Global Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) Market to Reach US$ 229.6 Million by 2032, Driven by Advancements in LiDAR Technology

August 17, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) Market Report by Type (NUV SiPM, RGB SiPM), Device Type (Analog SiPM, Digital SiPM), Application (LiDAR, Medical Imaging, High Energy Physics, Hazard and Threat Detection, and Others), Industry Vertical (Automotive, Healthcare, IT and Telecommunication, Aerospace, Oil and Gas, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) market size reached US$ 139.0 Million in 2023. A silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) is a highly sensitive semiconductor-based photodetector that can detect individual photons of light. It operates on the principle of avalanche photodiodes, using arrays of tiny microcells connected in parallel. Each microcell within a silicon photomultiplier works as a Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode, which means that when a photon strikes the silicon material, it generates an electron-hole pair. These charge carriers then undergo avalanche multiplication, which is creating a measurable current pulse. Due to the parallel configuration of numerous microcells, silicon photomultipliers offer a higher photon-detection efficiency as compared to traditional photomultiplier tubes. Silicon photomultipliers are gaining popularity in numerous fields, including medical imaging (such as positron emission tomography), high-energy physics experiments, LiDAR technology, and low-level light detection in astronomy. Their compact size, robustness, and compatibility with standard semiconductor manufacturing processes make them attractive for a wide range of applications.

Global Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) Market Trends:

The extensive use of silicon photomultipliers in medical imaging applications, particularly in positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) systems represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the silicon photomultiplier market across the globe. This, coupled with the increasing prevalence of cancer and neurological disorders is leading to a higher demand for accurate and sensitive medical imaging techniques, which is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology is widely used in various applications, including autonomous vehicles, environmental monitoring, and surveying. SiPMs offer high sensitivity and fast response times, which is making them ideal for LiDAR systems, thus driving its demand. The field of high-energy physics relies heavily on SiPMs for particle detection and time-of-flight measurements. As research and experiments in this area continue to advance, the demand for SiPMs with improved sensitivity and timing resolution increases. SiPMs play a crucial role in various biotechnological applications, including fluorescence-based assays, DNA sequencing, and flow cytometry. The enhanced focus on personalized medicine and life science research is facilitating the adoption of SiPMs in this sector. As SiPM technology improves, there is an increased interest in integrating these photodetectors into consumer electronics. Applications include facial recognition in smartphones, gesture recognition, and augmented reality devices. The ongoing research and development (R&D) activities are leading to improved manufacturing processes, which are resulting in lower production costs and higher performance. These advancements are making SiPMs more accessible to a broader range of applications and industries. SiPMs are gaining traction in space missions and astronomy projects due to their high sensitivity in detecting low-level light, thereby making them valuable for studying celestial objects and phenomena. In various scientific and industrial applications, such as fluorescence microscopy, scintillation detectors, and low-light imaging systems, SiPMs offer superior performance as compared to traditional photomultiplier tubes or other photodetectors. The increasing demand for high-performance sensors in industrial automation, robotics, and security systems is driving interest in SiPMs, which offer excellent sensitivity and reliability, thus creating a positive outlook for the market across the globe. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 229.6 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 5.6% during 2024-2032.
