Global Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market to Reach US$ 6.2 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Demand for 3D Laser Scanning

March 13, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market Report by Solution (Scanning Systems, Scanning Services), Technology (Phase-Shift, Pulse-Based, Optical Triangulation), Laser Type (Diode, Fiber, Solid-State), Application (Building Information Modeling, Topographical Survey, Forestry and Agricultural Survey, Mining Survey, Construction Survey, Research and Engineering, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global terrestrial laser scanning market reached a value of US$ 3.6 Billion in 2023. Terrestrial laser scanning, also known as TLS or LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), is a remote sensing technology that uses laser beams to map the environment. In terrestrial laser scanning, a laser scanner is mounted on a tripod or vehicle and is used to measure the distance from the scanner to objects in the environment. The laser scanner emits a laser pulse and measures the time it takes for the pulse to bounce back from an object, providing a highly accurate measurement of the distance between the scanner and the object. This data is then used to construct a 3D model of the environment, including the shape, size, and location of objects in the environment. It is widely used in various fields, including surveying, architecture, engineering, archaeology, environmental science, and geology. It provides high-resolution and accurate data, which can be used for a wide range of applications, including topographical surveys, architectural modeling, disaster response, and more. Additionally, the technology is non-invasive and can be used in areas that are difficult to access or dangerous for human inspection.

Global Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for high-precision data in various industries, such as construction, surveying, and engineering. In line with this, the rising demand for 3D imaging and mapping technologies is significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the growing demand for accurate and high-resolution data and the escalating use of laser scanning technology in the construction and engineering industries are positively influencing the market. Apart from this, the increasing popularity of building information modeling (BIM) technology is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the advancements in technology have made terrestrial laser scanning more accessible and affordable, further driving the growth of the market. Besides, the rapid adoption of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with laser scanning technology is also propelling the market. Additionally, the introduction of improved and user-friendly terrestrial laser scanning systems is expected to bolster the market. Some of the other factors driving the market include the rising demand for 3D laser scanners in infrastructure, extensive research and development activities, escalating usage of LiDAR in building information modeling applications, and the rapid product adoption in global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 6.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% during 2024-2032.
