Automotive LiDAR Sensors Market Trends




  • The growing demand for autonomous vehicles and electric automobiles is favorably boosting market growth




Growing demand for autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles is a major element driving the market CAGR for the automotive Lidar sector. Rising demand for low-emission transportation, rising fuel prices, and government initiatives or directives towards zero-emission or battery-powered autos through subsidies and tax exemptions can all be considered critical in boosting market demand.


According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electric two- and three-wheeler sales might reach 50 million by 2030, up from 25 million in 2020, accounting for more than half of total sales. Valeo unveiled their plans for the third generation scanning LiDAR in May 2022, with a commercial launch in 2024. As part of its transition to supporting driverless vehicles, this development will strive to improve performance, resolution, and frame rate. In the long run, these characteristics will serve to increase market demand for automotive lidar.


Furthermore, Government restrictions or requirements aimed at enhancing vehicle safety standards can also be viewed as a major driver of the automotive lidar industry's growth. The alarming increase in the number of deaths caused by road accidents has shifted the focus of government bodies or authorities to improving vehicle safety standards.


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic fatalities in the United States increased to 42,915 in 2021, following a significant increase in 2020, prompting more calls for faster action on new safety technologies such as vehicle sensors, wireless connections to traffic command centres, and other vehicles and roadside infrastructure.


Automotive LiDAR Sensors Market Segment Insights:
