Automotive Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a survey system that uses pulsed laser lights to determine the distance between two vehicles. The distance is calculated by illuminating the target vehicle or object and using a sensor to measure the reflected pulse. In an automobile application, the LiDAR solution assists in the control of the vehicle's speed and braking system in response to sudden changes in traffic conditions. Radars and sonar were used for range detection in advanced vehicles prior to LiDAR. The benefits offered by LiDAR, such as the determination of real-time data and higher accuracy, have propelled its market growth over radar and sonar.
Rising safety awareness among vehicle users along with safety standards provided by regulatory bodies is a key driver of the automotive LiDAR market. In addition, the increasing adoption of autonomous and electric vehicles is expected to represent a stupendous growth in the application of advanced vehicle safety components such as the automotive LiDAR. Increasing focus on vehicles incorporated by ADAS and government initiatives over the last few years due to safety concerns is likely to boost demand for automotive LiDAR during the forecast period.
Covid19, drastically affects the world supply chain and industrial sector growth. At the initial stages of the pandemic, the world experienced, ‘supply shocks’. China who plays a major role in the world’s supply chain was severely affected. There were disruptions to the availability of goods supplied from China. Supply of both finished and unfinished goods reduced. Day by day as the situation worsened, quarantines, social distance practices were imposed and nations begun instituting lockdowns. Following this, the supply chains experienced demand shocks. The shutdown of economic activities affected all the sectors. The automotive industry’s sluggish growth, in turn, affected the automotive LiDAR market.
