Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems enable easier examination, detection, and mapping of objects in comparison to the conventional techniques. These systems are increasingly employed over conventional survey methods as they provide accurate data and 3D images at a faster rate. LiDAR systems have replaced conventional surveying methods and statistical analysis due to the in-depth analysis requirement in different application areas. The widespread awareness about the advantages of LiDAR in different industry verticals is a major factor that drives the Asia-Pacific LiDAR market. Countries, such as China, Japan and South Korea amongst others, are using LiDAR technology in civil engineering and forestry applications. Furthermore, Government initiatives have a positive impact on the adoption of the LiDAR technology in different application areas. This further supplements the growth and creates opportunities for the players to enhance their market reach.
Strategies such as product launch, acquisitions, joint ventures, and partnerships are expected to help the market players set a common technology platform and share the technological requirements, which in turn, would enhance their product portfolio and increase their market share across Asia-Pacific. Cost cutting in operations is expected to assist the manufacturers to invest into advertisement and increase awareness about LiDAR systems across diverse industry verticals. In addition, increased use of LiDAR systems across various industries supported by favorable government initiatives, is expected to fuel the growth of the Asia-Pacific LiDAR market. For instance, in February 2015, the Indian road ministry announced the mandatory use of LiDAR system to conduct a feasibility check for all the highway projects in India.
