    What is avalanche photodiode?

    Avalanche photodiode (APD) is a sensitive semiconductor device that exploits the photoelectric effect to convert light into electricity. These photodiodes are primarily used to measure the lower level light and are used in a wide range of applications that require high sensitivity such as long-distance & optical-distance optical communications.

    Key Players

    Key players operating in the Avalanche Photodiode (APD) market are-

    • First Sensor AG (Germany)
    • Hamamatsu (Japan)
    • Kyosemi Corporation (Japan)
    • Luna (US)
    • Excelitas (Canada)
    • Osi optoelectronics (US)
    • Edmund Optics (US)
    • GCS (US)
    • Accelink (China)
    • NORINCO GROUP (China).

    Market Dynamics

    The growing use of optical technology in the industrial sector, rise in digitization in emerging countries, and surge in the demand for diagnostic devices & systems in the healthcare sector are some of the key factors propelling the market growth. Moreover, the rising adoption of optics in R&D activities is another key factor augmenting the product demand. However, technical issues related to the use of avalanche photodiodes are likely to hamper industry growth.

    Segment's Analysis

    Type Trends

    Based on type, the avalanche photodiode market is categorized into silicon-based, indium gallium arsenide, germanium materials, and others. The silicon-based segment held a significant market share in 2020 and is estimated to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast timeline. Silicon-based avalanche photodiodes are sensitive in the wavelength region from ≈ 450 to 1000 nm, with the maximum responsivity occurring around 600–800 nm, and are cheaper than other types. Also, silicon-based APDs offer high sensitivity ranging from UV to NIR for low light detection at high speeds, thereby bolstering the segment growth.

    Regional Trends

    By region, the Asia Pacific market accounted for a significant share in 2020 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the following years. This is mainly ascribed to the strong presence of consumer electronics and semiconductor companies in South Korea, China, Taiwan, and Japan. Also, increasing product adoption in industrial, medical, and mobility sectors for laser devices and optical scanners, further proliferates the regional market growth.

    COVID-19 Impact on Avalanche Photodiode (APD) Market

    The COVID-19 outbreak has moderately affected the Avalanche Photodiode (APD) industry. This is mainly due to soaring coronavirus cases, implementation of stringent lockdown measures, and limited movement of people to curb the spread of the virus. This resulted in supply chain disruption and restriction in transportation, which further affected the product demand.
