PORTLAND, Oregon and PUNE, India, November 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "U.S. Airborne LiDAR Market by Component, Application and End User - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014-2022," the U.S. airborne LiDAR market is expected to garner $135 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 12.1% from 2016 to 2022. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140911/647229 ) Summary of the U.S. Airborne LiDAR Market Report can be accessed on the website at:https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/US-airborne-lidar-market U.S. represents more than 80% share of the overall aerial LiDAR system market in North America. Advancements in laser technology and aerial vehicles have reduced the cost of airborne LiDAR systems. Furthermore, increase in airborne LiDAR applications in various industries, apart from conventional military applications, has accelerated the demand for airborne LiDAR in U.S. Moreover, reduction in price of drones, expansion of applications in defense & civil engineering, and rise in demand for 3D imaging are projected to supplement the market growth. Fueled by the high demand for accurate and high-resolution 3D images of the tracked object, these aerial vehicles are most widely used in defense & aerospace, civil engineering, forestry & agriculture, transportation & logistics among other domains. By components, the market is segmented into lasers, inertial navigation systems, cameras, GPS/GNSS receivers, and micro-electromechanical systems. Among these, lasers generated the maximum revenue in the year 2014. However, GPS/GNSS receiver is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The ability to operate in difficult environments highlights the need of these components in efficient LiDAR devices. Applications wise, corridor mapping accounted for the maximum revenue share in 2015. However, other types of applications, which include pollution modeling, coastline management, and meteorology, are expected to register highest CAGR of 13.3% during the forecast period. This growth is observed due to the improved capabilities of LiDAR systems to record and process the data points in a shorter time for pollution modelling, coastline management, and metrology applications in U.S.
