A photodiode is a semiconductor device that converts light into an electrical current. A photodiode has two terminals: a cathode and an anode. The current is generated when photons are absorbed in the photodiode. Photodiodes may contain optical filters, built-in lenses, and may have large or small surface areas. Photodiodes usually have a slower response time as their surface area increases. Photodiode is very sensitive to light so when light or photons falls on the photodiode it easily converts light into electric current.
The demand for photodiodes has shown an increasing trend, because of their various applications. They are used in consumer electronics devices such as compact disc players, smoke detectors, and the receivers for remote controls in VCRs and televisions. In other consumer items such as camera light meters, clock radios and street lights. In addition, they are often used for accurate measurement of light intensity in science and industry. In terms of volume, global photodiode market in 2017 stood at 408.22 million units and is expected to reach XX million units by 2025 growing at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2025. In terms of revenue, global photodiode market in 2017 stood at USD XX million and is expected to reach USD 906.75 million by 2025 growing at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2025.
On the basis of type, photodiode can be segmented as PN photodiode, PIN photodiode, Avalanche photodiode, Schottky photodiode and others. PIN photodiode occupied larger share than that of XX type of photodiode. Major applications of photodiode can be classified as telecommunication, health care, consumer electronics, aerospace & defense and others.
