“The price drop in LiDAR in the past three years has been massive,” asserts Pierrick Boulay, Technology & Market Analyst, Solid-state Lighting at Yole Développement (Yole). “Indeed, it is the result of strategies by different companies and not due to the result of mass-production. Volumes have not evolved significantly in these three years and mass adoption of LiDAR still has to happen. However, this price drop of LiDAR has a significant impact on market forecast. At Yole, we expect that the unit price of LiDAR will continue to decline, and large volumes will be needed in order to maintain the market.”

This year again, Yole and its partner System Plus Consulting investigate in depth the LiDAR industry and its disruptive technologies. The two companies combine their market and technical expertise to convey their vision.
