The terrestrial laser scanning system is generally known as terrestrial LIDAR (light detection and ranging)/ topographic LIDAR, this works on the principle which is similar to electronic distance measuring instruments. Lasers emit electromagnetic radiation, from a transmitter and capture the reflected light by a receiver, which is coherent and monochromatic. The emitted beams are highly directional, contain a lot of energy. It rapidly acquires accurate, dense 3D data acquisition of object surfaces by laser range finding using the time of travel of the emitted beam. This is a cost-effective and very fast way to produce 3D Models. These systems are widely used in surveys to collect complex geometric data from buildings, land, and other objects. The utilization of laser scanning systems has risen dramatically in recent years for rapid mapping and the compilation of asset inventories. Thus growing demand for these systems is expected to drive the global terrestrial laser scanning market over the forecast period.

Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market Dynamics

Increasing demand for 3D laser scanners in the infrastructure industry, survey, and research & development are the major factors expected to drive the global terrestrial laser scanners market. It is owing to the increasing adoption of LiDAR in Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications, increasing adoption of software as a solution (SaaS), and advancements in networking for GNSS applications for land survey equipment. Further, the rise in the global capital expenditure from the infrastructure industry along with increasing global Gross Domestic Product (GDP), rising disposable income especially in Asian countries, and rising standard of living are driving the growth of the terrestrial laser scanning market.

However, factors like high investment and maintenance costs of terrestrial laser scanning, along with limitations of LIDAR in harsh weather conditions are hampering the global terrestrial laser scanning market.

Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market Segmentation Analysis

Based on product the global terrestrial laser scanning market is broadly segmented as phase shift, mobile scanner, pulse-based scanner, and optical triangulation. Among all these phase shift scanners accounted for major market share and is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. It is owing to the demand for BIM, and 3D modeling of assets is witnessing growth in the developed countries which, in turn, has generated the need for efficient and faster equipment. Using phase shift scanners, the distance is measured by analyzing the shift in the wavelength of the return beam. These are also capable of modulating the power of the laser beam. Therefore, they offer better performance compared to other scanners.

Based on application, the global terrestrial laser scanning market is broadly segmented into Building Information Modelling (BIM), surveying, photogrammetry, and remote sensing, volume estimation, and others. Among all these building information modelings accounted for major market share in 2018 and are projected to grow at a high pace over the forecast period. Building information modeling is used in building information modeling for creating complex 3D models along with deformation projects, assets management projects, infrastructure up-gradation projects, and others. Thus, growth in the demand for BIM is expected to propel the global terrestrial laser scanning market.

Terrestrial Laser Scanning Market Geographical Share

The global terrestrial laser scanning market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific region accounted for a major market share and is projected to grow at a high CAGR of YY% over the forecast period. It is owing to the increasing number of terrestrial laser scanning technologies being used by prominent surveying companies for land surveys along with increasing archeological surveys. Also, the capital expenditure of the infrastructure industry is rising across the Asia Pacific region, due to the increasing new infrastructural projects, growing Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and increasing disposable income in this region. According to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, in 2019, India requires an infrastructural investment of $ 777.73 billion by 2022 to have sustainable development in the country.
