APD Avalanche Photodiode (APD) is a highly sensitive semiconductor electronic device that exploits the photoelectric effect to convert light to electricity. APDs can be thought of as photodetectors that provide a built-in first stage of gain through avalanche multiplication. From a functional standpoint, they can be regarded as the semiconductor analog to photomultipliers. By applying a high reverse bias voltage, APDs show an internal current gain effect due to impact ionization. However, some silicon APDs employ alternative doping and beveling techniques compared to traditional APDs that allow greater voltage to be applied before breakdown is reached and hence a greater operating gain. In general, the higher the reverse voltage, the higher the gain.
Global sales of APD Avalanche Photodiode have been increasing during the past five years with an average growth rate of 7.10%. Compared to 2016, APD Avalanche Photodiode market managed to increase revenue by 5.44 percent to $124.46 million worldwide in 2017 from $118.04 million in 2016. Overall, the APD Avalanche Photodiode market performance is positive, despite the weak economic environment.
