Terrestrial LiDAR, also known as topographic LiDAR, is a type of LiDAR, which obtains the XYZ coordinates of multiple places on land by sending laser pulses toward these points and calculating the distance between the instrument and the target. LiDAR stands for light detection and ranging; however, it can also refer to laser imaging detection and ranging.

 It is a remote sensing technique in which light in the form of a laser is utilized to measure varying distances to the Earth. As it combines 3D scanning and laser scanning, it is also known as 3D laser scanning. LiDAR systems gather data by firing thousands of light pulses per second and measuring the time it takes for the pulse to reach the LiDAR sensor. As a result, geometric structures may be accurately analyzed and described in 3D. 

These are very advantageous qualities, and laser is thus increasingly being employed as the primary component of distance measurement devices capable of creating 3D models of objects of various sizes and shapes. Terrestrial LiDAR is used on the Earth's surface and can be both mobile and fixed. For monitoring, traditional topography, forensics, and cultural heritage recording, stationary terrestrial scanning is a popular survey method. Mobile and UAV LiDAR work on the Earth's surface and in the surrounding environment in both mobile and airborne modes. All these factors are assisting the growth of terrestrial liDAR market share globally.

The global terrestrial LiDAR market is segmented on the basis of type, solution, application and region. Based on type, the market is divided into phase-shift, pulse-based, and mobile scanner. On the basis of solution, the market is divided into TLS system and TLS services. On the basis of TLS system the market is further divided into hardware, interface devices, laser scanners, inertial measurement systems, wireless LAN antenna, GPS/positioning systems, digital cameras, and others. On the basis of TLS services the market is further divided into oil & gas, mining, infrastructure, forestry & agriculture, and transportation & logistics. In terms of application, the market is categorized into building information modelling (BIM), surveying, research & development, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the growth of several sectors, including automobiles, oil and gas, and others. The business community is concerned about cash shortages, supply chain disruptions, and staffing concerns. The electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industries have been harmed by disruptions in raw material supply, temporary shutdown of manufacturing units, inadequate finance, and weak consumer demand. It has directly impacted production and demand for terrestrial LiDAR causing supply chain and market disruption. All these factors are hampering the growth of terrestrial liDAR market size globally.

Top Impacting Factors

The growing need for 3D imaging technology combined with the increasing number of novel applications requiring LiDAR technology is propelling the terrestrial liDAR market growth forward. Other variables, such as the performance of LiDAR systems being vulnerable to environmental features, are also supporting the expansion of the terrestrial liDAR industry. 3D laser scanning technology can document and record a wide range of items, structures, buildings, and topographies from a small beautifully detailed sculpture to a vast geo-referenced landscape. Commercially, laser scanning has proven to be particularly effective in the documentation of constructions such as oil and chemical refineries, motorways, bridges, and other complicated structures, delivering exact "as-built" measured drawings in a fraction of the time and cost of older approaches. However, the expensive cost of the equipment and lack of public awareness about the usage of this technology are considered to be a restraining factor for the terrestrial LiDAR market opportunity. 

Surge in Usage in Agriculture Sector and Tunnels 

Terrestrial LiDARs have found widespread application in agriculture, primarily in the creation of a topographical map of the fields that displays the slopes and sun exposure of the farm land. This technique assists farmers in achieving the best crop output by suggesting crucial regions for the application of costly fertilizers. Furthermore, researchers are developing terrestrial LiDARs for automated indoor modelling, which will let them model the interiors of buildings. 

Terrestrial laser scanners are accurate enough to acquire very comprehensive information on agricultural crops, are deemed unsuitable for operational use. Crop parameters will be retrieved from agricultural field point clouds and used in precision farming, just as they are in forestry. Advancements in this technique's speed, precision, software algorithms, and price reduction have offered a great potential for large-scale applications in very demanding engineering contexts such as tunnels, bridges, and heritage structures. 

Geotechnical information on encountered rock conditions and thorough installed support information are necessary to assure safety, long-term stability, and quality control in modern tunnelling operations. Acquiring data in an operational tunnel setting is difficult due to limited space and time. Therefore, terrestrial LiDARs are being used in tunneling, which shows great potential for the market to grow.
