Aerial LiDAR in Coastal Application Leading the Global Market
The global LiDAR market is segmented based on technology, application, and regions. By technology, the global LiDAR market is divided into two types, namely aerial and terrestrial. In 2013, aerial LiDAR mapping grabbed a larger share of the global LiDAR market. By application, the global LiDAR market was led by coastal LiDAR, which includes applications such as coastal habitat mapping and ocean floor mapping. Some other LiDAR applications that contributed to the growth of the global market include forestry, infrastructure, transmission lines, transportation, defense, and aerospace.

By geography, the global LiDAR market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. North America dominated the global LiDAR market in 2013 thanks to high acceptance of 3D imagery and 3D mapping technologies, especially in the U.S. Europe emerged as the second largest regional market for LiDAR technologies with a share only slightly lower than that of North America. A large number of market players producing as well as adopting 3D imagery technology are based in Europe....
