Article in EETimes on the future of automotive sensing:

Yole forecasts that revenue generated by lidars will reach $1.6 billion in 2022 and will balloon to $31.5 billion by 2032.

What’s interesting is who is really innovating in this space, and developing IP. Whilst early work was pioneered by GM, and then though known players like Bosch and Valeo, recent innovation is driven by those in the electronics, and companies pushing autonomous vehicles or solely focusing on Lidar.
