAR industry are Leddertech, Continental, Luminar Technologies, Aptiv, Magna, Blackmore Sensors & Analytics, Oryx Vision, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, BMW, Nissan, Trilumia, Uber, ZF, Innoviz Technologies, Velodyne, Quanergy, and Volvo. The major companies in the automotive LiDAR market are forming alliances with other expert companies in the market to develop new product offerings and conduct strategic acquisitions, to gain a competitive advantage over its competitors. For instance, in 2018, Innoviz Technologies, an Israeli LiDAR startup partnered with Magna, a Canadian automotive supplier to provide BMW with solid-state LiDAR components for its self-driving vehicles. Similarly, in 2017, General Motors (GM) acquired Strobe, a startup specializing in automotive LiDAR technology for autonomous vehicles. This acquisition was aimed at incorporating Strobe’s LiDAR technology into Cruise Control, a subsidiary of GM, which develops the self-driving technology.
