ďThe Digital Scent Technology market was valued at $156 Million in 2014 and is expected to reach $691 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 30.4% between 2015 and 2020Ē.

Various factors such as the application of e-noses in the quality assessment of raw materials in the food & beverage industry, and in clinical diagnosis are driving the growth of the digital scent technology market. Unpredictability of air flow and chemicals may harm  human health and these are major challenges for companies operating in the market. This report profiles major companies present in the market such as Smiths Detection Inc. (U.S.), Scent Sciences Corporation (U.S.), ams AG (Austria), Alpha MOS SA (France), Electronics Sensor Technology (U.S.), ScentSational Technologies LLC (U.S.), Scentcom Ltd. (Israel), AIRSENSE Analytics GmbH (Germany), and The eNose Company (Netherlands).

Digital scent technology is used for sensing and generating smells by using a hardware device and software program. Hardware devices generate smells with the help of a software program which is installed in electronic products such as computer systems, mobile phones, and tablets. Scent synthesizers and e-noses are the major hardware devices used in the digital scent technology market. Additionally, MEMS- (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and NEMS- (micro-electro-mechanical systems) based e-noses are the latest technological advancements. These types of e-noses are being used in military & defense and healthcare sectors for detecting explosives, and early detection of diseases, respectively.
